Sample text

If you look carefully, you will see the surface of the water begin to dip about halfway along the waterline. The boat is now approaching its maximum speed if it is a displacement boat. The power demand to push the boat up the hill of water suddenly increases, and she will go no faster with the available sails or engine. However, if the boat is flat aft, it may rise, and plane. High-speed motor boats are designed for this, so that their maximum speed is not limited in the same way. You may indeed see some racing craft with nearly the whole hull out of the water, only the propeller seeming to be actually below the surface.

If you stir your tea, you produce a forced vortex, in which the surface is cup-shaped, sloping up steeply at the outer limits. If you pull out the plug, in the sink, you will see a free vortex, in which the surface is rather like a trumpet, vanishingly small at the centre. As a point of interest, in the northern hemisphere, the water in a free vortex rotates in an anti-clockwise direction. † You may care to check this when you pull out the plug in your bath. This is due to the Coriolis effect, which you may like care to examine in the literature.

A boat can be rowed well or badly, and you will see examples of both in your boat watching. You may have the unkind pleasure of seeing a rower "catch a crab". This is when the oar comes out of the water before completing its stroke, often throwing the 48 Boat Watching rower into the bottom of the boat. Beginners often suffer this, till they have got the knack. The correct way to use an oar is to lower it into the water with the blade vertical, stationary relative to the water, but already moving relative to the boat.
