Re: Lightning ?

The one thing everybody knows about lighting- is that nobody knows much about lightning.

In my opinion, one should create the most direct route to ground from the mast through your keel. If all...

Re: Lightning ?

I believe it is a mistake to associate indirect lightning damage to EMP.

The bolt of lightning you see is the super condensed plasma arc of the strike- the "visible center" where current is...

They should get their money back if that monstrosity DIDN'T capsize. It was obvously designed to turn turtle on contact. Egads, that thing is ugly. Maybe it wouldn't need fin stabs if it wasn't a...

Re: New take on wind energy?

Yes and no, and the "no" part primarily comes into play when you factor in losses, the cost of production vs. output value, and design limits. Similar to the girl's flashlight, you can run a clock...

Re: Hours on watch. Navy research.

Nice article, but I agree with Fryewe 100%. Shipboard watchstanding is only 1/3 of the daily equation. I can't speak for submarines, but I can speak for surface ships.

Watchstanding is a big...

Re: A 60 foot sailboat for $2,600 found on Craigslist

It's not such a bad idea...

I suggest we chain them to an oar and tape a bottle of Mad Dog to the forward bulkhead. The one who can row to the bottle gets it.

One of them ought to show some...
