The above shark was the man eater that was filmed in the extremely popular documentary Jaws which was directed by the well known animal rights activist, Steven Speilberg. And if you ever go to a beach wearing a bikini and have pretty damn fine rack you better watch out for the Tiger Shark. You can make the body of the boat with a recycled, cut-up milk or juice carton, which is easy to cut, water-proof and paintable (although mine are not painted here). Gabriel from California sent me this wonderful picture of his daughter and her science fair project about pop pop boats.
Here is an interesting article that describes pulsating heat pipes (PHP) which incorporate the same principles that make pop pop boats work. One of the most fearsome of all the artillery pieces developed during the war is the 17,120 pound mortar gun called the Dictator. Much lighter artillery pieces, like the cannons pictured, also caused incredible destruction. Although the invention of the airplane is still some forty years away, the Civil War is fought from the air as well as the land and sea.
Of all the new developments of the first half of the 1800s, it is the railroad that most changed Americansa€™ way of life. As the war dragged on to third year, the abundance of resources produced in the North begins to take its toll.
I am helping with a party for a new crop of Otters, entering elementary school in the fall. Menlo Park resident Alexis Murphy’s website is Jacolyn Murphy, where she posts a creative inspiration almost every day. You're all so kind: I'm wonderfully fortunate to be associated with you and I'll gladly share my photo with you! The Eastport Nesting Dinghy is making all the cruisers round here dreamy eyed with envy as I cruise by with my feet up on the lee rail and my hat tipped forward. I recently completed construction of the Eastport Pram on which I took delivery at the end of April and am very satisfied with the end result.
The end result is a lovely small craft which elicts a lot more comments than a rubber dinghy. I am a very satisfied CLC customer - I appreciate the well crafted kit and clear instruction manual. I find the Northeaster Dory a spritely joy under oars and a safe, easily-controlled sailboat.
Stitch-and-Glue Night Heron on its maiden voyage from Crownsville Dock, on canal C-14 in Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale (about a half mile from where the cruise ships dock). I Built a Chesapeake 18 back in 2010 and have been meaning to pass along the photos for some time. Thought you might like to see the Wood Duck 12 Hybrid my husband built with our 14-year-old son this winter.
I bought the Passagemaker Take-Apart because of a romantic notion of building a boat and teaching myself to sail it. This past Memorial Day weekend, five guys in four kayaks paddled 70 miles down the Delaware River from New Castle to Lewes. I just returned from what I can only describe as a trip of a lifetime, sailing from Valdez, AK to Whittier, AK.
I have built a Shearwater Sport from plans, starting in 2012 and working on it only during winter.
Built from a Kit, Pocketship "Carlyn J" ghosts along on Somers Bay, Flathead Lake, Northwest Montana. I took this picture of our Chester Yawl this past September at dawn at anchor in Princess Bay, on Portland Island in the beautiful Gulf Islands of British Columbia, Canada. Built my Eastport Pram from plans this year as a project to kill time before sailing season.
The Petrel is a thoroughbred sea kayak which handles beautifully and I cannot wait to get it into rough water! I built this from a CLC kit as a tender for our 30’ sloop, moored at Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle.
Nested, it fits on the cabin top of our sailboat as if it was made for it (with a minor reshape of the transom top profile).
The boat rows well (our preference), but for longer explorations the 2HP Honda is well suited. Here are a couple of photos of the Wood Duck Double that my daughter Cristina and I built as a father-daughter project.
I completed my Shearwater Sport, which I built in Eric Shade's class at The Wooden Boat School.
The kit was absolutely exceptional with all the pieces fitting together nicely and most of the holes predrilled. Wanting to differ from the Hawaiin theme, I built this with old wooden Chris Crafts in mind. The Night Heron Stitch-and-Glue was the perfect size for a 10-day paddle around the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. I have been rowing and sailing my Northeaster Dory for almost two months now and I love this boat.
I'm very pleased with the construction & performance of the Shearwater 17 kayak - handled great and carried all my gear.
With a lot of advice from everyone at CLC and the whole family chipping in, the boat came together wonderfully.


