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.

How To Back A Trailer Boat

Hey folks. Glenn May here with BassResource, and I want to give you a tip on how to back your trailer down the ramp in an easy and effective manner. A couple of things actually and more than one tip. First off, when you're backing down the the ramp, forget about left turns right and right turns left and trying to figure all that out. Quick tip to remember. Take your hand, put it down at the bottom of the steering wheel and now whichever direction you want the rig to go, just move your hand that way. If you want to go left, move your hand left. If you.

Want to go right, just move your hand to the right. It's that simple. The trailer will follow whichever direction you put your hand. Now, when you're going down a steep ramp, put the gear in neutral. Let the boat pull you down rather than you pushing it down. It will go a lot straighter that way. You'd be surprised how much easier it is to go down a real steep ramp, especially a long one, when you put the truck into neutral and let the trailer pull you down. Little bit different,.

But you'll notice the difference. Lastly, use your mirrors. Don't look over your shoulder. A matter of fact, you'll be a lot more efficient if you don't. Let me show you how. As you're going down the ramp, look in your mirror. Make sure that your trailer. You can see some of your trailer sticking out from the fender of your truck. Now, as you practice this, you'll see that as you see more of your trailer or less of your trailer, you just need to adjust accordingly to be able to prevent the trailer from going way.

Too far on the right or way too far to the left. I guarantee you, by doing this, you will go a lot straighter down the ramp. Because if you're looking over your shoulder, you won't see those minor nuances, those minor details until it's really out of wack and then you got to make a big adjustment. If you're looking at it through your rear view mirror and you just line up that fender with the trailer fender and you just watch how closely that is, you'll go nice and straight down the ramp.

How to make a mini ROCKET LAUNCHER!

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to make a mini rocket launcher that's safe enough to use indoors. Find yourself a white board marker pen. I chose this one because of it's rocketlike shape. Next, you'll need to take the pen apart using a pair of pliers. We'll only be using these three pieces. This part will be used as a blast chamber. This part will be used to hold the rocket in place and you'll use this part to make the rocket. Next, find a barbecue lighter and remove the igniter from inside.

Then find a drill bit that matches the diameter of the igniter and drill a hole at the back of the blast chamber. Heat up a small screwdriver or nail and pierce a hole at the back of the blast chamber like this. Cut the wires on the igniter to about half an inch and then insert the igniter, with the bottom wire, into the hole you drilled earlier. Push the other wire through the smaller hole that you made and use hot glue to hold everything together and create a tight seal.

Wrap the blast chamber in electrical tape or paint it to give it a custom look. Next, grab the marker lid and break off the pocket clip. If you find any rough edges, scrape them off with a knife. Your rocket is almost done but, it will need some stabilizing fins. I found that guitar picks work just great! Find two guitar picks in your favorite color and cut them in half. Glue them onto the body of the rocket and you're ready to launch! But, before you go around blasting off your rockets.

Now might be a good time to put on some safety glasses. To load your rocket, dip a cotton bud in some rubbing alcohol and apply it to the inside of the blast chamber. All you need to do now is assemble your rocket launcher and then press the igniter to fire! If you liked this tutorial ,be sure to check out my channel for more just like it.

How to make an Air Powered Water Balloon Cannon Launcher

Hey guys it's Mike from The Geek Pub and on this episode I'm gonna show you how to make this or some air powered and water balloon cannon! Before starting this project will be to travel to local hardware store for these parts. You can find a parts list for this and other projects at TheGeekPub To get started we'll need to cut two twelve inch pieces of PVC pipe and six three inch pieces of one inch PVC pipe. I used my compound miter saw to cut the PVC. When cutting PVC.

With a powersaw be sure to use a segmented blade. Using a standard blade could result in dangerous kickbacks. And of course regardless of the method you choose always wear good eye protection. After we get the PVC pipe cut it's time to test fit all of our components. Let's start by assembling the pressure tanks. The pressure tanks are connected by a one inch PVC tee. Another tee is added to split incoming air from outgoing air and will be connected to our firing mechanism which is a simple water sprinkler.

Valve. On top of the tee we will add a threequarter inch ball valve. This will allow us to charge the tanks and close the system for portable firing. Now we need to take one of the one inch PVC caps and drill a one quarter inch hole for an air compressor quick release. This is how we will pressurized the system. It's attached directly behind the ball valve. Just add the twentyfour inch firing barrel and assemble the detonator! When were happy with the fit it's time to glue it all together. Be sure to.

Use the proper PVC primer on all of the joints before we start gluing as it will help prevent leaks. Now it's time to apply the PVC cement. I like to push the parts together tightly and then twist one quarter turn. Some of the bigger fittings can be very difficult fit together and require a lot of force. So don't let the glue dry too long before mating them together. Be sure to get the alignment right on the elbows because you won't be able to adjust them later. Now, lets strip the wire back about a quarter of an inch and connect the momentary switch to.

The 9V battery snaps and the doorbell wire. I prefer to solder the joints and use heatshrink to cover them. Once finished, it should look like this. Next we mount the momentary switch through the hole we drilled earlier in the one in and a quarterinch PVC cap and then slide the wire through the five inch length of pipe. I thought the wiring needed some cleanup so I covered it with this black tubing for a super clean look! With everything assembled it's time to attach the air compressor give it a test.

Fire! I just placed a paint cap on the end and pressed the detonator. It works! I want my water balloon cannon to look awesome so I decided to paint it yellow and black. First, I painted the yellow and then taped it off carefully. Be sure to wait twenty four hours for the paint to dry completely before applying the masking tape. Once that's done we're ready to paint the black components and then gently remove the masking tape. Finally, apply pipe thread tape to all of the threaded joints before final assembly.

And that's it! It's ready to fire! Before the first firing we need to lubricate the barrel with vegetable oil. And the first shot is a success! But my second shot missed. I put this black piece of foam down the barrel and fired at a hundred and twenty psi to give you an idea of just how powerful this thing is. Easily traveling hundreds of feet into the air! Well that's it for this project! If you enjoyed this tutorial please help me out by liking and subscribing my channel.
