Solar Powered Boats

“In 2010, the Tûranor PlanetSolar, a 35 metre long, 26 metre wide catamaran yacht powered by 537 square metres of solar panels, was unveiled. On May 4, 2012 it completed a 60,023 kilometres (37,297 mi) circumnavigation of the Earth in Monaco after 585 days and visiting 28 different countries, without using any fossil fuel. It is so far the largest solar-powered boat ever built.”
"Most of water vessels are powered by diesel engines, with sail power and gasoline engines also remaining very popular, boats powered by electricity have been used for over 120 years. Electric boats were very popular from the 1880s until the 1920s, when the internal combustion engine took over Since the energy crises of the 1970s, interest in this quiet and potentially renewable marine energy source has been  on the rise, especially as solar cells became available, for the first time making possible motorboats with an infinite range like sailboats. The first practical solar boat was probably constructed in 1975 in England."

A Fishing Story

I just thought I would throw in a fishing story, This story is taken from http://www.fishingstories.net this is not my story but I thought I would share it anyway.

A man went fishing one day. He looked over the side of his boat and saw a snake with a frog in its mouth. feeling sorry for the frog, he reached down, gently took the frog from the snake, and set the frog free. But then he felt sorry for the snake. He looked around the boat, but he had no food. All he had was a bottle of bourbon. So he opened the bottle and gave the snake a few shots. The snake went off happy, the frog was happy, and the man was happy to have performed such good deeds. He thought everything was great until about ten minutes passed and he heard something knock against the side of the boat. With stunned disbelief, the fisherman looked down and saw the snake was back with two frogs!

Harper's Changes to E.I.?

How do you feel about the# changes that the Harper Goverment introduced to the E.I program.? They gave us very little warning about the significant changes.These changes will harm industries like farming,fishing,food processing,forestry and tourism.Seasonal workers are not lazy,we work hard,and we are not incompetent. I work seasonal digging clams,and I don't find any thing easy about my job!These changes are going to force Canadians to relocae or lose access to EI benefits.

Canadians work hard and they pay into EI,when the market is strong.When the market is'nt,EI is there for you.Thats supposed to be the deal.These changes are breaking that deal.And more changes to come called claw back.This is for peaple who find part time work while on a claim and is aimed at seasonal industries and seasonal workers.

I'm connected to other blogs and web sites to help with #personalizingmybloglife.One of the web sites I use is # www.miflter.com
This helps get  my post out to more peaple, and also gives us a broader audience to help with these issues.

We need to fight bask against the unfair changes.Please post comments on your thoughts about this matter.

To Miss Ally

I wanted to share this video on my blog to remember all the fisherman who risks there  lives every day to make an honest living on the Atlantic Ocean.My father was a Lobster fisherman, Clarence Aurthur Stanton.He and his brothers fished off Digby neck.They used to row to their lobster pots every day.The risks that the fisherman take and the money that they get for there catch hardly seems worth it.The fisherman work hard for there money and the middle man makes all the profit.So the next time you see a fisherman on the side of the road,stop and buy from him,because he earned it and he should profit from his catch.

If you Fall Through The Ice

·         Get off your snowmobile or four wheeler immediately.
·         If you fall through the ice and end up in the water, go to the edge and break your way to ice that will hold your weight. Time is of the essence.
·         Crawl on your belly and get up on ice, spreading your weight as far as possible. Use caution and grab on to anything that is close for added traction.
·         Immediately find a warm place to remove wet clothes. Go to shore and quickly building a fire. Hypothermia can set in quickly and leave you helpless. Get help as fast as you can, your life will depend how fast you take control!

Ice Fishing Safety Tips


 Outdoor activities usually take place near the ice. As much as we love to skate and fish, ice over lake water can have some serious dangers.
Guidelines when playing near or on the ice:
·         Don’t walk on ice that is less than 10 cm (4 in.) thick. Do not drive on any ice that is less than 30 cm (12 in.) thick.
·         Stay clear of ice near the inlet streams. Be cautious on river Ice can vary in thickness and strength from area to area because of temperature. Do not park near another vehicle on the ice. Ice can crack with the weight of people and vehicles keep an eye on ice and snow conditions. If the weather has been warm there may be hidden slush traps that can trap a vehicle.
·         When travelling in a vehicle on lake ice, you shood keep your seat belts off, and open your window a crack, or half unlatch your door. Keep a shovel and tow rope in your vehicle.
·         Carry waterproof matches and spikes in your pocket, also a bit of rope to help you get out of the water.
