She’s handled rolling Pacific swells off an iron-bound California coast, taken spray over the pilothouse in the Johnstone Strait in British Columbia, and weaved through the narrow confines of the Rideau Canal. And the two Coast Guard-licensed captains have only good things to say about this boat, which is sometimes mistaken for just a “cute little tugboat.” “We can honestly say Renegade has fulfilled our expectations,” says Bob White, 75. “She has proven seaworthy, stable and comfortably safe on coastal voyages, rivers, canals and locks. She truly is our home away from home.” In 2000, the couple began looking for a salty, seafaring replacement for their Cooper 37 cruising sailboat. ...

Your Engineering Heritage: Inventors’ Responses to the Sinking of the RMS Titanic

Inventors’ Responses to the Sinking of the RMS Titanic By Robert Colburn, IEEE History Center Staff The sinking on 14-15 April 1912 of the RMS Titanic on her maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg stunned the world. Although Titanic was by no means the first ship to be sunk by an iceberg, the appalling loss of life (more than 1500 persons died) captured the world’s attention. The relatively new technology of radio was brought to public notice—both for its role in summoning rescue ships, and also because radio messages from the rescue ship Carpathia and from Titanic ’ s sister ship Olympia were listened to by radio operators on shore and relayed to the newspapers.

U.S. trade, labor data underscore sluggish economy — Yahoo News India

Latest News » By Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) — The U.S. trade deficit widened in September as imports rose to their highest level in almost a year and exports fell for a third consecutive month, suggesting the third-quarter growth estimate will probably be lowered. Other data on Thursday painted a less upbeat picture of the labor market than had been suggested by last week’s sturdy October payrolls report. First-time applications for jobless benefits fell last week, but the decline in claims for the week ended November 2 was smaller than previously reported. The reports reveal a slightly weaker path than we expected for exports and claims levels, which has modestly downgraded ...

Diving on sunken German subs off the Outer Banks for history’s sake Most people remember Pearl Harbor as the closest World War II ever came to America. But in 1942, the blue waters of the Atlantic, just off the coast of North Carolina, became a crucial and largely unrecognized theater of the Second World War. During the early months of 1942, mere miles off the coast of the Outer Banks, the Germans and the Allies engaged in a continuous and widely forgotten maritime battle, known as the Battle of the Atlantic and also as The Battle of Torpedo Junction. Now, 66 years later, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has launched a multi-year archeological project aimed at researching ...

About Lord Nelson Victory Tugs — Lord Nelson Victory Tug (LNVT)

Models 37′ Lord Nelson Victory Tug Loren Hart cites the success of the Nordic Tug 26′, which premiered at the 1980 Seattle International Boat Show, as being influential in his decision to design and build a tug himself. He believed there was a good market for a larger tug and decided on a 37′. James Backus, naval architect, credits Loren Hart with the original concept for the Victory Tug. 3 Jim’s inspiration for the yacht’s dramatic sheer lines came from New York City’s Moran Tugs of the 1950’s and 1960’s. He specifically incorporated the superstructure and raised bow which give the appearance of a working tugboat. Below the waterline, the full-displacement ...

NEARER HOME.»Nearer than when we believed.»—ROM. xiii:11.Unknown.JAS. MCGRANAHAN.1. O’er the hill the sun is setting,And the eve is drawing on;Slowly droops the gentle twilight,For another day is gone.Gone for aye, its race is over,Soon the darker shades will come;Still ’tis sweet to know at even,We are one day nearer home.Chorus.Nearer home, beautiful home, nearer home, heavenly home,Nearer to our home on high, nearer to our home on high.To the green fields and the fountains, to the green fields and the fountains,Of the land beyond the sky, beyond the sky, beyond the sky.2. One day nearer, sings the sailor,As he glides the waters o’er,While the light is softly dyingOn his distant native shore.Thus the Christian, on life’s ocean,As his light boat cuts the foam,In the evening cries with rapture,»I am one day nearer home.»3. Worn and weary, oft the pilgrimHails the setting of the sun;For the goal is one day nearer,And his journey nearly done.Thus we feel, when o’er life’s desert,Heart and sandal worn, we roam;As the twilight gathers o’er us,We are one day nearer home.4. Nearer home! yes, one day nearerTo our Father’s house on high,To the green fields and the fountainsOf the land beyond the sky.For the heavens grow brighter o’er us,And the lamps hang in the dome,And our tents are pitched still closer,For we’ve one day nearer home.By permission.No. 90.
