Depends on the boat as well. Some boats have different hull designs. So you would need a little more information to answer that question.

Older TVs were prone to what was called a "Burn In" where if animage appeared on the screen for too long it would become burntinto the screen. Newer TVs don't have this problem, but these"Screen Savers" still exist as a legacy purpose.
More surface area foils more wind. Actually, the wind PULLS a boat after foiling around the curve of the sail. It is the same aerodynamic theory of "lift".
you use a hollow bamboo tree and blow in the water and then the boat moves
Are you in the water, is land anywhere insight, are there peoplewith you, are you alone, is the raft upside down, or is itsubmerged underwater? Also: Ocean, Lake, River, or Pool?

It would take around 2hrs and 30 mins by an average boat
There is no clear record of a ship by the name Betsy Blue, but this is no indication that there never has been. Being sort of sing-song, it is very likely that someone, somewhere has used the name, likely for a private yacht.
they jump on a boat and then they pull you up with a rope and give you breathing devises
Giza is right on the border of Cairo - it practically is in Cairo,right o the southern end of the Nile Delta on the Western shore.And the river no longer runs next to Giza as it did in ancienttimes. But it is not far from the Nile's shore to the Giza plateau.Definitely within walking distance.

The Middle Passage − straight from Wikipedia
There was no program for it. It was just done as a matter of conducting the war itself. If there were casualties from an air action, then rescue helicopters were deployed; if there where casualties involving infantrymen (grunts) then medics were deployed along with stretchers or just carrying the...

Lusitania wasn't a German submarine, it was an American merchantship that was sunk by German submarines.
10. George Washington Class By the grim logic of the Cold War, submarines armed with strategic nuclear missiles did much to keep the peace. Hidden under the ocean and extremely difficult to detect, the nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine (SSBN) was the perfect deterrent. A potential...
no, it's only a set that they built.
46 Code of Federal Regulations-section 2304 "A master or individual in charge of a vessel shall render assistance to any individual found at sea in danger of being lost, so far as the master or individual in charge can do so without serious danger to the master's or individual's vessel or...
The submarine referenced is the USS Bowfin (SS-287) but stock footage and sets were used in the film. The Navy did not allow filming onboard submarines until the end of the Cold War, and even then it's strictly regulated for security reasons. Even submarine crewmembers require permission from the CO...
Yes, but not always it is necessary.
the regulations is that it has to be 1/20th behide the bow of the ship and it has to be water tight
A list, the boat is listing. A boat or ship sometimes lists to the right. That can be due to a number of reasons. Most likely too much cargo or ballast is on the starboard side of the ship. This is not a desirable condition. Ideally the ship should be level. There are certain ships that when they...
Both are really hard, it just depends in what sense you mean. Flat water is extremely technical in terms of the dynamics of the stroke, and the 2k race distance is a world of pain. In surf rowing, the stroke is not as technical, but you are bouncing over waves, meaning you regularly become airborne...
No. Ballast Island is a privately owned island with a few homes on it. If you are looking for boat rental or housing look to Put In Bay. Ballast is only a few minute boat ride away, and although you won't be able to go on the island or dock there, you can at least see it. A word of warning, do not...
It's not just Submarines - women sponsor all U.S. Navy ships and submarines, and most other countries do as well. It has not always been that way, and the christening tradition came to the U.S. from Europe. The U.S. Navy originally had their christenings performed by men. The first recorded...

The United States currently has the largest blue-water Navy on the planet. China's Navy is largely coastal more than anything else, and though they seek to expand, having ships and submarines and knowing how to use them strategically is another story. Even the Russians, who had a substantial blue...
The Dragon boat festival is celebrated in honour of Wu Zixu, an advisor in ancient China. He was forced to commit suicide by the king, so he tied a rock to his feet and jumped into the river. The people revered Wu Zixu as a river god after his death.

Boating regulations vary from state to state, so it is important to check the regulations within the state that you are boating. Many states allow you to have PFDs accessible but not worn when boating, kayaking and/or canoeing. Most Inflatable PFDs are US Coast Guard approved - the same as non...

Fire has always been used to help carve out the wood from a log to create canoes around the world. We are fortunate that we have first-hand accounts and pictures of the Powhatan people using fire to help with this process. The fire must be controlled in some way, but essentially the interior area of...
The system was known as the Escorted Convoy System, and was used to great effect by the Allies to counter the early successes of the U-boat fleet. The convoy system, in concert with advances in ASW techniques and long-range bomber support, eventually pushed U-boat losses to over 70% for the Germans.
I do not believe any cruise line offers that itinerary
It depends. I assume you are referring to small boats- and nothing on the order of the Titanic disaster! One fim dealt with two literally ( fatally as it turns out) Lost Scuba divers- a man and a woman, presumably married. this was called OPEN WATER. a somewhat milder or impact-reduced treatment can...
P = paddling speed C = speed of the current Upstream: 6 = 4 (P - C) Downstream: 6 = 3 (P + C) 4P - 4C = 6 3P + 3C = 6 12P - 12C = 18 12P + 12C = 24 Add the equations: 24P = 42 P = 42/24 = 1.75 mph Subtract the equations: -24C = -6 C = 0.25 mph
Submariners historically enjoy better food than the rest of thefleet, in part because it's hazardous duty, and also because of thesmaller crews. Food is more easily prepared for just over ahundred, as opposed to several hundred or a few thousand on largeships. Unlike ships, who can resupply...
Though David Bushnell's Turtle is thefirst submarine credited with use in combat during theRevolutionary War, it never made much of an impact as none of itsattacks were successful. The Confederate States' Army confiscated the privately builtsubmarine H.L. Hunley (now beingpreserved in...
The fear was that Japanese Americans represented a security threat to the US and that they might rendezvous with submarines at sea to pass intelligence. There is no indication of any disloyalty by Japanese Americans in the records of WWII.

If you fell off, and you were without your skis, you should make tons of noise like yelling,"Hey, over here!" If they still do not see you, splash in the water, and if there is a stick nearby you could wave it in the air.
Thank you for your reply, the HP is 7.6 Mercury Thunderbolt. In order to determine the year model for a Mercury outboard, in addition to the serial number, the engine horsepower is needed as well.
Dateline Boats were manufactured at Dockray Hall , Kendal in the 70's. The range at the time consisted of the Suva, Samoa, Bikini, Bounty, Bounty GL, Fijian and Hawiian.

Fresh water. Salt water is denser and therefore makes things more boyant. Ships have marks painted on the side of their hull, usually welded lines and then painted over, that show their load limits in salt and fresh water. These lines are known as Plimsol lines or International Load Lines.
