 WHEN MAKING INQUIRIES PLEASE INCLUDE THE ITEM NUMBER AND AS MUCH DETAIL ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT AS POSSIBLE.  YOU SHOULD ALSO INCLUDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER, LOCATION AND GMT TIME.  WE CAN  OFTEN CLARIFY MUCH DETAIL FASTER ON THE PHONE.  WE CAN OFTEN GIVE YOU AN ESTIMATE OF AVERAGE SHIPPING IF YOU WILL INCLUDE AT LEAST CITY AND ZIP CODE IN THE U.S. OR FOREIGN MAIL CODE.  WE ARE IN GMT -0600 AND CAN BE REACHED BEST BETWEEN 0700 AND 2300 -0600 GMT (GREENWICH MEAN TIME). 

FOR ALL ITEMS OR PARTS THAT YOU WANT THAT ARE NOT ON THE WEBSITE INCLUDE PHOTOS.  HERE IS SOMETHING WE HAVE LEARNED THAT WILL SAVE ALL OF US TIME.   IN THIS DAY AND AGE PHOTO INFORMATION IS ABOUT 10 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS TEXT AND ABOUT 5 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS VOICE COMMUNICATION.  PHOTOS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  SEND PHOTOS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.  IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE NUMBERS SEND PHOTOS AND A TEXT DESCRIPTION WITH DIMENSIONS THE BEST THAT YOU CAN.  WE HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE ON SOME MACHINES THAT DATA PLATES, IDENTITY TAGS AND NUMBERS ARE LOST OR CANNOT BE READ.  WHEN YOU SEND PHOTOS WE CAN EMAIL THEM TO OUR NETWORK AND MANY MORE PEOPLE TAKE AN INTEREST AND FIND IT MUCH EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND FORWARD TO OTHERS IN ATTEMPTS TO FIND ITEMS AND PARTS FOR YOU.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

AN ASTERISK (ALSO KNOWN AS "STAR") "*" MEANS THAT WE SEE THAT THERE IS IMPORTANT AND HELPFUL DETAIL MISSING OR THE ACCURACY IS IN QUESTION.  IN MOST CASES WE ARE TRYING TO CLARIFY AND CONFIRM OBJECTIVE DETAILS AND WILL UPDATE AS WE GET MORE INFORMATION.

PLEASE SEE SECTION 2.23. FOR SOME USEFUL OCEAN SHIPPING INFORMATION.

WE HAVE CHECKED, PERSONALLY USE AND RECOMMEND THE PRODUCTS IN THESE LINKS. 


LIMITED WARRANTIES AND GUARANTIES:  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS WHERE IS.   IT IS NOT PRACTICAL TO SHIP MOST ITEMS ESPECIALLY MACHINERY ITEMS GREAT DISTANCES EVEN BETWEEN STATES AND ESPECIALLY  BETWEEN COUNTRIES BUT THESE STATEMENTS SHOW THAT THE ITEMS ARE BETTER QUALITY AND WILL PROBABLY BE REASONABLY TROUBLE FREE WHEN PROPERLY MAINTAINED.  

EVEN IF WE BUY A CAR IN THE U.S. IT HAS TO BE DELIVERED BACK TO THE DEALER OR AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDER WHERE A DETERMINATION CAN BE MADE THAT A  PROBLEM IS DUE TO A DEFECT IN MATERIALS OR WORKMANSHIP AND IS NOT DUE TO LACK OF PROPER OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE.   ITEMS USED FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESS ARE SELDOM WARRANTED TO THE SAME STANDARD AND ARE, IN FACT,  USUALLY EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY.   VERY FEW ITEMS HAVE A NATIONAL AUTHORIZED SERVICE NETWORK THAT IS PRACTICAL WHEN WE CONSIDER OUR "DOWN TIME" AND EVEN FEWER HAVE INTERNATIONAL NETWORKS.   OUR BEST GUARANTEE IS TO PROPERLY OPERATE AND MAINTAIN WHAT WE BUY AND IT WILL BE CHEAPER OVER TIME AND IN MOST CASES MUCH OF OUR PROFIT MARGIN.  

MOTIVATED RESPONSIBLE PERSONS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN EVERYTHING EVEN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.  THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES BECAUSE SPARE PARTS AND EXPERIENCED SERVICE ARE NOT AS AVAILABLE.  MOST AMERICAN BUSINESSES BUY USED EQUIPMENT WHENEVER THEY CAN AND MAINTAIN IT THEMSELVES ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE GROWING.  THE NEW EQUIPMENT IS OFTEN TOO EXPENSIVE AND STILL HAS TO BE OPERATED AND MAINTAINED PROPERLY FROM THE FIRST DAY OR THE DOWN TIME PUTS US OUT OF PROFITABLE BUSINESS.  IF WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO "DO IT RIGHT" WHEN WILL WE FIND TIME "TO DO IT OVER". 

