What if you could determine the correct wire size for your project, save that information, edit, email, and export that same data? We heard from JuliaAshmun and Gayle Dunham of Dirty Dog Software (www.dirtydogsoftware.com), about the DC Wire Sizer app they developed for the iPhone and iPad, built on ABYC and NMEA standards.
We also discussed the recent news that a NOAA Coast Survey vessel has found a 19th century shipwreck of the City of Chester off the Golden Gate Bridge — again. This wreck is an interesting piece of California history, and its rediscovery points up how much technology has changed in recent years.
And we pointed listners to the ABYC award winning app "Boat Essentials" which was developed via a USCG recreational boating safety grant.
We've invited the experts from Fred's Shed to come in explain why you're favorite tips and trick for car repair may just not work quite so well in your boat. And sure, we know you want to save money, but cutting corners on the appropriate materials for your do-it-yourself boat-repair project may end up with truly costly bills down the line. Not familiar with Fred's Shed? Get yourself to an NMMA-sponsored boat show! Or take a quick look at the "sizzle reel" right here. If you have questions, send them now to email@example.com.
There was a time, we've been told, when human beings looked at large bodies of water as barriers to mobility. And then a few hearty souls—Vikings, the Great Chinese Fleet, the Polynesians, and others—figured out that large bodies of water are a way to increase mobility. Today we take transport across water for granted, and in this show we'll celebrate ferries. In fact, for a lot of people, the very phase, "It's my boat!" means "my ferry is coming and I'd better run." Ann will tell us about how a ferry makes her life in Port Townsend possible. And Barbara Jean reports on her "Day on the Bay" as San Francisco Ferry Artist-in-Residence for the Day. Since one of her favorite boats on the Bay is Adventure Cat, designed by Kurt Hughes, she'll also give us an update on Kurt's work with Ferries, particularly with EarthWise in Africa. What's your ferry story?
Co-Host Ann Avary just spent a few days at the Seattle Boat Show, so listen in to hear her report on her experience there. For at least part of time, she was in her role of "Nancy" from the Half-Way Harbor Boatyard, trying to wind the "It's My Boat" Radio Scavenger hunt, and she also tracked down some new "First Boat" stories to share on later show. This week's episode will also includes some more information from Steve Sprole about compass maintenance, and Barbara Jean will talked about the San Francisco Boat Show in McCovey Cove, especially her boat test out on the bay with Steve Shonk of Velodyne Marine, and meeting Larry Janc, one of the great guys who starting staffing the different "Fred's Shed" desks at the various NMMA Boat Shows around the country a couple of years ago.
We're talking about lifeon the water. Sailboats, Powerboats, "Superyachts< Yacht management, Cleaning, fizxing, Buying, selling, boat dealers, Show reviews and previews, What's new, How to prepare your boat for sale, Working with and without a Yacht Broker, "Certified Professional Yacht Broker", Boat Dealerships, Destinations Galore, Life on the water. Got it? Think we about cover it all.
Call in and say Hi! It's your show!
Wyomia Tyus (pronunciation: why-o-mia; is an Americanathlete, and the first person to retain the Olympic title in the 100 m. Tyus, from Tennessee State University, participated in the 1964 Summer Olympics at age 19. In the heats of the event Wilma Rudolph's world record, propelling her to a favored position for the final, where her main rival was fellow American Edith McGuire
Edith McGuire-later known as Edith McGuire Duvall, is a former Americansprinter. Born in Atlanta, McGuire ran for Tennessee State University. TSU had a very successful women's sprinting team, The Tigerbelles, in the 1960s, including triple Olympic champions Wilma Rudolph, Wyomia Tyus, and McGuire. Although McGuire's running career was short, she won six AAU titles, in three different events. Her specialty, however, was the 200 m/220 y, in which she won four of her six national titles. In 1964, she was undeafeted in her favourite event, and went to Tokyo as the main contender for the 200 m gold medal at the 1964 Summer Olympics
Martha Watson-another of the distinguished line of Tennessee State University athletes. Martha dominated the American women's long jumping scene during much of her career. In 1964, just barely out of high school, she placed second in the long jump at the U.S. Olympic trials to qualify for the American team. She made three more Olympic teams (1968-72-76) as a long jumper.
We're taking a break from holiday cheer and switching the channel to some tunes about life on the ocean, or at least just trying to get there.
When you're out on a boat, or watching boats from the shore, what music and other sounds to you like to hear? Or better yet, what are you willing to sing, hum, or otherwise perform on the air with us?
We invited Deborah Crooks and Kwame Copeland to join us, so there's more than just songs here. We also learned about how Kwame found the peace and happiness in a San Francisco Bay Folk Boat. And we got to listen to the debut of a brand new song by Deborah: "Springtime Come Early."
Then from the Carribbean, Rich Difede (Gold Coast Yachts) and friends told us about crystal clear waters and tropical weather, but declined to sing. Can't imagine why.
