Boat rent: Ways to make a beautiful home on the water

A vacation home in the waters of the lake or river, even the sea is the most exciting vacation that can take with your family or friends. Few people are lucky enough to have a House of their boat. However, for those who cannot have their own boat, there is the option to rent one of the many rental boats available in the field.

The House boat is a vessel that has all the comforts of home. Many houseboats will have separate bedrooms, depending on the size of the House boat, this bedroom can have a big room or simply bunk beds in single rooms. The Boat House is sure to have some amenities most modern houseboats, some of them even have satellite TV equipment and microwave in the kitchen.

When you go to inquire about renting a House boat, you should consider a few things. The first thing to consider is whether this ship is large enough to accommodate the number of people you will bring. Make sure there is more than enough space to sleep, that everyone has enough space to stretch your body if not the holidays will be very tight.

Make sure that the company you are going to rent the boat houses give you intensive courses on the use of the vessel, even if you have experience, will assure you that you will be equipped to handle the technical difficulties that are being in progress. On the way make sure the Houseboat has a two-way radio if you need to send messages or SOS.

Make it very clear whether the rental company must enter the fuel tank full of rent while negotiating the price and they will also be satisfied with the late delivery of a few hours. Many rental will charge extra to rent these days, even if you bring a boat with a half hour late. Therefore, predicted that the ships were to arrive at least one hour late, if not more. Ask for a copy of the lease, an insurance policy is necessary as you claim, if you ask for your own insurance in case of accidents.

During your holiday in a House boat, you have to stop on the road and get off the ship to enjoy the surroundings. There are many places along the water, where you will navigate around where you can get off and probably camp at night under a clear blue sky. That’s what makes navigation of the more exciting and memorable.

Boating in the home can be the best fun you can do with your family. Rentals are very affordable and You can go out of houseboat for a few weeks in a row and enjoy the outdoors, perhaps you could also provoke a little to increase the pleasure, and dining.

 

The deviation chart

If we are allowed to sail in zones 1 and 2 we necessarily take on board a deviation chart where values ​​are indicated deviation from our steering compass which we update every five years.

The process to draw a deviation curve is easy but requires following a rigorous methodology. Stated simply, it is to subtract the indication of direction given by a secondary compass, situated in a boat free magnetic influences, the indication of the direction given by the compass of government.

Importantly, the concept of deviation is purely magnetic, so we have to compare directions relative to magnetic north and not make the mistake of comparing the magnetic compass heading of government with the true course that indicate equipment electronic navigation as for example the GPS signal. Today may seem a bit illogical that, having electronic equipment on board that indicate real directions, we have to develop a tablet magnetic detours, but the rules is mandatory. Anyway I am particularly of the opinion that we should never forget navigate without the help of electronics that, during the voyage, may fail for a thousand reasons.

To start drawing tablet will use a compass deviation of situating Dials standing on the foredeck. To do this, we will choose a day of good visibility and calm sea. Once away from the coast at least 3 miles, will match a dial with compass delay and describe various circles, with the least possible radius and low speed. While performing circles, dialing delay must be constant. In this way we will ensure that the area is free from disturbances. Otherwise, we will choose another area and repeat the operation until we find a place free of disturbances. When we find the right place, we will take 15 courses in 15 degrees starting from a first reading heading north. (0, 15, 30, 45, 60, etc.). In each heading we write down all the differences between the two measures that mark. Registered securities may be negative or positive. When we have finished operation will only move data to the tablet detours and thus obtain the offset curve.

If the resulting curve indicates values ​​between -7 ° and + 7 will suffice to consider the data indicated by the table to perform a calculation direction. If indicated values ​​between +/- 20 ° +/- 7 ° and the compass on board must be compensated by clearing system (small screw on the back). If the curve indicates greater than +/- 20º values ​​need to change the location of the measure to remove him from the ferromagnetic effects acting on it.
