Does a self inflating raft require oxygen?

Self inflating rafts come with their own compressed air; that's why they are self inflating. If it was not self inflating you would have to pump air into it to inflate it. In either case, rafts can be inflated by any form of gas, it does not have to be oxygen.

What is rafting?

White water rafting is a popular type of outdoor sport, especially in the United States. Also called simply rafting, white water rafting is an exciting aquatic adventure that can be enjoyed by individuals of all skill levels with proper guiding and instruction. In some areas of the United States, white water rafting is available year round, although it is generally seasonal, depending on snow pack, rain, and dam release schedules. White water rafting uses specialized rubber rafts that are very sturdy and flexible. These rafts can accommodate a wide range of people, depending on need and build, although eight to ten individuals is a standard number. All the rafters have paddles, which are used to guide and propel the raft through the water. With a trained guide, it is possible to have a raft with only one or two experienced people and a crew of novices, depending on the difficulty of the waters being rafted. The excitement in white water rafting comes from the white water, a term referring to the level of turbulence in the river, or rapids. White water can be caused by changes in elevation to the riverbed, rocks or other obstacles in the water, and flow from snow melt and rain. White water rapids have a range of classes, from one, which indicates small, slow moving rapids that are safe for all levels of experience, to six, which indicates a dangerous and perhaps never tested rapid that should only be attempted by professionals. Rafters can take short trips consisting of a few hours and culminating at a pickup point further down the river, or longer expeditions that combine white water rafting and camping. Especially in the West, longer camping and rafting trips are quite popular and a wonderful way to see nature, often quite intimately. A wide range of white water rafting companies exist, many of which provide a range of experiences, from adventures geared towards more professionally trained individuals to family rafting trips, on which rafters will rarely encounter anything above a two. There is an element of risk to rafting even on class one rapids, which can be alleviated by taking basic training, wearing safety gear, and obeying the instructions of your guide at all times. Basic swimming abilities are also strongly recommended in case of emergency. Especially when rafting higher classes, it is assumed that rafters have professional training and a much better knowledge of their abilities. In more highly rated rapids, safety precautions should always be observed to prevent injury, and rafters should be aware of prevailing weather conditions as well. When done with safety in mind, white water rafting is great fun and a fantastic way to get in touch with the outdoors. * http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-white-water-rafting.htmwhat is rafting and how it is done? what are the requirements? 'Rafting' is also a term used when multiple boats tie up together side-by-side.

How do your oars make the boat move?

They act as levers. By placing the oar in the water, the resistance then essentially fixes on end of the oar so it cannot move. Then, the gate at the end of the rigger acts as a pivot point to push the boat past this fixed point

Does the height of a person confer a mechanical advantage in rowing?

Taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rowing_%28sport%29

Competitive rowing favors tall, muscular athletes due to the additional leverage height provides in pulling the oar through the water as well as the explosive power needed to propel the boat at high speed. Open or heavyweight rowers of both sexes tend to be very tall, broad-shouldered, have long arms and legs as well as tremendous cardiovascular capacity and very low body fat ratios. Olympic or International level heavyweight male oarsmen are typically anywhere between 6'3" and 6'9" (190 cm to 206 cm) tall with most being around 6'6" (198 cm) and weighing approximately 225 lb (102 kg) with about 6 to 7% body fat. Heavyweight women are slightly shorter at around 6'1" (180 cm) and lighter than their male counterparts.

Hope This Helps.

What is the speed of a cruise ship?

Most cruise ships travel about 20-25 knots.

A Nautical Mile is about 1.15 stutue miles. However they don't always go that fast. Sometimes when they are going to a port overnight that is not that far they actually just float around awhile, however, if the port is quite far they travel at maximum service speed.
The average speed of a cruise ship is between 21 to 24 knots. However, this greatly depends on the actual length and weight of the overall cruise ship.

How many miles per hour can a boat travel?

Travel on water is generally measured in knots (nautical miles per hour). The fastest speedboats today are cruising briefly at speeds over 200 miles per hour. However, a lot will depend on the type of cargo and the size of the vessel. Most boats comfortably travel at around 18-20 knots and cruise ships (weighing in at around 80,000 tons) cruise at about 13 knots. It depends on the horsepower. A boats speed all depends on the pitch of the wheel or propeller. It has a LOT to do with the hull too. I'll give you a real-world example: Marty Stone is a professional bass angler who uses 200-horse Mercury engines on his boats. He can go 75mph, no problem at all. Bass boats are made so very little of them is in the water when they're on plane. I went to WorldCat's website and looked at prop test data for the smallest center console they make that runs over-200hp engines. Those boats come out of the factory with two outboards, and there's not a configuration and power setting available that will push that boat faster than about 58mph. Horsepower ain't everything, folks; if it was, the 77-foot Hatteras with twin 2400-horse MTU diesels could outrun an unlimited hydroplane. The 175,000 pounds the boat weighs might have something to do with its relative pokiness.
