For aquatic activities enthusiasts, boats are a wonderful thing to have. Whether you love fishing, skiing, canoeing, kayaking or just cruising, having your own boat puts you in charge of where and when you have fun on the water. The problem is, of course, that boats can be very expensive. However, if you have some carpentry skills, some free time and love working with your hands, you can save money by building a boat yourself! 

The Internet is a great resource for boat plans. Thousands can be found on the Internet and many of them are free. Whether you are interested in building a canoe, motorboat, sail boat or a small boat, free designs for them can be found on the Internet. There are even plans that can show you how to build a rowboat in eight hours! 

Along with boat-building plans, the Internet is also a great resource for learning all other aspects of boat building, including which glues to use and which materials work best for which boats. You can even find a sail calculator, which finds dimensions for the sailing rigs of small boats, and videos of people building boats so you can see for yourself exactly how they’ve done it, step by step. 

As for what to use, there is a variety of materials you may construct your boat from. Plywood is very popular; even experienced boat builders often construct their boats out of plywood, since it is the cheapest material for building boats with. Several other materials--everything from plywood to PVC pipe and scrap wood—may also be used. The development of new resin systems with various resin curing times and ability to be used as fillers or glue have also made it easier to build boats. Carbon fiber and other high-end cloths have easy handling characteristics, which also lends to easier boat-building. 

You can learn about all of these aspects of boat building on the Internet. Naturally, you can also order books on the subject from the Internet. Even if you’ve never tried building a boat of any kind before, there are books out there for beginners. So, there you have it. If you would rather try challenging yourself and experiencing the pride and satisfaction of taking to the water in a boat you made with your own hands, some quality time spent surfing the ‘net can get you well on your way!

Easy Techniques To Improve Battery Life!

All batteries will fail at some point, when they have been in use for longer periods of time. But premature battery failure is one of the main frustrations people face. 

Common thinking is that turning devices off extends battery life, but what happens is the opposite. Devices consume more power when they are starting up, so turning them off is not such a good idea if they are going to be switched on frequently. 

Cars and Other Automobiles

It is important to protect the car battery from high under the hood temperatures with the use of a case or a heat shield. The battery life can be extended by keeping the battery charged at all times. Electrolyte levels will have to be checked frequently during the hot months. A recent study revealed that relocating the battery outside the engine compartment has increased its life by almost eight months. Car manufacturers are relocating the starting battery to the passenger compartment or the trunk to avoid under the hood temperatures. It also helps to use wet batteries vented to the outside or cells that do not produce gas when recharged. Based on the driving of each individual, some batteries are undercharged and this leads to sulfation, where lead sulfate gets accumulated, reducing the battery capacity. An external battery can be used for charging. 

For any battery, the most important factor to consider is the temperature. Ensuring they are not exposed to too much heat can extend the life of a battery. It is common sense that high temperatures lead to faster chemical reactions. They need to be watered more often with only deionized or demineralized water. However, rain water is a good substitute in an emergency. In addition to the temperature, a reduction in the number of discharge/charge cycles significantly improves battery service life. In extremely cold climates, the car battery needs to be continuously kept fully charged when not in use. 

Portable Electronic Devices

Battery life can be increased for iPods, cell phones, laptops etc. by lowering the brightness when not necessary. For example, when using these devices in a dark room, it is not necessary to set the brightness to 100%. The brightness can be lowered enough so that the screen can be seen without exerting any strain on the eyes can be done. The amount of time the backlight stays on can also be decreased. For iPods it doesn’t have to stay on for 10 seconds, 2 seconds should be good enough. Laptops can be set in hibernate mode when not in use.

One most important point that not many people are aware of is that turning down the volume increases battery life. Use headphones that are louder and leave the volume at 50%. 

Background applications are power hungry monsters. Stop everything that is not being used. Defragmenting the hard drive once in a while helps decrease file scatter on the hard drive and uses up less power. Send the computer into standby mode after a certain period of inactivity as it conserves battery. Although, standby resume also uses some power but not as much as starting up. Interestingly, leaving a CD or DVD in the drive can decrease battery life, as it hogs power whenever the drive spins up.

