• Fixing Overheating Issues in Rodes and Docklinesitation



    Reduce Overheating In Your Docklines and Rodes

    But what percentage of a rope’s breaking durability is considered an “extreme” weight? And exactly how does the regularity of the load cycling impact heat build-up? And most importantly, how can we prevent this specific intra-fiber heat buildup from happening?

    In the end, our testers discovered that although intra-fiber friction is actually a genuine risk, the more problematic threat is our apparent adversary– exterior friction caused by rubbing on chocks, anchor rollers, docks, fairleads etc. And the risk of interior friction on smaller sized diameter ropes is much less likely than it is on bigger diameter ropes.

    Ropes greater than one-inch in diameter are subject to interior heating if packed past their safe working limit or loaded at high frequency. Ground anchor and sea anchor rodes are cycled at low frequency; though the core will see some increase in temperature level, it will definitely not progress to the point of compromising the rope unless the rope is packed past the 10:1 safe working limitation. If the anchor rode is sized right, it will never be over-strained or overheated.

    Might interior friction have caused Golden Globe racer Susan Goodall’s drogue to part, a breakdown that added to her boat’s dismasting? Even though external friction is the most likely reason for failing in drogue or sea anchor lines, the loads enforced on a sea anchor rode can produce sufficient internal heat to trigger malfunction.

    Dock lines are more serious issue. If the boat is subjected to short-period chop from the side, the regularity can be high and the pressure can exceed the 10:1 safe functioning limitation. Core temperature levels above the boiling point are feasible in dry conditions, and even with spray to cool the rope there certainly might be significant deterioration. Add to this significant frictional heating at connection points and special safety measures are required.

    So what can a sailor do? Our specialists developed five easy measures to take to prevent heat build up in your dock lines and rode.

    – Anti-chafe equipment type. Stay clear of waterproof materials. Select materials that are inherently slippery, such as nylon webbing.

    – Anti-chafe gear positioning. Stay clear of sharp turns because these increase friction. Often poor cleat positioning can easily lead to extreme bends at a hawse hole or chock. Our evaluation of deck cleats on typical production boatsrevealed a variety of major problems.

    – Reduce the run. Reducing the distance in between the anchor point and the friction point will decrease the back-and-forth movement that will escalate friction. Polyester or Dyneema pendants through the chock will combat friction here.

    – Prevent slack lines and bouncing. In a recent article on storm preparation we discussed motion control. A boat that is bouncing on its lines escalates chafe, frictional heating, and forces.

    – Choose the appropriate size. When truly serious weather is actually expected, seafarers like to double up lines and set up oversize lines, but the average watercraft does not possess cleats big enough to accommodate the required dock line size. We have taken to setting up strong Dyneema loops over the cleats in order to enable attaching multiple large lines to a standard cleat.

  • Great Ways to Prop Your Outboards

    Propping Outboards

    Check Out These Excellent Methods of Propping Your Outboards

    Raritan Engineering Company your marine sanitation device specialists would like to share with you these topics we thought would be of interest to you this month regarding great ways to prop your outboards.

    As triple- and quadruple-outboard-powered boats increase in popularity, choosing the best mix of propellers for such propulsion systems has grown in complexity. That’s because center engines sometimes require different propping than outside motors. 

    Twin outboard setups use the same type and size of propeller for each engine, but in counter-rotating pairs. Triples and quads also employ counter-rotation (triples usually have a right-hand prop in the center), but it gets trickier from there.

    Shop with us at Raritan Engineering for your required marine sanitation devices. We only have the best!

    With triples and quads, the drives for center engines on deep-Vs sit deeper in the water than do the outer engines. This allows all propellers to clear the bottom of the hull to maximize performance.  

    “This means that middle engines might need help in getting a better bite,” Landry says. “The outer propellers tend to get a cleaner stream of water than do center props, which can sometimes have a harder time ­grabbing water.”

    To get an idea of how propellers might vary, we looked at Boating’s test of the Everglades 435 CC with quad Yamaha 350 hp V-8 outboards. All props were Yamaha Saltwater Series XL three-blade stainless steel, but the outside wheels carried a 19-inch pitch, while the center two were 21-inch pitch.

    For an example of variable propping with triple outboards, we looked at our test of the Wellcraft 352 Fisherman powered by three Mercury 400 hp 400R Verados swinging Merc Revolution 4 stainless-steel four-blade props. 

