The aim of this publication is to describe the use of timber for marine and fresh water constructional purposes. It indicates how timber can provide a solution to many of the problems confronting dock, harbour and river board engineers and others, concerned with water construction. With a knowledge of the hazards to which timber may be exposed, and careful selection of the species with the most appropriate properties for the job, a satisfactory and long lasting structure can be obtained at relatively low cost. The principle functions of marine and fresh water structures where timber is utilized and which are described here are:- (a) The prevention of erosion of the sea coast and of river and canal banks. (b) The construction of wharfs, jetties, docks and dock gates, and the protection of such structures by fendering and rubbing pieces. (c) The construction of marinas and yacht havens.

I have just bought a yacht back from France with a NAVICOM RT 450 DSC a couple of years old. But I cannot get the full range of radio channels, especially M1 and M2, is it me or the radio? Is the radio set on USA rather than International channels? There's usually a means of switching from one to the other.

Welcome to Boatworks Today, a show supported by viewers like you! Hey everybody, my name is Andy Miller and I am the creator of Boatworks Today… A little bit about myself and this show! I went to college at St. Norberts just outside of Green Bay (GO PACKERS!) and finished up there with a BA in Psychology and Sociology. Finding out a little too late into the curriculum, I decided that I didn’t really want to spend the rest of my life listening to people complain about themselves (yea, I had some internships that left a bad taste in my mouth). So, after graduation I was off to figure out what it is that I REALLY wanted to do with my life. I bounced around a bit, met the lovely person who is now my Wife, bought a sailboat and we lived on it for a while. Became a scuba instructor, but decided that boats were something that called out to me. I took an entry level apprenticeship position at one of the local marinas and after roughly 7 years with them I decided to pull the trigger and venture off on my own. Miller Boatworks was created, and the rest as they say is history! MBW focuses on cosmetic repair (gelcoat, paint, fiberglass) as well as custom woodworking & refinishing and complete boat restoration..

Many people have written in and commented that an electric motor is only good for day sailors who weren’t going very far each day, and that you need a reliable diesel engine for long distance cruising. But we feel like the opposite is true. Since we don’t have a dock to tie up to and charge our batteries each night, we rely on sailing to recharge our system. The longer we sail and the more sun we get, the more power we make. Because we don’t have a 9-5 to return to at the end of a fun weekend out on the boat, we have no schedules requiring that we make it back to the dock on time, no matter what the wind is doing. So, we feel that an electric motor, depending on your sailing style, can be adapted to any boat. But, you have to be willing to work around the one major draw back, range.

Living on a houseboat in London: living on the water is no longer an alternative lifestyle choice as Londoners look to rivers and canals for better value homes. Londoners looking for a central home on a budget are hitting the water — and avoiding stamp duty in the process. The number of Londoners resorting to living on boats has rocketed — with many driven off dry land by the high price of conventional homes. The number of boats registered to be moored on London waterways has increased by nearly 60 per cent in the past five years to almost 4,000, according to latest figures from the Canal & River Trust, which manages 100 miles of canals in the capital including the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals. Many other floating households are in private marinas or at moorings along the Thames.

Papaia Praia was born from a mother and daughter’s dream. A pharmacist and a dentist, both with one will: create a swimwear for the real women. For the Portuguese woman with all the shapes, for the mother running after her children at the beach, for the young woman who wants a delicate and feminine item, for the woman who doesn’t want to show much and the one who likes to show too much. We wanted designs that embodies the reality of every woman not made for cover-models. Because our world, though dreamful, it’s the real world. We created our brand in 2017, almost as a joke, with every item handmade by us in a guestroom turned atelier. A couple of friends’ orders became hundreds of requests from friends of friends and customer all over the country, thus, in March 2018 Papaia Praia was launched, with national production and full dedication to this project. All our items are designed and hand-made in Portugal, with high quality fabrics. We are environmentally conscious, our lycras come from fishermen and plastics found in the ocean, and we work in a controlled and safe environment. We are a Portuguese brand. Designed for Portuguese women. And made in Portugal. All our products are produced with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™, providing durability 5 to 10 times higher than regular fabric.

What does owning a canal boat cost? Every owner is different, they cruise for longer or shorter periods, moor in different areas of the country under many different conditions, some in purpose built marinas others alongside a farmers field with no facilities. The actual cost will therefore vary with the circumstances; however, the following will give a guide to the new boater. The example given is for a 55ft boat, originally built to provide a reasonably high standard of comfort including a diesel generator. It has a reasonably high usage of about 100 days per year and is maintained to a reasonably high standard without being excessive.