In Wi-Fi Applications

Battery life in Wi-Fi apps can be prolonged by either increasing battery capacity or reducing Wi-Fi product power consumption and through control methods. It is easy to increase battery capacity; however, due to technological limits, it may lead to an increase in cost and size of the battery. That brings us to the option of reducing power consumption, which can be done by prolonging the standby time and shortening the time of the active cycle. You can also turn off the WiFi on the iPod when not in use as it consumes a large amount of life.

These techniques of low power consumption can improve battery life dramatically. Most of them are common sense usage techniques and can easily be made part of our daily lives.

Nikola Tesla SecretThe  concept of free energy from resources, is hardly a recent innovation or development. Believe it or not, a device to harness free energy was developed more than a century ago. The inventor was none other than Nicole Tesla, considered by many as the father of electricity. In 1899, at Shoreham, Long Island, Tesla constructed a huge magnifying transmitter, a device that could convert radiant energy always present in the atmosphere to electrical energy. However, his revolutionary invention did not receive the publicity it deserved, and remains in obscurity even today, because of several reasons.

For the funding of his huge project, Tesla needed the help of an investor, J. P. Morgan. Tesla tried to keep the entire implication of his device from his investor, but in the end was forced to reveal the full possibilities of the magnifying transmitter. Instead of being elated by this invention, the investor feared the huge downward impact it would have on electrical companies, and refused further funding of the project. He even went to the extent of lobbying other investors to prevent them lending money to Tesla
Tesla’s laboratory was burned to the ground, though there was no evidence leading to the investor for this act. And eventually, Tesla’s dream of ‘Free energy for All’ suffered a very premature end.

 Or did it? True enough, the magnifying transmitter did not receive the expected interest and popularity. People, to this day, rely on hydroelectric and fuel based power plants for their electricity requirements. But Tesla’s ideas did transcend to a number of enthusiasts all over the world who kept working tirelessly on the concept of free energy over the years. And over the course of a century, several efficient and reliable equipments have been constructed that enable the conversion of energy from free resources to electrical energy.

Free Energy systems developed with deep knowledge and intense care are available. Such systems can be easily set up in your home, with very little expertise. Once set up, they provide for your energy requirements for years and years. You won’t have to pay hefty electricity bills anymore!

Generate Your Own Electricity at Your Home

What’s the thing you can’t live without. Oxygen. Umm, close. What else? Alarm clock. Quite witty, but not exactly. Electricity? BINGO! Indeed, electricity has taken such an important place in our lives that you can’t even think of living without it. Even in your dreams, you enjoy in ACs, you work on computers and take out fresh, crispy bread out of your toaster.

Electricity that we are using comes from a process that uses natural resources such as coal, natural gas and oil. Owing to this fact, electricity is non-renewable. Once you have used up electricity, you have used up the resources needed in its production. Since these resources are themselves non-renewable, it follows that electricity is non-renewable as well. The portion that you have consumed can’t be reused or replenished. You require more natural resources, to get more electricity.
Assume all natural resources have been exhausted. What will you do now? Stop using your daily appliances and technology? This is indeed equivalent to saying STOP LIVING. No, there has to be some way that is more stable and promising; a solution that doesn’t rely on resources that are depleting with every single character that is being typed.
There is a WAY
Energy By Water is the perfect solution. Its future prospects are promising and boundless. Energy By Water DOES NOT USE COAL, OIL or GAS for the production of electricity. Yes, that’s true. It doesn’t rely upon these non-renewable sources of energy that can be exhausted any time. Instead, it uses something whose birth coincides with that of the Earth itself and that will last as long as there is life; WATER.
The ubiquitous water is the best solution to an energy crisis. With oil prices rising radically, electricity produced by conventional steam turbines is getting painfully expensive. In such dark circumstances, there is only one hope of light that won’t rip off your pocket; Energy By Water. Except for one time installation charges, there is not a single buck you need to spend to get it running. All you need is a gallon or two of water, and the engine starts roaring.
