The ongoing story of Vince and Maria aboard our Cape Dory 33 'Amante'
Is that some kind of vertical axis wind turbine? Or a barber pole?
Michael said:It's a vertical rotating cylinder sail (see: http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/cyl.html)The fence is to keep the flying fish from flying back at the helmsman after they land on the winglets.Cloudia is a bit harder. I have two suggestions. One can be found at http://www.yvw.com.au/waterschool/juniors/cloudia/cloudia_01.htmlor Cloudia might be a character in a play. One of her lines is:CLOUDIA: So we just need to find a location away from tall structures that might block the wind, with a wind speed of at least 13 miles per hour, and in a place that won’t disturb wildlife. A sailor if ever I heard from one. She can be found at:http://126.96.36.199/search?q=cache:MNqo4s-VYdAJ:www.eia.doe.gov/kids/classactivities/wind_elemrev.pdf+cloudia&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=10&gl=us
Cloudia seems to be missing some of her address. Try:http://www.yvw.com.au/waterschool/juniors/cloudia/cloudia_01.html
Cloudia's play is at:http://188.8.131.52/search?q=cache:MNqo4s-VYdAJ:www.eia.doe.gov/kids/classactivities/wind_elemrev.pdf+cloudia&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=10&gl=us
What a fantastic crowd of babies...as for the challenge, I'm going to have to think, Michael seems so definitive, I'll have to d some research.
Meg's answers.#1 -It's a floating Barber Shop & all Barber Shop's have striped poles.#2 - The fences keep the people away from the barber until it's their turn.#3 - They ran out of red paint.#4 - It's the name of the Barber's wife.