Thanks again to everyone at CLC and a special thinks to the guy on the phone who helped design the seats, Joey, I think, but all the other "guys on the phone" were very helpful as well. Thanks immensely, CLC, for such a rewarding project that will provide me with ongoing enjoyment for years to come. Started building my Chesapeake 17 in Holland, but moved to Scotland before I could launch the kayak.
A great thank you to you and your team for your assistance, patience and help so our dream came true. The build was both challenging as well very satisfying, already thinking about another building project.
The ammunition used by rifles was the same diameter as the barrel in order for the bullet to engage the groves of the rifled barrel.
Built to fire a shell weighing 200 pounds, the gun was so heavy that it had to be transported along a railway track. Efficient and easily movable, they become a major weapon in almost every land battle of the war.
The conflict between the states marks the first time that this extraordinary invention is put to use during wartime. Men, flew in huge observation balloons to spy on enemy troop movements and create battle strategies.
While three years of fighting have seriously diminished Confederate supplies, ranging from shoes and uniforms to guns and ammunition, Northern factories continue to produce enormous quantities of arms and munitions. They were a fun treat for me as a kid, my husband gobbled them down during the HOT summers of his childhood in Arizona, and our local elementary school mascot is Ollie the Otter so they are at every event! We used wooden boat sets, decorated with the appropriate colored sail, and then cut their images right off the box! We started our two 12-6 Kaholos in the middle of June and finished them in time for our annual family trip! I added some custom work including a day hatch, inking of the hatch covers, and a few more things. Your plans and instructions for the Wood Duck Hybrid 12 were excellent and it was so much fun to build. Well, it's now May and I STILL don't have a nice picture, though not for lack of trying. On Friday, we stopped for a long break and as the tide came in, I had to pull my Arctic Hawk above the high tide line. Great support from your team and the builders forum made it possible for a first time builder. Instructions were easy to follow, tech support via phone and in the shop was informative and collaborative.
We made every mistake in the book while building her (and probably came up with a few new ones of our own!), but the great design of the kayak allowed us to still turn-out a great-looking, sturdy, sea-worthy kayak that the whole family can enjoy. This was just in time for yesterday's 21 kayak and canoe flotilla down the Connecticut River. It is surprisingly stable and rowers, both novice and expert, have been zooming happily up and down the river. Everyone who has seen it, including the inspector from the Massachusetts Environmental Police, was impressed with the beauty, strength, and utility of the design.
My friend Bob and I started work on the boat during the last week of July 2013 and finished this month. It's a very versatile design that rows well (although you are moving a lot of boat through the water) and sails great. We are already planning another CLC boat build - likely a Mill Creek hybrid with outriggers and a sail. In either case the engine is the same, made from a cut-up aluminum soft drink can and drinking straws. You can see other people's projects (and add yours if you send a picture) in the GALLERY OF POP POP BOATS. With the musket rifle, soldiers could aim their weapons at a target a fair distance away (up to half a mile) and actually have a chance of hitting it. Towards the war, it would be used effectively by Union forces during the siege of Petersburg, Virginia, where it would shoot its enormous shells over 2.7 miles into the city. Wherever the troops move, their telegraph corps erected the poles and strings the lines that make communications within an army faster and easier than ever before. Both sides produced ironclad ships, but the Northa€™s greater ship building factories allowed the Union to construct far more iron-plated vessels than the Confederacy.
Throughout the war, the Northern railroad system plays a very important role in moving around troops and weapons with speed and efficiency. My wife's blue board and my 13-year-old niece's yellow board cruised as smooth as glass, and they both did a ton of stitching, gluing, glassing and sanding to get them ready!
He was an avid cyclist but was hit by a car last year while cycling and got injured pretty badly. On the 40-minute drive from home to the marina for sea trials, 3 random strangers in traffic commented on the sweet boat in the back of my truck.
We took our kayak out to the canals in South Bethany Beach in Delaware and to the nearby Assawoman Bay. The Environmental Police inspector requested CLC contact info and expressed an interest in building his own boat. I forgot to send these Last year but I just wanted to say you have a great company with great customer service.


