The guns mounted forward and aft are merely round pieces of wood with a piece of wire bent around them and forced into a hole in the deck. Some method must be evolved to keep the water out of the hull, and yet allow the propeller-shaft to revolve freely. A hole is drilled in them as shown, and a screw is placed through these to hold the rudders to the side of the craft. Oftentimes it will be possible to salvage the works of an old alarm-clock, providing the main-spring is intact.

    The perception of it being political is based largely upon the requirement to follow a formal dispute process, which many find intimidating and creates a bias to those willing to put in the effort to present their case. If the [15] shape of the boat at section 10 is desired, the line 10 in Fig. They are fashioned by using a small screw-eye and soldering a short piece of brass wire through [82] the eye. The shaft is 13 inches long and a gear-wheel 1 inch in diameter is fixed to one end of this shaft.

    This angle of the blades causes them to force water back as they cut through it when the propeller is revolving. The power machinery is of very simple construction and presents no real difficulty. This is because most boys will wish to build different sized boats, and therefore it has not been deemed advisable to dimension the boats described in this Chapter. A well-appointed cabin enclosed head, comfortable bunks, galley, chart table is a necessity for most cruisers.

If they had tacked at point B, taken their beating sailing in a headerand tacked again at point C when they were headed further, they would have come out far better in the long run.

A cubic foot of oak, however, would weigh only 54 pounds, because it has been found that it has a specific gravity of only 0. Here is a boat that is as radical as anything the sailors of the Delaware River, Sydney Harbour or Brisbane had produced at the time. This particular piece supports the fore-deck, and also carries the main-deck, as well as bracing the boat together.
