HOW TO LAUNCH RETRIEVE A BOAT
Hi, Lochie Daddo here for the National Maritime Museum in Sydney. Now there's a couple of situations that should be avoided at all costs. One Forgetting to take your pyjamas off before you head to the office and two launching a boat at a busy boat ramp. Now boat ramps are pressure cooker situations and on any given weekend boats are dinged, cars are dipped and a lot of egos are bruised as people try to retrieve and launch their boats the wrong way. So we thought we'd have a chat to Kathryn Kershaw who's one of the Ship Keepers at.
The National Maritime Museum here in Sydney about how to keep your reputation intact when you're on the ramp. Well Kath, here we are at the dreaded boat ramp and it's a slippery one at that. What's the etiquette for launching a boat Well the main thing you've got to remember is to not jump the queue. So take a look at how the boat ramp works and just make sure that you get in the right position. One of the other things is to make sure that you do all of your prep while you're either.
In the queue or before you dump in to minimise the time spent on the ramp. What are the biggest mistakes that you see people make It's amazing the number of people that launch their boats without the bungs in and Oh. Yes and with the tie downs still on and they wonder why they can't get it off the trailer. Alright Kathryn, what are the top tips for launching a boat Well it's really important to make sure that you're fully prepared. So make sure that you've got your fenders in place, lines that you need, and one of the important things.
Is making sure that your trailer lights off if they're not submersible and waterproof. Make sure you have a look at the lay of the land and any obstacles that might be in your way. What is the art to backing your boat down to the water Well it's really important just to take your time and make sure that the boat and the car are in a nice straight line, and then back back slowly. So one really important thing is to make sure that you don't unhook your safety chain until you're in the water.
And ready to go otherwise your boat might float away without you and it won't be a very fun day. And what should we do once we get the boat into the water Well it's really important to move away as quickly as possible. So a lot of boat ramps these days have pontoons located nearby so if you move your boat to the as far away on the pontoon as you can and tie up, and you can also take your car back off the boat ramp. So you've had a great day out on the harbour, now it's time to bring your boat back, go.
Home. What's the art of putting your boat back on a trailer Well when you're coming in just make sure that the centre of the boat is lined up with the centre of the trailer. So as soon as you're in far enough hook your winch on and you can winch your boat up. Move away to an area that's out of the way and then you can put all your tie downs back on. Make sure it's all secured make sure the safety chain is back on and all your lights and head home.
Well thanks to Kathryn I'm now feeling a little bit more confident when it comes to launching my boat. So there's a couple of things to remember Prepare your boat on land not in the water. Make sure that your bungs are in. It's a good idea to check out the ramp at low tide before you use it and when it comes to backing your car down align your boat and your car. Finally the last thing is when it comes to retrieving the boat do it all in reverse. Well kind of.

Two Years of Building a 16th Century Spanish Galleon
Gtgtgt It's a big day at Spanish landing park the two year anniversary of this empty parking lot's transformation into a 16th century shipyard. gtgtgt It's something you don't see every day a big old ship sitting out here in the parking lot. gtgtgt Peter Wilson began instruction on the San Salvador two years ago today. gtgtgt We have made a lot of progress, a lot of progress. gtgtgt Employees have been joined by hundreds of volunteers, in fact, volunteers now makeup half the work force. gtgtgt There are chain links over there that.
We have been working on, we're going to do about 5 more of them today. gtgtgt Don faulknev a black Smith who volunteers ever Thursday using a procedure used in the early 1500s. They're building a historical replica of the first ship to land on San Diego's shores in 1542 explorer Cabrillo floated the boat into San Diego bay he claimed this land for Spain. No plans of the San Salvador exist so naval architect, Douglas sharp says the design process has taken ten years. gtgtgt We look at ancient charts of what the ship would look like in the corners of the.
Charts, we looked at models from cathedrals in Spain. gtgtgt At this time scaffold be has been added around the ship and the completion of the hull's frame. What is left gtgt We have to flag the outside of the boat, put the planking down, plank the sides, fill up the sides, there is finishing work which takes a lot of time. gtgtgt The finished San Salvador will be more than 100 feet long have a 100 feet metal mast and it's about 60 to 70 complete with about 20 to 30 volunteers working on it daily.
Gtgtgt We are working with a smaller crew than we envisioned and taking longer to build the ship but more people than we thought are getting a chance to see it so we're happy with the pace of the construction. gtgtgt The replica was supposed to be finished by the end of the year now they're hoping the end of 2014. The project is expected to cost $6.2 million, once complete the San Salvador will take paying customers warned trips on San Diego bay and sailing up the California coast.