Your tech support was outstanding as well as comforting, the hand holding was appreciated. Throughout the war, the Northa€™s blockade strategy will be helped by these new ships that were very hard to sink. My father-in-law sprayed the last coat of paint Saturday and we loaded them on the trailer to check in on Monday!
I can hardly think of anything that is as rewarding as building and paddling your own little boat!
I followed your manual and when I had questions the support team was there to fill in the blanks. After 30 years of building and repair of big boats I finally get to build what I always wanted to. It's light enough for two people to carry it a short distance up a beach -- a great plus for camp-cruisers and beachgoers.
Something that's so important, especially when a lot of your customer are novice builders like myself. Since the minie ball was smaller than the diameter of the barrel, it could be loaded quickly by dropping the bullet down the barrel.
Of course everyone commenting on the beauty of the CLC boat makes it even more enjoyable! I confess to more than once putting two adults, a kid, and two small dogs in the kayak's large cockpit during some of our frequent trips around the bay. Plus it is beautiful and I get compliments on it wherever I go.I'm confident in its seaworthiness and will be taking it up to Maine for a weeklong cruise in August.Thanks for the great design and the very well-engineered kit! The ball was round, and so was the barrel, so the ball did not come out of the barrel of the musket very straight. The ironclads were now able to fire in any direction, becoming very effective fighting machines. We hope to be able to upgrade the boat to include the sailing rig soon, as we spend much of our summers on the water. The Arctic Hawk held all my gear (food, water, clothes, tent, sleeping bag, etc.) for the three-day, two-night trip. They kill maybe five to eight people around the world a year, but we kill millions of them every year. Non manca il riscaldamento grazie ad una stufa a legna capace di riscaldare l’intera casetta in breve tempo. A musket rifle differed from a musket in that its barrel was rifled, which meant that it had grooves cut into the interior wall of the barrel which would cause the bullet to spin as it left the barrel.
The gases, formed by the burning of powder once the firearm was fired, expanded the base of the bullet so that it engaged the rifling in the barrel.
I, personally, hate websites like this, joke or not, because they try and point the finger towards sharks that are only doing what sharks do, survive in a very hard environment.
The spinning of the bullet made the bullet come out of the barrel faster and much straighter. Heaters were used in a barn to try to keep the temperature stable and above fifty degrees.
It is true that some sharks love to prey on younger seals because they are usually the unexperienced ones that are easier to catch for them, but if a surfer is floating at the top of the water, the shark may be fooled into thinking they are a seal.
Also, the attacks are so brutual because, unfortunately for the victims, the sharks taste buds aren't on their tongues, basihyals, but on the back of their mouths. With this being said, sharks will take an exploratory bite to see if the victim is a possible food source or not, and they have to literally almost swallow in order to do so.
One of the most aggressive sharks is the bull shark and this is because the male bull shark literally has the highest testosterone levels than any other animal on land or under water. The top three sharks that have done most of the recorded shark attacks are the bulls, great whites, and the tiger sharks. Downsizing, anche in California la tendenza ora e vivere in case sempre piu piccole Le 10 mini-case piu carine del momento!
Not saying other sharks haven't attacked anyone, but these three just hold the most attacks.
Bulls, as said before, are highly aggressive, so it is possible that they attack because they feel as if their territory is being trespassed. In fact, their main source of food are seals, so they may be tricked into attacking people. Tires, other sharks, fish, stingrays, sea snakes, lisence plates, seals, squids, sea turtles, human limbs, boat parts, other animal parts, ect. Additionally, unlike great whites, tigers are most likely not going to let go after they bite. They are thought not to have exploratory bites because they do eat anything they want to, and they use their size to their advantage. They typically only get around 14ft, but some of the larger tiger sharks have been known to reach about 20-25ft in length making them one of the largest sharks in the world. Really, for anyone trying to seriously look for REAL information on sharks or how to avoid being attacked by one, research them a bit.
