    Dive Boat Conception deaths - more details

    It's an older boat and the CG approved it. fire is a tough thing to deal with in a wooden boat. It's like a fire in the ISS or a Sub.

    3.5hp 4 stroke Mercury

    The Tohatsu 4hp is almost identical to the Merc 3.5. I'm gonna take the carb off again. I think I know what I missed. After posting this I found a good diagram. It's hard to find shit anymore all these search engines suck. And what's the deal with Sea Foam? I see it in lots of videos. Is it a Better Carb cleaner / solvent? I'm afraid of burning it out. There is quite a difference between 3.5 and 5. I also have a 2 stroke Suzuki 5hp and it was easy to find the idle jet and clean it. I like the Suzuki but it is a short shaft and the 3.5 is a long shaft and I don't have to mix gas and deal with a smoker.

    Dive Boat Conception deaths - more details

    Thanks for that. Being that I have lived (1970) and dived (1974) in the area and been on many different boats, you have to understand that they do pack them in. Now days with the cost in Calif to do any business venture you can bet the dive business will be hurting for some time to come. But like I said. It only takes on neglectful person to screw the whole group. It's just too bad the boat did not have adequate egress. Just look at any boat. Even my 26. If a fire broke out near the cabin entry/exit, and I was down below, I would be screwed (no forehatch). Don't worry, even the Ed sends me emails warning me about being Honest, Brutally Honest some times. Nobody likes to hear the plain truth anymore., everyone wants to tiptoe through the tulips.
  4. When I raced in 2012 at SWYC the docks were fake wood. Did they replace those? Because when I was there the shit was breaking down and it got all over us disabled sailors because we had to sit on the docks, not walk. Cement docks is probably the way to go.
  5. And if you lived in So Central LA or some other areas like it, how long would you, your wife and kids last? Just saying, People are shit and many love to hate regardless of race or creed. You got to get out of the Big City life where lines are drawn. We moved a lot being in the military and we always moved in to an area surrounded by multi race neighborhoods. It was great growing up not living on the military bases. Owning a sidearm is not a bad thing. All my brothers own but I do not. I do like to shoot targets though. it is a test to hit that little round circle.

    Kind of hard to find proof of anything when it burnt to the waterline. As for a sardine packed cabin, ever go on a Ferry or Fishing trip? It only takes one asshole to fuck everyone.

    3.5hp 4 stroke Mercury

    I picked up a used 3.5hp 4 stroke Mercury and cleaned out the jets, or so I thought. I think he let is sit for too long with Calif gas in it. The engine runs fine but I must have missed the Idle Jet. Other OB's I've worked on the Idle Jet is a very small hole. Not sure where the Idle Jet is as I do not have the manual. So I was trying for a search and came along this https://www.readysetboat.com/mercury-3-and-a-half-hp-to-5hp-upgrade-kit-carburetor-and-propeller.html I'm wondering if just a new Carb and prop can make a 3.5 a 5 without any volume expansion? I still need to find the idle jet so I can see if it is plugged

    My Octopus Teacher on Netflix

    Sometimes you get cuttlefish as squit too. I've had dried Squid / Cuttlefish, it's like jerky. It is very tasty and healthier than beef jerky. Cuttlefish which are of the Squid family are supposed to be smarter then the Octopus and are the Creature in RAMA that share the craft with the humans on the long journey. RAMA is a great 4 volume story by Arthur C. Clarke: At first, only a few things are known about the celestial object that has arrived in the galaxy and has been dubbed Rama by the astronomers observing it. It is a huge cylindrical object, weighing more than ten trillion tons. And it is hurtling through the solar system at inconceivable speed. Then a space probe confirms the unthinkable: Rama is no natural object. It is, incredibly, an interstellar spacecraft. Space explorers and planet-bound scientists alike prepare for mankind's first encounter with alien intelligence. It will kindle their wildest dreams... and fan their darkest fears. For no one knows who the Ramans are or why they have come. And now the moment of rendezvous awaits - just behind a Raman airlock door. Cuttlefish or cuttles[3] are marine molluscs of the order Sepiida. They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses. Cuttlefish have a unique internal shell, the cuttlebone, which is used for control of buoyancy. Cuttlefish have large, W-shaped pupils, eight arms, and two tentacles furnished with denticulated suckers, with which they secure their prey. They generally range in size from 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 in), with the largest species, Sepia apama, reaching 50 cm (20 in) in mantle length and over 10.5 kg (23 lb) in mass.[4] Cuttlefish eat small molluscs, crabs, shrimp, fish, octopus, worms, and other cuttlefish. Their predators include dolphins, sharks, fish, seals, seabirds, and other cuttlefish. The average life expectancy of a cuttlefish is about 1–2 years. Studies are said to indicate cuttlefish to be among the most intelligent invertebrates.[5] Cuttlefish also have one of the largest brain-to-body size ratios of all invertebrates.[5] The "cuttle" in cuttlefish comes from the Old English name for the species, cudele, which may be cognate with the Old Norse koddi (cushion) and the Middle Low German Kudel (rag).[6] The Greco-Roman world valued the cuttlefish as a source of the unique brown pigment the creature releases from its siphon when it is alarmed. The word for it in both Greek and Latin, sepia, now refers to the reddish-brown color sepia in English.

    Rethinking the drug war

    The real problem is keeping drugs and alcohol out of the hands of minors until they get out of school and their brains are fully developed. I've read that the human brain is developing and growing up to 23 years old in some individuals. How is the human race going to fair in the future if we cannot protect our youth?
