Three Ways to Capsize a Boat: An Optimist Afloat

Product description

Three Ways to Capsize a Boat is travel writing at its best, crackling with Chris Stewart’s zest for life, irresistible humor, and unerring lack of foresight.

Chris Stewart had a long and eclectic list of jobs.  From some of the most glamorous careers--he was original drummer in Genesis--to the more offbeat--a sheep shearer and circus performer--he had done it all…or almost all.  So when he is offered the chance to captain a sailboat in the Greek islands one summer, something he had never done before, he jumped at the chance, even though he’d never actually sailed before.
 
So begins the hilarious and wild adventures of Three Ways to Capsize a Boat. From setting the boat on fire not once, but several times in the Aegean Sea to his not-so-grand arrival in Spetses to meet the owners of the boat (who says it isn’t graceful to plow into the docks as a means of coming to a stop?), Stewart quickly catches the sailing bug.

By the end of the summer, as he is facing the dreary prospect of going back to sheep shearing, he jumps at the chance to be part of a crew to follow Viking Leif Eiriksson’s historic journey across the Atlantic Ocean. From coming to terms with the long, cold nights at sea and unchanging cuisine to battling intense seasickness and managing to go to the bathroom during a massive storm (a lot harder than you’d think!), Stewart keeps his good humor, but learns, in the end, that perhaps the best things in life are worth coming ashore for.

www.cbnweek.com/v/article?id=6925 无人舰队,准备起航 2014-04-21 | 第一财经周刊作者 :黄俊杰 | 图 :金迪 41 0 0 在MH370航班漫长的搜寻过程中,卫星和飞机找到的疑似残骸一次次被发现只是常年漂浮的塑料和金属。而4年前墨西哥湾泄露的石油至今没有被清理干净,依然不断伤害着周遭海豚和海龟的生存空间。 这时,如果有一支由数百艘小船组成的无人舰队,一天24小时、一年365天不间断地清理着海上的原油和垃圾,情况或许就会不同。 这正是Protei的目标。 Protei是一款不需要额外动力,完全依靠清洁能源就能在海上长期工作的小型无人船。在4月6日举办的深圳制汇节(Maker Faire)上,Protei创始人凯撒·原田(Cesar Harada)的小团队也带着最新的Protei原型机“乐天派”号(Optimist)前来参展。 仅两米长的“乐天派”看起来有点像大号的玩具帆船,船身一节一节,有如鱼骨一般——独特的船身是Protei与其他船只最大的不同,在水中转向时,船身也会随之弯曲,就像鱼一样。 如此设计并不是为了美观,而是为了拥有更持久的续航能力。 泄露的原油和海上飘荡的垃圾都会随洋流而流动,最有效的处理方法是让清洁用的船拖着长条型的清理设备逆流而上,沿“之”字航行。 帆船在逆流转向时会损失很多动力,必须有辅助动力才能继续维持航行方向。但原田同时希望Protei能够仅仅依靠风和阳光等清洁能源,便能长时间在海上进行工作。所以,变形船身是实现这一目标的关键。 “变形的船身就好像现代飞机的机翼。当飞机起飞或者降落时,你会看到机翼的很多部分会进行调整,形成多个平面,这样可以更有效地利用气流。”原田对《第一财经周刊》介绍说。相比之下,固定船身在他看来,就相当于60年前飞机机翼的设计水平了。 原田本是麻省理工学院的一位研究人员,从事海洋清洁方面的研究。2010年墨西哥湾石油泄露以后,他觉得自己参与的研究项目太过前瞻,无法迅速解决现实问题,而且学校申请了很多专利,也对技术的实际应用与普及形成一定阻碍。因此,原田决定辞去工作,创立Protei无人船项目。...
