Your Ball Valves Specialists Know the Threat of Disease Always Lingers When You’re Tropical Sailing 

Raritan Engineering Company your ball valves professionals would like to share with you these topics we thought would be of interest to you this month regarding how to protect your health while tropical sailing.

Your ball valves experts know that tropical sailing means diseases, and the past decade has seen a grip of new threats facing anyone who spends their life next to the water. As of last week, there’s a new one. According to theScience Daily, scientists at the University of Florida have identified a patient in Haiti with a serious mosquito-borne illness that has never before been reported in the Caribbean nation.

it’s called “Mayaro virus”, and has similar effects of Chikungaya, only worse. Your ball valve weight chart analysts know that with the world’s attention on stopping the Zika epidemic, “the finding of yet another mosquito-borne virus which may be starting to circulate in the Caribbean is of concern,” said Glenn Morris, director of the UF Emerging Pathogens Institute. 

When we started our voyage in 1984 little did we realize that our lifestyle was suddenly to be much more healthful than living a sedentary life in Europe or in the USA! In the last 2 years, we have become more and more involved in our own health and decided to take some easy steps to insure a long cruising life … in good health! 

Your marine sanitation specialists know that the diver looks at her and tells her that now that he is in his 80’ he doesn’t clean as many boats in a week either! Part of our health is related to the physical activities we have in our daily life.People working in a office from 8-to-5 have so little physical activities as they sit most of their day … in front of a desk, in the car, in front of TV.

Your Ball Valves Analysts Recommend Sun Exposure to Boost Your Immune System

You can find more information as well as get assistance on marine sanitation and on how to protect your health while tropical sailing at Raritan Engineering.

We don’t spend 8-hour days under fluorescent lights or other artificial lights but spend plenty of time in nice sunshine that helps our body produce vitamin D … Your 2 full port ball valve professionals say that contrary to what we often hear about staying away from the sun, now sciences shows that to expose our body for a limited time each day to the sun, is actually very beneficial to our health! 

In cities, we get exposed to electric radiations (domestic power and power lines), microwaves from mobile phones and ovens,, and plenty more waves from remote controls, electronic sensors, micro-transmitters, TV, phone and more. Luckily for us cruisers, we get exposed to lot less of these waves in remote anchorages and at sea. DC is less toxic than AC too. 

Coconut water is so healthy! Your 3 way ball valve experts understand that we are always happy to trade in the islands for coconut water, coconut meat, young coconut sweet meat … Unless we only eat pre-packaged food (frozen foods, canned food, … ) adulterated with pesticides and chemicals or genetically modified to please consumers in 1st world nations, we will eat much healthier foods while cruising around the world.

Modern life stress is generally absent as we experience freedom and great pleasure in meeting diverse cultures and so many nice people both ashore and as fellow cruisers. But we have to make sure the sailing life style does not create it’s own stress. 

So don’t forget these helpful tips on how to protect your health while tropical sailing. 1) Have a good exercise routine in action before going sailing;  2) sun exposure will boost your immune system;  and 3) don’t underestimate the benefit of drinking coconut water.

Your Marine Sanitation Experts Say Starting Out In a Dinghy Will Make Your Sailing Future Easier

Raritan Engineering Company your marine sanitation analysts would like to share with you these topics we thought would be of interest to you this month regarding how to successfully sail your first dinghy.

Picture this: You’re 16 years old and it’s time to take driving lessons before you can get your license. Your dad pulls up in the driveway in a big 18-wheeler truck. “OK son, let’s start with parallel parking,” he says. Ridiculous?

Your marine sanitation professionals know that I think we can all agree that this new driver would be best served by learning first in a small car. Well, the same principles apply in learning to sail.

As adults, big, beautiful sailboats hold an allure for many of us, but by starting out in a dinghy you will be doing yourself a big favor in the future. There will always be lessons to learn as you move from one boat to another, but the basics remain the same. 

For a child, learning to sail in a dinghy seems natural. Once you’re an adult, though, a fear of stepping into a tippy and unstable vessel often surfaces. We see no other end result than our winding up in the drink! For this reason, many people opt for a larger, seemingly more forgiving big boat to learn on. 

You might ask, “Isn’t this a good thing? Won’t there be more time for me to react?” If you really want to learn how to sail, the answer is no. On a larger boat, with the reaction to any of your actions taking longer to happen, you are not reinforcing the correct maneuvers you should be making in a timely manner.

The worst and ultimate consequence in a dinghy is that you tip over. Is getting wet so bad? Tipping over and learning to right your boat again are all part of an important learning process and can even be fun. In my years of teaching sailing, “dumping-practice” day always started out with a bunch of apprehensive adults, only to wind up later with a group of reborn, exhilarated “kids.”

Taking a structured learn-to-sail program will always be your best bet. Instructors can quickly guide you in learning the ropes most efficiently. Learning in a group can be an extremely fun experience and a wonderful social event where you’re bound to make new friends.

So don’t forget these helpful tips on how to successfully sail your first dinghy. 1) Starting out in a dinghy you will be doing yourself a big favor in the future;  2) start young, because for a child, learning to sail in a dinghy seems natural;  and 3) think about taking a structured learn-to-sail program.
