the boat. We will be the-”
“Rainsford we are coming for you!” said a very familiar voice, cutting off the other person.
“Who are yo-” Rainsford started. “Whitney?” Rainsford exclaimed.
“How did you know I would be over here?”
“This is where you fell off of the yacht,” Whitney replied.
“How would you guys know; you were all asleep,” Rainsford stated.
“We found out one of the crew members saw you fall out but didn’t bother to say anything.”
“Oh…” Rainsford said sadly.
“Nevermind that,” Whitney reassured, “we are on our way to save you.” Rainsford started toward the ocean.
“We need you by the ocean so we can get you, Mr. Rainsford.” said the other person.
“Okay, I’m heading there now. Talk to me when you guys get close."
Rainsford clicked off of the walkie-talkie and continued walking. He was so relieved that Whitney actually cared and came back for him.
“Someone cares,” Rainsford said smiling.
Rainsford heard the crashing of the waves on the rocks.
“Rainsford are you there?” The voice from the walkie-talkie came back.
“Yes! I’m here!”
“We are here but there is no way to get to you without hitting the rocks,” Said the man.
“Are you sure?” Rainsford said with little hope.
“Yes," the man said,"even though this is supposed to be the most durable boat out there we can not get to you, Mr. Rainsford."
Rainford came to the edge where the land ended and the water began. He could see the white boat with a cross on it.
“Stay where you are,” Rainsford ordered the boat.…
My mother tells me that dreams are crossroads, not belonging to the mortal or spirit world. In dreams, the deceased can communicate with the living, tie up loose ends. The lost souls would be able to apologize for anything done wrong, be able to say “I love you” one last time, and even tell them where a certain large stack of money is hidden. The possibilities are infinite in Crossroad. Once anything that made the spirit feel fragmented arose, they were condemned to wander Crossroad in search of…
weather out at sea is extremely dangerous, and if you are caught in the middle of the storm, it could be a fatal situation for you. This was the case for the sailors that were on their voyage to the harbor. The tankers captains made a choice to keep the ships off the coast because their visibility of the harbor…
Robert: So, in your experience, four tenths below the Commanders average, how detrimental is that to someone’s career?
Captain Rink: None whatsoever.
Robert: Would that be evidence by the fact that he actually received a promotion?
Captain Rink: Yes, absolutely.
Robert: Okay, and again, I know that you said you had no knowledge of the conversation that he alleged that you had with him, but did that conversation play at all into the statement in the FITREP or making my .4 below your…
“This court has determined regardless of supposed good intentions, Captain Wallace, you did aid in the death of Admiral Hawthorne by restraining the use of his arm,” Admiral ‘Round’ said, or so I referred to him. His girth surpassed his height so much so that he found need to stretch his arms and roll forward to reach the desk in front of him. “Therefore, you will be removed from service in the Royal Navy and no longer receive benefits associated with a member there of.”
There were a number of…
Aside from bikes and skis, the most popular item that needs to be transported with a roof rack is a boat. Kayaks, canoes, even surfboards are simply impossible to transport inside your vehicle. Compared to an alternative method of transpotation, such as a trailer, a roof rack is substantially cheaper and easier to use. The only problem: where do you start in selecting a roof water rack? What kind of boat will you carry? The first step in the selection process is determining what kind of boat…
The deepwater start is necessary to the knee boarder beginner. The following are some steps on how to do it correctly.
1) Put the strap in loosest position and make sure it is at the front of the knee pad.
2) Lie on your stomach on the board with your hands in the palms-down grip.
3) Signal the boat driver to take the speed up slow. When the board begins to plane, start to pull your knees onto the knee pad.
4) Slowly slide or crawl on your knees until they reach the normal…
summer that’s where I spend the majority of time. No one has any cares out at the lake, it’s so stress-free. I love it out there.
The last day of school everyone is anxiously waiting for that last bell to ring to let us out of school. Once it rings, we all spring out of our chairs and run to the door. No more teachers, no more rules, no more homework. Getting home, I dump my backpack out all over my floor and rummage through my drawers throwing a change of clothes and a swimsuit in that same…
small boat sailing class; a class I did not enjoy. I was not too thrilled about teaching sailing because the people you would teach would have to be engaged during instruction so they could learn how to sail properly.
Along the breezy and sandy lake shore is where I preferred to teach since I could cool down in the water. My fifth period was full of uncontrollable, inconsiderate twelve and thirteen years old who had no respect for anyone. They would never pay attention when I was showing them…
When I was in tenth grade, in my marine sciences class we had a group project, in which we had to build three boats. It was the first project of the year, and it was a big part all of our grades. The boats could only be twelve centimeters by twelve centimeters at the most and could only be comprised of the materials provided in the class, tinfoil, two popsicle sticks, straws, tape, paper, etc. Each boat had to serve a different purpose, sail straight, hold thirty dice, or survive waves, and the…
