a lack of tradition

Some people think that the torque, or turning motion, of the engine’s propeller causes a boat to make the tight circles that threaten to overrun those who have fallen or been thrown overboard into the water.That’s not the case.Leaving aside for the moment why you might be ejected from your boat, here’s what causes the so-called “circle of death.”At the helm, you are gripping the wheel. Some event occurs that causes you to be ejected from the boat. Instinctively, you are holding on to that wheel, and so, as you go overboard, the wheel is turned, your hands being the last things in contact with the boat (unless you hit a tower, arch, outrigger or windshield on the way overboard). Now you are in the water, and most likely within…

capt. sam buchanan, u.s. mail boat captain, detroit

That was quite a feat to deliver the mail with both vessels moving at what we clocked to be about 10 mph. Was that a Home Depot bucket the freighter crew lowered to retrieve their mail?Yep. We call it “mail by the pail” because that’s what most ships’ crews have on hand to heave over the side and fetch our deliveries.Did you have to go through the U.S. Postal Service’s traditional mail-carrier training?As a contractor for the Postal Service, I went through a background check and was trained on the job on how to handle, sort, serve and cancel the mail. Each vessel has its own mail slot, and when sailors shift boats, we need to make sure their mail follows them.Have you ever accidentally dropped any mail into the…

Tap on it with a plastic mallet, listening for dull or hollow sounds.B. Look for dripping water from hull blisters.C. Use a moisture meter to determine the watercontent percentage.D.

Is there any proper way to repair a transom without gutting it and replacing the wood?A. No. If the transom is rotten, the only sure way to make it whole again is to remove all rotten wood and install a new transom.B. Yes.

WEST MARINE TRADITIONAL FLUKE ANCHORGRIP: Fluke, or Danforth, anchors are the most common type of anchor on smaller boats because they offer exceptional holding power for their weight in two of the most common bottom types: sand and mud. They also fold flat, making them easy to stow in a dedicated locker or compartment.SLIP: Flukes typically don’t bite well into rocky or grassy bottom surfaces. Flukes and stock can also foul on rocks, as can the anchor rode itself.PRICE: $130 (26 lb. galvanized); westmarine.comLEWMAR DELTA ANCHORGRIP: The nonhinged, plow-style Delta features a ballasted tip to fall unaided off bow rollers and typically sets quickly upon reaching the bottom. Like its farming namesake, a Delta’s large, singular blade can dig into the bottom for exceptional hold and easily reset itself should…
