ITS (call sign) is way out at the end of the dock.
CF-FITS is printed on the tail fin. This buggy can get off the water in about six boat lengths: Bong!
The pilot can run the prop in reverse thrust!
If you know what you are doing the plane parks itself. Josh picks her up and puts her down effortlessly.

Hey Ylee:
I must have picked the Marvel Comics for that sentiment. Actually I did not purchase comics anyway - we moved house now and then as students and the one where I found the Silver Surfer Comics collection was one which Tloml had lived in earlier with a group of nursing students. We moved in there after my choice of rental made her cry. There is another story there but it is P.G.

I liked Silver Surfer, too. He was one of the most internally burdened fictional characters ever, certainly the most troubled comic book character. Marvel always had a knack with presenting heavy-themed subjects, far more so than DC.

Good morning OrangeRoses:
Very interesting. My neighbor works in a used book store so maybe she can find the book. I don't read much fiction lately but history, especially stuff which is not commonly accepted, does interest me.
Those coffee beans you use must be pretty potent.

YCD? Hi.

I'm almost finished reading "The hunt for zero point: inside the classified world of antigravity technology"
by Nick Cook. Non Fiction.
I hope this relates to your mention of '1/10th the speed of light'. The author works for Jane's a British Magazine about airplanes I think? Anyway, the timesetting in some of this book is WW2 Germany and Austria. Using vortices and special metals, 100 kg circular hovercraft were captured on film and photographed in huge underground laboratories dug out by prisoners of war. Many names were provided in this book. The 3rd Reich leaders who oversaw these top secret projects. Much was destroyed but documents were buried and recovered by the Russians, British, Polish and Americans. In fact the Space Program of the 1960's was based on existing Nazi experiments from the 1940's! My minor point here is not hysteria. It is this:

if you have a way of using the zero-point energy field it can become a limitless supply of energy and ultimately move a craft in deep outer space at light speed or beyond.

I just drink coffee and am there already

My favorite comic was "Silver Surfer":

But surfing light waves might work if we figured out how to shrink the board down to lengths measured in angstrom units. 'Course some folks imagine light to travel as particles and others say it is both.
Whatever it is other folks are imagining sailing on the solar wind:

Up to 1/10th the speed of light.
Probably would not need an headrest though. Take a couple of years to get to terminal velocity.

Got a solar-powered surfboard? :)

Quoting Ylee:
" I could do very little about the India Plate tectonics."

Unless you dropped a plate that was made in India! :)

Very good illustration that light travels in a wave!

But can you surf it?

Better watch out!
Looks like the sun is about to melt right through that tree!

Good morning:
The snapped off Fir tree leans away from the house about a hundred feet away from my smoking patio when at Mom's.
She had a very short list of things for me to fix and had been watching a TV show about the undersea 'quake:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-17675399
so she included it on my "to do" list.
I tacked the bedroom telephone cable in place and fixed the handles on the sliding screen door but found I could do very little about the India Plate tectonics.

Farther to #2:
Gotta tell ya about "Blacky":
He came in to some place - maybe Nelson Island. We were sitting in the bar and wandered down with our bags. Blackey waved us off while he poured liter after liter of engine oil in to the Beaver (there is an oil tube convieniently placed in the old Beavers so the pilot can add oil as needed) and eventually waved us aboard.
Did she smoke on the way out?
Possibly

Evening Ylee:
Seems to me the pilot "feathers' the prop to neutral and reverse thrust. But you know: I'm just a butt on a seat - 'course that seat has been co-pilot many times long before these turbine rigs came along. The kids that fly me around are the age of my grandchildren.
I actually appreciate a young pilot: decent vision and reasonable hand/eye co-ordination.

Nice plane! Does the prop have gearing to make it go in reverse, I assume?

A coworker's dad built himself an ultralight aircraft a couple years ago, and promptly put it into a tree; he didn't get hurt too bad, but the plane did, so he's now using the engine and prop to make an airboat!
