"Back-bouncing is a river technique, usually in strong current, where you use a trolling motor against the current to slow the boat's drift speed. Rig with 2- to 8-ounce weights, cast downstream from your boat, and then use a lift-and-drop technique to walk baits downstream with the current as you drift."
Xaust Drift Speed Booster is a tiny device that works like magic
And to that point, Power-Pole's Drift Paddle accessories allow even greater control over drift speed and direction.
However, the Authors actually assume the classical electron flow along wires as the meaning of electric current in wires, and claim that this current travels along the conductors at the speed of light even though the drift speed of electrons in the wires is a snail's pace (e.g.
Before the presentation of the model, the distribution of drift speed over space through survey needs to be given for description of drift behavior through CA modeling.
Ship drift speed under the perpendicular wind direction to ships
For the wind speed of [v.sub.a] = 5m/s, this yields a contribution to the drift speed of [v.sub.w] [approximately equal to] 12 cm/s.
Drift speed has to be strictly controlled, and rigging has to match speed.
The fragments then drift through a vacuum, with the drift speed depending on each fragment's mass.
Judging the drift speed in the 5 to 10 knot breeze, we decided on 1/8-ounce egg sinkers, rigged knocker style, to keep the strips right over the grass tips.
The more perpendicular to the boat or wading position the cast is, the more effect drift speed has.
Port gate navigation is dangerous to ships at the time of strong cross-directional winds, because the wind's velocity reaches above 15 m/s and forms a lateral flow (along the coast) and the drift speed of a large vessel can reach up to 3/4 knots, i.e.
