Your Boat Parts and Accessories Specialists Enlighten Us to These Amazing Facts

Stainless Marine your boat parts and accessories analysts would like to share with you these topics we thought would be of interest to you this month regarding these lesser known boating tips.

Your boat parts and accessories professionals understand that the V made by the wake of a displacement hull is always 19.47 degrees to its centerline, whether it’s from a duck or a destroyer.

Remember that old TV game show that asked if you were smarter than a fifth grader? Well, it was rigged. The kids usually won because they have an unfair advantage.

In your defense, by the time you’re 40, you’ve forgotten more than they’ve learned. But since our brains can only hold so much, some things have to be thrown overboard and replaced with more important stuff, such as what capacity of bilge pumps to install.

Your boat part and accessories experts know that there are some things that both you and a kid should know, and here’s your chance to put the brats in their places. Let’s see how you do.

Go to http://www.stainlessmarine.com/about-us/ and see how you can find more information as well as get assistance on boat parts and accessories and on these lesser known boating tips at Stainless Marine.

Ice, Ice Baby

To have some fun with global warming, let’s say you decide to cool down Nevada’s Lake Mead and airlift in one of the many ice flows that have broken free from Antarctica.

Duck, Goose

A tugboat pushes up a huge bow wave in the harbor at 14 mph while a duck paddles serenely across the pond at half a mile per hour and the Navy’s new stealthy 600-foot LOA DDG-1000 class destroyer is in hot pursuit of bad guys at 30 knots.

Well, it’s no contest at all — they’re all the same. Back in 1887, the physicist William Thomson (soon to become Lord Kelvin) went through some tortuous computations to discover that the angles made by each arm of a wake’s V to the displacement hull’s centerline are always 19.47 degrees.

Volt Revolt

You turn on the bilge pump and hear it go to work. But when most of the water is gone, you notice something odd: The faster the pump runs, the less current it draws.

Not likely. The more work a pump’s motor has to do, the slower it turns and the greater the current draw. Conversely, as the pump’s load decreases, it turns faster and draws less. But there’s something else going on called “back EMF” (electromotive force).

So don’t forget these lesser known boating tips that you can share with your family and friends. 1) The V made by the wake of a displacement hull is always 19.47 degrees to its centerline, whether it’s from a duck or a destroyer;  and 2) The more work a pump’s motor has to do, the slower it turns and the greater the current draw. Conversely, as the pump’s load decreases, it turns faster and draws less.
