I'm getting to pick the brain of a NA for free, I won't pass that up. Your input on diesel-electric hybrid, where for a mono, a single diesel-electric motor and propulsion/house bank of batteries. Charging when needed while under sail with re-gen, motoring with electricity, and diesel use only as needed.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Erik, what a beauty, a bit like a Sundeer, long and lean. Bet it can turn in a good 24 hour run!

I take it that it is a lot harder to preg test a sheep then a cow? Astrid, chime in on this. Or do you even preg test sheep?

For those that don't know what I am talking about, here is part of the equipment used. You will just have to imagine how.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Worked in the TV biz making sure the electrons kept flowing out of the studio and building (not responsible for the content). Over ten years ago decided 19 years on a midnight shift was enough. I was living to work and now I work to live. I freelance now a few times a year. Worked two whole months total all last year and was able to pay the bills. Of course I keep my wants and needs in order. Most of the rest of my time is spent on my boat or whatever boat my gal makes me go on when she needs a vacation. Was thinking of starting a day sail/sunset charter business that's why I got my Captains license but, I also really enjoy being on the boat without a schedule. So I'm a little conflicted if I really want to head in that direction at this point.

Tend to use ultrasonic testing on sheep and pigs. In cattle, though, manual palpitation of the uterus by way of the rectum (hence the long rubber gloves) can give extremely accurate results as early as five weeks. It is a bit on the dangerous side unless you have the subject restrained in a squeeze chute (cattle crush). Ultrasound pregnancy tests are becoming more affordable and common now that testing equipment has gotten smaller and more portable.
