    June 7, 2018

    Spain has always brought me dazzled and I have been lucky enough to visit her several times. Spain is one of the most important countries, both tourist and historical in Europe.

    This wonderful country is located in Mediterranean Europe and consists of different geographical regions in addition to having two very famous and spectacular islands. 

    As is obvious, in Spain Spanish is spoken, although it has varieties of the language according to the zones.

    There are, as everywhere in the world, national holidays and regional celebrations that offer us different experiences, allow us to nourish ourselves from another culture and other traditions.

    The climate, as in Spain for example, varies according to the area. If you move further north you will find a much more humid and fresh climate, if you go down to the south the climate becomes much drier and warmer. It also varies a lot depending on the time of year in which you visit the country. Summer allows you to visit the beautiful beaches of Spain under a sun, which is sometimes scorching, and many more activities abroad without having to worry about clothes. While winter gives you other opportunities such as visiting the most famous areas of Spain with hardly any tourists around.

    Spain is not only a country of art and history, there is also a great variety of restaurants, bars, clubs, etc. where to distract and have fun for a while.

    Españana gastronomy is one of the main reasons why this country is so rich in tourism. It has a great tradition and innovation at the same time.

    In this country the world of fashion is also very famous; Spain has a large number of brands of clothing and footwear, in addition to a variety of car brands.

    Boat Rental in Ibiza: I have visited Spain in different ways, and what helped me the most, was to rent a boat with some friends.

    Renting a boat a few days allows you to visit all of Spain, including the islands, islands whose visit is required. Going to Spain without visiting its islands is visiting Spain in half.

    Mallorca and Ibiza are world famous.

    Its waters are almost transparent, beaches that can be called ‘paradise’, and at the same time are islands with history.

    My friends and I visit them in one day, making stops to dive into the tempting waters that surround these islands.

    In terms of history and culture, Mallorca stands out, which also offers us a very rich architectural heritage.

    Ibiza stands out for its crystal clear waters, and its paradisiacal beaches that have little to envy to more known destinations.

    The wonderful and unforgettable experience I had visiting these islands, with the freedom to stop where and when we wanted, gave us the opportunity to rent a boat; something that may not be as out of reach as it seems.

    Spain is a country tremendously rich in culture, history, art, gastronomy, beaches, monuments …

    boats, life jackets

    Approved life jackets

    June 7, 2018

    As you all know, life jackets are mandatory, sports vests are not valid, there must be one per crew member, taking into account for how many people the sport boat or sailboat is dispatched.

    Approved life jackets Habitually, it is very common, they do not wear, but if the sea gets ugly or at the first sign of possible temporary it must be put. If you sail alone, in my opinion, it is mandatory even if there is good weather and good sea. As we must use the lifeline or security. A dizziness, a drop in tension, a blow, etc. It can make us fall to the sea.

    How should it be a vest? Approved, as we have already mentioned, according to the regulations with UNI EN 12420-3 certificate. Your neck should be able to keep your head out of the water, good grip, easy to remove and put on, in bright colors for quick location at sea, with fluorescent or reflective tapes, whistle and emergency light. Barcos.online, offers a wide assortment of life vests and clothes to navigate , so that it is easy for you to choose. An important issue is the size, if we wear a vest too big we can leave, if it is too small we can not adjust it well and what is more important will not support our weight and will not keep us afloat.

    The life jacket Nadir is a scapular vest, ie without back, like the 150 Newtons approved life jacket available in various sizes. The adult lifejacket Thyphon assures us the buoyancy with its polyethylene foam and is also available in several sizes. The Antile lifejacket and the Martinique lifejacket are very comfortable equipped with fastening straps and harness with quick fasteners. For children we have this same model called Martinique HELLO KITTY life jacket in 15-30 and 30-40 kilos.

    Your pets must also be equipped with their OSCAR lifejacket for dogs and cats, sizes S, M and L.

    In long voyages I recommend equipping the vests with the PLB1 personal beacon, it is a guarantee that pressing the RescueMe button will alert the rescue media through the satellite and rescue network that are distributed all over the world

    boats, propeller

    Bow thruster

    June 7, 2018

    The propeller bow or also called maneuver propellers were born by the need to avoid losses of installed time and to achieve maneuverability at very low speeds. Over time, it has been increasingly installed on smaller tonnage merchant ships and large luxury yachts, since it has been proven its effectiveness has been adopted by smaller recreational vessels Currently, it is increasingly common to get boats of small and medium length that have incorporated a propeller maneuver in bow or propeller bow .

    Characteristics of the bow thruster

    The bow propellers are very similar to conventional propellers, in a smaller format and with the difference that the axis of rotation is transverse to the direction of the ship’s direction. The propeller of bow or maneuver allow that the lateral movements of the prow are much easier, when almost always they are difficult to control by the wind or the currents. The propulsive force of the bow thruster is what determines its effectiveness and not the power of the engine. The effectiveness is given as a result of the combination of the following factors: the power of the electric motor, the propeller and the greater or lesser loss of effectiveness in the conduit or tunnel.

    Advantages of the bow thruster

    1. They allow the maneuver in narrow, complicated places and, above all, in unknown moorings.
    2. It does not allow the currents to affect them or due to the effect of the descent produced by the wind when it comes to carrying out the maneuver .
    3. The evolutionary effects produced in the course of the combination of the propeller, rudder and rudder when maneuvers are being carried out in both narrow places and in the am

    Bow thruster materials

    The propellers are made of different types of materials, the most commonly used are those derived from aluminum, steels, titanium, bronze or composite materials. Aluminum as pure material can not be used in the construction of helices because it is very soft, and therefore does not adequately support cavitation. It is a very active metal with three valence electrons, which, when in contact with air, quickly oxidizes the metal surface. It is therefore necessary to alloy it with other metals such as copper, magnesium, manganese, nickel, silicon, bromine and zinc.
