I have created a rip in my Sevylor kayak. The rip is 3-4” along a seam in the seat/back rest (the one in the aft, which is attached to the body of the kayak), but is NOT in an inflatable section. Still, I want repair or reinforce this area, so the rip doesn’t continue to lengthen and get worse. Thanks for any suggestions.

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

A rip tide is a specific type of current associated with the swift movement of tidal water through inlets and the mouths of estuaries, embayments, and harbors.
Surfers use rip currents as a lift to a line up, this is really a good thing, which allows you to spend neither energy nor time to paddle all the way yourself. We do not recommend to use this lift if you are a beginner or not get used to the ocean.
A boat itself cannot cause a riptide, which are primarily formed by the interaction of waves and currents. The presence of a boat in the vicinity of a riptide or its actions can potentially affect water conditions and make them more challenging for swimmers.
Rip currents form when waves break near the shoreline, piling up water between the breaking waves and the beach.
Notes: Fishing rips is simply a variation of fishing submerged structure and also very similar to fly fishing for trout in a fly stream. In a rip line caused by a sand bar, schools of baitfish are getting swept by the tide over the sand bar or reef and made vulnerable by the commotion of the rip.
Channelized rip currents are the easiest to identify as they typically appear as darker, narrow gaps of water heading offshore between areas of breaking waves and whitewater. They can appear as darker paths heading out through the surf so look for gaps in the lines of breaking waves (see figure below).
Your boat creates two basic waves. A bow wave and a stern wave. Of the two, the stern wave produced by boats under 75 feet are of greatest concern. This is because when lighter weight pleasure boats are on plane, the bow is either out of the water or running high in the water and therefore not the major wave producer.
Yes, because it will eventually be too heavy to float. Bonus: If we wanted it to continue to float we would have to make the surface area of the boat larger so that the weight would be spread out more.
There are many potential ways for a boat to become damaged, both in the water and on the shore. Some common causes of boat damage while in the water may include being struck by a submerged object, running aground, or collision with another vessel.
How Do I Avoid Rip Currents? The best way to avoid getting caught in a rip current is learning to avoid them. As mentioned before, the best way to stay safe is to always swim near a lifeguard, or in areas designated safe for swimming by lifeguards.
When waves travel from deep to shallow water, they break near the shoreline and generate currents. A rip current forms when a narrow, fast-moving section of water travels in an offshore direction.
R.I.P. The abbreviation for “rest in peace,” often found on gravestones or in obituaries. From the Latin, requiescat in pace.
It`s not going to pull you underwater, it`s just going to pull you away from shore. Call and wave for help. You want to float, and you don`t want to swim back to shore against the rip current because it will just tire you out.
SEAWEED, SAND AND SEDIMENT. An easy-to-spot sign of a rip current is the sandy clouds pulling out to sea. Because of its strength, a rip can gather a lot of sand along with seaweeds, sediments, and other debris, and drag these along. RIPPLED SURFACE surrounded by smooth waters.
Rip currents have three main parts, “the Feeder Zone”, “the Neck”, and “the Head”.
All three versions of RIP fall under the category of “distance vector protocols”. Distance vector protocols (a vector contains both distance and direction), such as RIP, determine the path to remote networks using hop count as the metric.
Rip currents usually develop close to the shoreline in very shallow water around a metre deep – just where beach bathers are usually found.
Rip currents can be killers as they are the leading surf hazard for all beachgoers. They are particularly dangerous for weak or non-swimmers. Rip current speeds are typically 1-2 feet per second, but speeds as high as 8 feet per second have been measured. That is faster than an Olympic swimmer can sprint!
Beaches without breaking waves, like those on most lakes or rivers, do not have rip currents. Every beach with breaking waves, including beaches on large lakes like Lake Superior in North America, can develop rip currents.
Rip currents are narrow currents that occur in surf zones that result in water flowing away from the shore, typically near a break in a sand bar. Rip tides, on the other hand, are very strong currents that occur as the tide pulls out of an inlet.
Hint: Waves are the disturbance of the water on the ocean or sea in the form of moving swell or ridge. The regular change in the level of ocean due to the moon and sun is called Tide.
Breaking waves of any height are much more dangerous than even significantly larger ocean swells. The surface force of a breaking wave has the tendency to turn a boat broadside – the “log effect.” A breaking wave equal in height to the beam of the boat is likely to capsize a boat.
A ship which has a large weight displace a large volume (thus large weight) of water. Hence the buoyancy force acting on the ship is much greater than the weight of the ship itself, making it to float on water. Thus ship do not sink in water.
If the downward gravitational force is less than the upward buoyancy force then the object floats, otherwise it sinks. That is, if an object weighs less than the amount of water it displaces then it floats otherwise it sinks. A boat floats because it displaces water that weighs more than its own weight.

broken rudder blade on your Scupper Pro (1997 and newer). Works with
both tankwell and two hatch versions of the Pro. You will have to take
apart and re-build the rudder assembly to replace the blade. Some of
the hardware may have to be replaced if it is badly corroded. Hardware,
shock cord and lifting lines can be purchased at a hardware store, or
here at TopKayaker, some by special order. The Replacement Blade is 12

I have a Toro 616Z Zero Turn Lawn Mower. It has Turf Tires on the rear. I have two questions. #1. Does anyone know the size of the wheel for a tube? (Noticed the tire is flat last night and pumped up but it is flat again. It has a tube. #2. I’ve noticed that the mower really tends to tear up the grass when on any kind of slope or on turns. The rear tires rip the grass out by the roots. Horrible if grass is the slightest bit damp. Is this normal? Thanks
ANSWER : First the tire is leaking around the rim bead area get the tire size and go to a tire supplier and they will get you the right size tube,this leakage is normal due to the very low air pressure run in these turf tires,secondly the reason its tearing up the grass is because the tires are squatting and this creates a twisting of the sidewall of the tire and leads to the tearing action,try about 5 lbs higher air pressure and see if this helps

I have a Omron HJ113W-E pedometer and no instructions on how to use it. It was working fine and then my wife quit using it for several months. now it only has a flashing battery indacator. I checked the battery an it has 2,65 volts which i feel should be enough to power the unit. Are instruction manuels available?

13,00 euro is a rip off for an answer to above question!!!!!!!!

ANSWER : Hi – I will allow for you to forgo payment to me – I am the service tech – the company will charge you – but I will not. I understand you’re wanting an answer but the price is steep. This is what I do for a living but I will not charge you my fee this time. Like I said the site will. The unit you have is nortorious for this sort of thing. The battery should however be renewed for science sake. We will never know if the unit demanded a new battery or not if we do not put a new one in. If by chance the unit doesn’t need it or the new battery does it no good – then by all means take the new battery back. The price you pay for a new battery takes into account as part of the profit to be charged you even if you never take a battery back – ever. As for the unit – I am shocked at how many companies with just the right push or shove will give out a brand new unit in spite of age or warranty. The people that manufacture these things do have some pride in their company and will most likely send you a new one if you convince them it failed as you have convinced me. Install new batteries – if that doesn’t work – attempt to send it back to the factory for replacement – Best of it. Rice
