For an object that overhangs front or back, it must be marked with a red, yellow, or red and yellow flag or other marker if it overhangs by more than 3 feet. If transporting the load at night, you must use a red or yellow light ( non-flashing). Any marker must be attached to the very end of the projecting load.

In general, if you carry something that overhangs the vehicle, you must have a warning sign or marker on your car. The maximum overhang is 50 cm on either side and you must have it securely tide to the car. You can read more here: http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/loading-your-car-safely.html

Installation of a thwart in an old town canoe


If it is a centre thwart just bolt down through the gunwale with long bolts and large washers.

If it is a lowered kneeling thwart then use the same principle but with longer bolts to accomodate the spacer blocks you use to frop the thwart height.

Remember that you need to get your feet under the kneeling thwart so don't put it too low down or you may trap your legs in the event of a capsize.

I am looking to find a cheap second hand canoe for me, my husband and 10 and 7 year old to use on the lakes of MN. I have been offered an aluminum Grumman for 400, and I do not know if it comes with...


Hi. You will enjoy the 375 dollar fiberglass canoe, especially with all the accessaries! I don't think you could find a better price that would fulfill all your requirements. Fiberglass is easy to repair if damaged. All other surfaces are not and can become unrepairable! Fiberglass is also low maintainance but I would recommend storing it out of the sunlight. When you go for the purchase ask the previous owner if he would mind if you fill it up with water? This is one way of checking the integrity of the hull. My canoe has three seats. If you canoe has no seats sit on your lifejackets and it helps keep any supplies or you bum drier. Have fun! I'm getting ready to write some stories about my latest canoe trip.

Find the magnitude of the velocity of the canoe relative to the r


Firstly, though the answer is expressed as an angle "south" of west, the canoe will be traveling southeast, so the degree should be read south of east, not south of west. The ultimate velocity of the canoe will me 1.065 m/s.  The direction is 22 degrees south of east, or 158 degrees from West, but not 158 degrees south of west, since beyond 90 degrees south of west you have south. I used trig and I passed calculus so I'm pretty sure i'm right.

Long of the canoe


When you are sitting in the boat and the blade is totally immersed, the top grip should be about shoulder high for general and touring use. For white water and more specialized paddling, a longer paddle, especially for the stern paddler, provides more reach and leverage for maneuvering the boat.

Popular canoe material


ABS, or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, has earned a reputation among canoeists for near indestructibility. It is one of the most damage-resistant canoe materials in use today. Badly dented hulls, even those that have literally been bent around a rock, have been restored to their original shape, without cracks or leaks, by the application of heat. Canoeists have dubbed ABS craft "rubber boats" and with good reason. Since the material tends to flex slightly, it is forgiving, tending to slide over rocks, or bounce off them, with little more than a surface scratch. Some of its limitations are marginal buoyancy - it will float when capsized but just barely, so don't expect to climb into a swamped ABS canoe to await rescue, or to hand-paddle it ashore. Also, when wet, the floor of an ABS canoe is slippery, which can prove troublesome in rapids. ABS canoes require little maintenance and can be left outdoors all year - although ones with wooden gunwales and peaks should be propped to avoid ground moisture. ABS canoes also require special epoxy resins for repairs.

Gear for canoes


Here's a list of some of the other gear we would suggest: - A sturdy roof rack on your car (it will greatly reduce problems and add to your enjoyment). - Bow and stern tie-down lines - these are critical to the safe transport of your canoe when you are on the road. - A set of wheels to make getting your canoe to the water easier. - A bailer and sponge. - Padded canoe seats for longer journeys. - Dry bags to keep extra clothes and snacks protected from water coming in off your paddle, as well as from bow spray or rain.

Aluminum canoes


Well-made aluminum canoes are rugged and most dents can be punched out. They are the ultimate no-maintenance canoe. Even when left outdoors all year, neither rain nor snow affects them and they will not take on weight with age. They are rigged with flotation air tanks or foam compartments to render them unsinkable. On the downside, aluminum canoes are noisy, tend to cling to (rather than glide over) rocks, and conduct heat and cold. Most aluminum canoes carry their beam well forward and aft so that they push rather than cut through the water. This hull design, however, makes them initially more stable and increases their carrying capacity.

Which canoe to choose


For fishing, a canoe with extra stability will increase your enjoyment as well as your safety, so a wider canoe, one that is 36" or wider with a flat bottom (versus a V bottom) is a good choice.
