I am going on a field trip to an amusement park in two days, and am bringing in my phone and wallet.I am wearing cargo shorts.These are my ideas, but any others would be appreciated.
-wear a fanny pack(no way this is happening.Im a guy)
-bring in a drawstring bag(my teacher recommended that we dont bring bags)
-give it to my friends mom who is my chaperone(might do this)
-put it into one of my velcro pockets(we argoing to a park with a lot of looping roller coasters, including a standup one.The velcro does not cover the entire width of the pocket.My dad reccomended that i do this.)
-sit on it(I do not want to crack my phones screen)
What do you guys think, and an idea would be appreciated!
as i already told you…
-put it in the velcro pocket and if you don’t feel like its secure enough then put a safety pin on each side.
-leave it with your friend’s mom
-LEAVE IT HOME.
(you don’t even need your wallet just bring your money)
I have to trailer my 2003 Electra Glide Classic, I Don’t have a choice, I can’t ride it to the destination. Where are some good tie down points my 2003 Electra Glide Classic? Some say handlebars and rear footboard brackets, Some say around the forks or crash bars, I have soft straps for the handlebars if needed, Any advice would be appreciated, Also are there good pictures somewhere on line to actually see an Elctra Glide tied down?
For the front, on each side of the triple tree, just above the forks. Bring them down at least a 45 degree angle and forward. Don’t use the handle bars, there’s too much play from the bushings, which are probably rubber if they’re still stock.
For the back, use part of the frame.
Keep all straps towards the front, even the back straps. Also, it’s best to use a wheel chock on the front tire. This will keep the bike solid with the trailer.
I need to design a remote controlled sailing boat that can carry a lot of weight but will need to sail upwind and in shallow waters
You need a moveable centerboard that you can raise and lower remotely. You will need it down while sailing upwind, half-down when crosswind, and up when downwind.
Diagram and explanation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centreboard
An alternative that might be easier to handle is leeboards http://www.diy-tris.com/2012/articles/1-leeboards-why.htm (one on each side of the boat, you lower the one on the downwind side, and raise the other)
Centreboard – you have to build a waterproof box in the middle of the boat to hold the board.
Leeboard – no box required, but an axle through the die of the boat, and it needs to be strong. You have two of them, so your remote control has to choose which one to have down according to which tack you are on.
Note that you cannot simultaneously have (a) shallow draft and (b) go upwind. If the water is so shallow that you cannot have the board down, you must approach that place from upwind.
>What sail boat design has a maximum buoyancy and minimal draft but can still sail upwind ok?<
That would be the famous Thames Sailing Barge http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_sailing_barge – capable of carrying 80 tons of cargo onto any flat beach.

I’m looking into getting a new box spring for my bed, but I don’t want to pay delivery fees, so I’m curious if it’s possible to tie down an item as bulky as a box spring for a bed on the roof of my car (a VW Jetta). Any ideas?
It’s a lot cheaper in the long run to pay the delivery fee. Even if you get that thing up there, there’s the possibility it could fly off and get damaged on your way home. Or what it it begins to rain?