USEFUL INFORMATION: 

THE INTERNATIONAL PHONETIC ALPHABET CAN SAVE MUCH TIME AND MINIMIZE CONFUSION.   ALL INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES AND MARINERS USE THIS.  IT IS IN OUR "ENLIGHTENED SELF-INTEREST" TO HAVE A WORLD WIDE SYSTEM OF EDUCATION OF THE NEXT GENERATIONS.  WE DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL.

BUOYANCY EQUALS 5.25 LBS PER SQUARE FOOT PER INCH OF DEPTH;  USING 63 LBS PER CUBIC FOOT OF FRESH WATER (ACTUAL IS 62.4 FRESH WATER, 64.3 SALT WATER AT 68 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT [19.9 CELSIUS] )

DISPLACEMENT HULL SPEED FORMULA:   1.25 TIMES THE SQUARE ROOT OF THE WATER LINE LENGTH = HULL SPEED;  EXAMPLES:  30 FOOT LENGTH SQUARE ROOT = 5.477 X 1.25 = 6.846 MILES PER HOUR; 20 FOOT LENGTH SQUARE ROOT = 4.477 X 1.25 = 5.59 MILES PER HOUR; IT TAKES MUCH MORE EXTRA POWER TO PUSH OR PULL FASTER THAN HULL SPEED THAN THE POWER REQUIRED TO GO HULL SPEED OR LESS. 

FOR BARGE HULLS ARROW DYNAMICS OF A RAKED BOW HAS ALMOST NO POSITIVE AFFECT ON SPEED BELOW HULL SPEED SO IF A BARGE IS NOT GOING TO BE PUSHED FASTER THAN ABOUT 5 TO 6 MPH A RAKE IS NOT USEFUL, ADDS TO COST AND REDUCES BUOYANCY.  

RUST:  RUST SCALE, WHEN PRESENT, IS 11 TIMES THE THICKNESS OF THE METAL LOST;  

CONDENSTATION:  ALL BARGES, BOATS, FUEL TANKS AND CONTAINERS SWEAT INSIDE AND CAN RUST INSIDE WITH TEMPERATURE CHANGE UNLESS THE METALS ARE PROPERLY CLEANED AND COATED INSIDE.  AS TEMPERATURE GOES UP AIR EXPANDS AND THEN WHEN TEMPERATURE GOES DOWN AIR CONTRACTS THIS CAUSES A NATURAL AIR MOVEMENT.  WARM AIR CAN HOLD MORE MOISTURE THAN COOL AIR AND IT IS NORMAL FOR MOISTURE TO COME OUT OF THE AIR IN BARGES, BOATS, FUEL TANKS AND ONE ATMOSPHERE CONTAINERS AND CAUSE MOLD AND MUSTY SMELL IN BOATS AND SWEATING OF SIDES, COLLECTION OF WATER IN THE BILGES AND CORROSION OF METALS AND OTHER DAMAGE.  AIR CONDITIONING REMOVES MOISTURE.  DEHUMIDIFIERS CAN REMOVE MOISTURE IN BOATS AND HOMES THAT ARE LOCKED UP AT LESS COST THEN RUNNING AIR CONDITIONING WHEN NOT REGULARLY OCCUPIED.  . 

INSIDE LOSS OF METAL THICKNESS:  MOST BARGES AND BOATS THAT WERE NOT SAND BLASTED AND PAINTED WHEN NEW HAVE 100 TO 300% MORE CORROSION AND METAL THICKNESS LOSS ON THE INSIDE, WERE IT IS ALWAYS DAMP, THAN ON THE OUTSIDE.  RUST SCALE IS 11 TIMES THE THICKNESS OF THE METAL THAT WAS RUSTED AWAY (OXIDIZED);

CONTAINER SHIPABLE SIZES MAXIMUM DIMENSIONS (0.5 INCH CLEARANCE ON EACH SIDE AND I INCH ON TOP AT THE DOOR OPENING, MORE CLEARANCE INSIDE): THE CHEAPEST WAY TO SHIP WORLD WIDE IS BY CONTAINER.  40 FOOT CONTAINERS ARE ONLY ABOUT 25% MORE COSTLY THAN 20 FOOT CONTAINERS TO SHIP FOR 100%* MORE CAPACITY.  HIGH CUBE CONTAINERS, WHICH ARE 1 FOOT HIGHER, ARE USUALLY THE SAME PRICE AS STANDARD 40 CONTAINERS.  (TEU MEANS TWENTY FOOT EQUIVALENT UNIT)