    So don’t forget these great tips when propping your outboards. 1) Twin outboard setups use the same type and size of propeller for each engine, but in counter-rotating pairs;  2) triples and quads also employ counter-rotation (triples usually have a right-hand prop in the center);  and 3) with triples and quads, the drives for center engines on deep-Vs sit deeper in the water than do the outer engines.

    Man plans to solve homeless problem by turning cruise ship into homes

    It’s an undeniable fact that there are too many homeless souls spending each night sleeping on the streets instead of in a bed.

    Even worse, homelessness doesn’t just affect young, healthy people in the U.S., but is a scourge that can blight the old, the sick and the weak, too.

    What’s more, it seems like it’s only getting worse for those who have it tough, while the rich continue to get richer.

    Sadly, the United States isn’t the only country where homelessness – and difficulty getting affordable housing – is a problem. In many countries around the world, governments are failing to provide adequate housing, and so the numbers continue to rise.

    Contractor Ken Capron plans to buy an old cruise ship that’s no longer in use. His aim is to rebuild the entire vessel, thus transforming it into affordable apartments stationed in the city’s port.

    “We’re looking at four groups that need housing: the homeless, the low-income, the workers and the immigrants. They also need vocational training and we would offer them on board,” Ken Capron said in an interview with WMTW.

    The mayor of Portland’s response

    According to reports, the mayor of the city is open to the well thought out proposal.

    In Capron’s vision, the ship would be converted into five different floors, with at least one hundred apartments offered on each.

    “I have no idea if it’s the craziest idea I’ve ever heard or the most brilliant idea I’ve ever heard,” said Mayor Ethan Strimling, according to NECN, via the Miami Herald.

    Ken has applied for an independent investigation to discern whether the project is feasible. If given the green light, he’s going to put his plan into practise, but is set to present his idea to the City Committee regardless.

    The estimated cost of transforming the cruise ship, meanwhile, sits somewhere in the region of between $5 million and $10 million.

  • Get Better Hand Grips For Your Boat


    Drew Frye

    The Best Hand Grips for Summer and Winter

    The very first project dealt with on my new-to-me catamaran a decade ago was to wrap the helm wheel with line. Our delivery journey home took place in late December on the Chesapeake Bay, and I didn’t want to invest the following three days with an icy stainless steel wheel drawing all of the warmth from my fingers. Rather, I invested a beneficial hour before dinner covering the wheel with line.

    I likewise covered some railings bordering the cockpit and on-deck; in these kinds of cases, it’s a safety concern. Cold, wet stainless is a headache and I’ve got old, worn out hands. If you look around at Venture Clipper Around the World Race boats you’ll discover wrappings on pulpits and around the helm.

    I’ve held wheels wrapped with firm line in intricate coach whipping styles. Although beautiful to behold, the knots were actually irritating and the therapy utilized to protect the line (a great deal of work goes into a attractive job) made the surface area tough and hostile. Your marine ice makers experts talk about how I selected a much easier method, simply an ordinary wrap with 1/4-inch nylon/polyester blend line.

    – Start by taping about two inches of line to the wheel in the direction you will certainly be wrapping. This will certainly be locked by the wrapping over it. Enable this tail to unlay, reducing the lump. Athletic tape is best– it conforms well, is more non-slip than electrical or rigging tape, and will not creep over time in the warmth as other tapes will.

    – Wrap freely about five turns at a time, stopping briefly to work the turns toward the start, snugging lightly. Proceed, pausing every 5 turns, until the section between spokes is actually complete.

    – Using a rubber-faced glove, twist the line tight, turning and pushing in the direction of the start, to ensure that the line is tight against itself. Repeat this several times, until the line is very tight.

    – On a wheel, begin next to the king spoke and end by proceeding one turn past the spoke and then wrapping part way down the spoke.

    – Terminate by wrapping the last inch along with rigging tape. Your marine ice makers suppliers talk about how this may likewise be finished with a turk’s head knot, if you like decoration.

    We’ve likewise used this particular exact same treatment to stainless railings, above as well as below decks. The wrapping boosts the diameter to a much safer handful; most boat railings are a spindly 3/4-inch or 1-inch polished stainless. OSHA, on the other hand, requires hand rails be 1 1/2-inch. The typical baseball bat, hockey stick or hammer is about 1 1/4-inch, often plumped with tape past that. Why would we approve anything a lot less secure on a wet and wildly pitching deck?

    A line covering lasts about 10-15 years underneath the dodger, or around 8 years outdoors. It will become discolored with whatever is on your hands; an occasional soak and scrub with laundry detergent helps. Colored line is also an option. However to me comfort and safety rank far above shining white. Eventually, it’s a minor project to refresh.
