The 3 Main Types of Marine GPS Combination Electronics

Marine Diesel Price A group of joined researchers from Mitsubishi and University of Marine Science and Technology released a proposal calling for massive seaweed / algae cultivation. This pilot projects occupy 10.000 kilometers square for seaweed farm. The researchers estimate that the farm will produce about 20 million kiloliters (5.3 billion gallons) of bioethanol per year. This is equal to one third of Japanese consumption on fuel in a year.Seaweed / Algae has long been considered as an alternative option to produce bio fuel. Most biofuel today is produced from corn and sugar cane. According to the proposal the seaweed to be grown in the farm is from sargasso seaweed (hondawara). This type of seaweed can grow faster.There will be floating bioreactors, these are special facilities that use enzyme to break down seaweed down into sugars. They would then prepared seaweed for conversion into ethanol. The conversion will be done at sea and then transported to land by tankers. There are two main components of seaweed / algae that rise interest in producing bioethanol. They are Fucoidan and Alginic Acid. Scientists have already discovered enzyme to break down Fucoidan and now they are currently looking for enzyme to break down alginic acid.The researchers claim that in addition to producing bio fuel. The seaweed / algae farm will also serve a noble duty by cleaning the Sea of Japan. The seaweed would work to remove some of the excess nutrient salts that flow into the sea from the surrounding land massesMore recent news stated that UK Researchers are also digging this new possibility. Professor Mike Cowling, science and research manager at the Crown Estate, said: "Given Scotland's rugged western coastline and relatively clean seas, it is sensible to examine the farming of seaweeds and sustainable harvesting of natural supplies as a source of energy."He said more research was needed to establish the practicalities but added that seaweed could play an "important role" in green energy.Now What are The Advantages of Seaweed If Compared to Other Bio Fuel Products such as Corn, Sugar Cane, and Palm Oil?* Seaweed doesn't need soil and fresh water as other agricultural biofuel producer crops desperately do. Many criticize that the cultivation of massive agricultural crops to produce bio fuel require very large acres of land, that makes it inefficient and potentially harm the environment. * Food price will rise as the effect of more land is taken away to produce biofuel.* Algae / Seaweed grows 10 times faster than sugar cane. It is the fastest growing crop.* According to researchers at the Center for Biorefining of the University of Minnesota, they estimate that Algae / Seaweed produce 5000 gallons of bio fuel per acre. As comparisons, corn yields 18 gallons, soybeans produce 48 gallons and palm trees yield 635 gallons per acre.References: pinktentacle.com/2007/03/seaweed-as-biofuel/ enn.com/ecosystems/article/37327 bioenergy.checkbiotech.org/news/2008-10-27/Seaweed_could_be_used_as_green_fuel_alternative/ wildshores.blogspot.com/2008/11/seaweed-as-biofuel-pros-and-cons.html

The 3 Main Types of Marine GPS Combination Electronics

Petroleum Delivery Companies What are we doing? Where are fuel costs heading? $5.00 a gallon, $7.00 a gallon? Where will it end. All boaters are praying, "soon, I hope". As a liveaboard/cruiser, this money pit that we all like to refer to as our yacht, is actually my home. I need to spend extra time and money, of course, to maintain it. As a cruising vessel, (every boat in some way fits into that category), Maintenance is key to longevity and general usability. I tend to go overboard with my maintenance from time to time, you know. I like to upgrade electronics packages to the latest and greatest stuff around.I own a Gulfstar 44Aux sailboat and when I purchased it, it had a Garmin GPSMap 162 Gps/chartplotter. I took delivery of the boat and sailed it to her home in Miami, Florida and the chartplotter performed very well. It has a 4" diagonal black/white and grey scale screen and it re-writes charts pretty slowly, but it re-writes none the less. I said, "Time to upgrade to a newer, bigger, in color, daylight readable with all the gadgets Chartplotter. I didn't need to do it but that was on my first day with the boat. You get the picture. Well, if fuel prices were what they were a couple of years ago, the cost of the chartplotter wouldn't have been such a stretch. Even for the people who "have" money to throw away, it makes no sense to spend unnecessary cash on fancy gadgets. Why did I do it? (Other than the obvious--I wanted to). I have learned as a cruiser that all boat owners need to get a frugal streak in them. I have made myself an expert at being frugal. I buy what I want, after considerable research on the internet and at every conceivable money saving source that I can find. I may have to wait 5-7 days for shipping, or I might have to bid on an item, but I always, always, always get what I'm looking for at a price that allows me to keep putting fuel in the tank and do my recreational boating. I'm a sailor and that is very important to me. I know what power boat owners are going through as well.I have several friends that own Silvertons in the 34' to 45' range and I know that filling up those tanks can really take out of the upgrade or even the very basic maintenance budgets. Frugality is an absolute necessity. That's also why I decided to go into the discount marine supplies business. I purchase name brand items from the manufacturer, have no storefront to maintain overhead on and I drop ship to my customers. They save up to 30% on everything they buy. I'll tell you up front, when I decided to go into the business, I had to look at what type of business model I wanted to follow. Would it be a Wal-Mart type model, selling brand knockoffs or would I go with something like a BJ's premise of 3-10% over cost of top selling name brand products. I decided that the BJ's approach was what I preferred and so do my customers. I am currently expanding my store from 4500 items to over 7000 items and plan on continuing the growth until I cover every type of item that a frugal captain could want in their Yacht or home. This has certainly been an exciting learning experience for me and a very helpful one to my boating family, friends and customers. So what is the future of boating in this economy? I hope that with the lessons that we can all learn, even at 57, and developing that streak of frugality, we'll all continue boating just like our dad's did?
