DIY Dock Protector

Boating is a huge part of cottage life but there's one thing about boats thats got me stumped What's the point of having a rub rail if the darn thing never touches the dock It's about as useless as having a parachute at a spelling bee Sure boat bumpers do their work, but they wear the side of the boat big time Well today we're going to bridge that gap between boat and dock To illustrate we have a boat.we have a dock and our boats even equipped with a rub rail.

So what's the issue Well, the problem is that the boat rides above the dock most often in order to bridge that gap most of us add bumpers bumpers wear on the haul.so what if we could turn the dock vertical therefore allowing the rub rail to do its job well we could do that simply by adding a couple pieces Every boat and dock is unique For my boat, my dock, I determined thirty two inches was the right height so all we need to do now is mount them the dock.

I'm going to do that with lag bolts and recess the holes because I'm also going to add this dock edge and the head of the bolt would obviously interfere with the face of the dock edge Alright I got my lags I'm just gonna start them.I'm putting two in the bottom because that's where most of the torque is and then once the vertical pieces are mounted this will go overtop and its screwed in okay let's go down to the dock Most boats taper towards the bowel about midship.

So let's put one of our vertical pieces there And.maybe back here Alright so I'm bringing down this so the bottom of my vertical piece is flush to the bottom of my dock So I'm going to hammer this one in to get it started I'll use the ratchet for the bottom ones So next we're going to add this vinyl dock edge to our vertical, to give us even greater protection bigger boats are of course going to require more vertical supports and perhaps be struck back to the dock for increased strength.

But hey, we finally got the rub rail doing what it was designed to do and for us older folks.no I'm not included in that bracket sorry There's a handy grab rail so we can get in and out of the boat now I'm gonna hang onto the boat bumpers because a lot of dock owners aren't as cool as we are! But as far as I'm concerned we solved our problem.For Cottage Life, this is Wayne Lennox reminding you that a little project goes a long way at the cottage!.

Cardboard Model Car Sponge Boat Sponge Boat Supplies

Now, we're going to be making a small boat and it's going to be made out of sponges. Let's go and take a look at the supplies we'll need for it. The first thing is we'll need one nice large sponge. Now, the sponge is going to be cut and we're going to be making a second layer and gluing it on top of the bottom layer of the sponge. I always keep, when I do this project, I keep a second sponge handy because there might be a possibility that when we cut around and give the shape of the base of the boat the excess might not.

Be enough to create our second layer. Usually it is but it's always good to have a second sponge on hand just in case you don't have enough from the excess to create the second layer of the boat. So, we have to have one nice sized sponge and you can have a backup. We need a toothpick. The toothpick will be our flag that we're going to put on top of the top layer. We're going to be using scissors to cut our sponge. We're going to be using permanent markers. Now, the permanent markers we have various colors to decorate the boat.

They should be permanent markers because when it goes inside the water we don't want the color to run. Now, it's also good for this project, which you don't see here, is that you could use paints that are made for decorating cloth. Usually if you want to decorate a tshirt there's certain types of paints that are used for that and they're very strong paints that won't come off in the wash. Again, this boat is going to be placed in the water so it's also a good type of paint for this project as well. We're going to be using permanent.

How to Do a Boat Based River Rescue Using a Tow Line in Boat Related River Rescues

A tow line is something that as a kayaker and as a paddler, is particularly useful if you are dealing with capsized boats or something that you just emptied and then need to take over a long distance to get to shore and get into a secure spot where you can get it back to the paddler that it belongs to. The tow line is used with a rescue belt so with this particular jacket, you've got a small ring here that runs into a pocket where the majority of the line is. With this, the rope unfolds out and you are left with a carabiner on the.

End of it. Now it is a really good idea to keep it in a pocket so that way this cord is close to your body and it is less likely to get snagged on. But you are also avoiding having an unlocking carabiner on the outside of your jacket where it could potentially get snagged. Once you take this, you are going to make sure it is behind you as you clip on to it and you can either clip directly onto the grab bar of the kayak or if you got.

To go around the canoe, force or something that is a little thicker, the carabiner won't directly clip on to, then thread it underneath, wrap it back over and then clip on to the rope attached to the flip line. Once you've got it clipped, grab your paddle and you can be pretty maneuverable towing the kayak. As you do this, make sure the cord doesn't become wrapped around anything downstream if you happen to go through some narrow gaps and if it does, then you've got the quick release if you need to.

How to Design EcoFriendly Kids Rooms Pottery Barn Kids

Growing Spaces Going Green I'm Zem Joaquin, I am editor in chief and founder of ecofabulous, a website devoted to style and sustainability. I really wanted my kids' rooms to be fun and inviting, and exciting for them and for their friends, but of course they still had to be environmentally conscious. My daughter had this kitchen that she was so madly in love with, the little pink kitchen, so the whole design approach was, let's work around this kitchen and many houses do that so it seemed totally appropriate. My daughter wanted something that was stylish,.

A little bit edgy, but of course she's a little girl so she wanted lots of pink, so we used the pottery barn organic cotton sheets, and we then used the old comforter cover that we had. I found a vintage chandelier when I was at a flea market one day and then luckily I ended up finding a complimentary mirror. We also did of course non VOC paints on the walls, and then, she wanted something really glamorous so we added in the silver cork floors, and then you've got the beautiful pink silk curtains.

That kind of delineate the space so it feels like she's got a little stage behind her bedroom, which is actually the bathroom. We kept as much of the original tile and finishes as we possibly could. With my son's room, he was so in love with his speed boat style bed, that we decided to create a space that really felt like the ocean. You wanted it to feel like it was out in the middle of the water, so we put that giant framed photo that puts you way in the water.

And we did the blue floors so it feels like the boat is truly sitting in the water. Then we complimented it with the traditional plantation shutters but I was lucky enough to find shutters that were made out of sustainably harvested bamboo. The bathroom was a lot of fun to create because he wanted it to feel kind of like part of the boat, so we were able to find porthole mirrors, that really created that feeling and we just played on it with the blue walls that are you know, again.

Cantonese narration This is a homemade model boat. It is different from a motordriven model boat. It is driven by water. The boat has two components. One is the hull made of polystyrene and the other is a metal can with a tube connected to its bottom. First, block the opening of the tube with your finger. Then add water into the can. Release your hand. It will move forwards. Explain the motion of the boat with the law of conservation of momentum.
