    An Automated Garbage Can To Clean The Harbors?

    I have run across an interesting project that was crowd funded, and will hopefully do some good to the nasty ocean water that accumulates in the harbors.

    Having personally dove in Los Angeles Harbor while helping to train LA Harbor Police during my Dive Master training, I can personally say, harbor water is some of the most disgusting water around – floating oil, fuel, trash and shit.

    Literally, shit – some asshole boat owners are so cheap, that they will save the $6 charge to have their brown water tank pumped, and just empty it into the ocean.

    Currently, there are cleaning boats that patrol the harbor, but they are expensive to operate and are only in service during certain hours.

    The Sea Bin and developers
    The Seabin is about the size of a garbage can.

    The Seabin in action.
    The Seabin floats in the harbor and is run by a pump on the dock.

    Apparently, it collects the water on the surface, along with the trash and oil, and expels the cleaner water out the other end.

    They say that they have never had a fish caught in the device.

    You can see the crap that is collected.

    You can see the crap that it collects, but my question is, will that small can be enough to make a difference?

    I’m glad they got their funding, so hopefully technology will make a difference and clean the water.

    See the Seabin in action on YouTube:

    The Lamest Opening Night Report Ever

    October 2, 2015

    I texted the Captain of the Westerly dive boat and asked if there was any way I could get on the boat tonight.

    He replied, “No chance, boat is FULL.”

    I waited too long to get my spot, as I wasn’t sure if I was over my illness or even had the money until just recently.

    Well, I’m not going to do the break wall, and there are five and a half more months to catch lobsters, so I stopped by Timeless Pints where I met some friends for a beer or two, or three, or four.

    I was asked if I wanted to go down to the Long Beach Aquarium for “Dive Night.

    Long Beach Dive Night

    A night dive?

    Hell, yeah!

    I went home and was picked up by my friends who were in an Uber car; I had my SCUBA gear with me.

    Well, that’s when I found out that “Dive Night” is just a name, and there is no diving on “Dive Night.”

    Well, what the hell else was I going to do?

    Storm Troopers.

    A lobster!
    …at least I saw a lobster tonight.

    I met this really hot chick who was a friend of my friends.

    After several rounds of $8 beers, she begged me to come to her place and fuck her.

    I found out from one of my friends that she is a little nutso and wants to get pregnant by anyone, so she can blame it on her fuck buddy that has a job and a nice house.

    “She takes a needle and pokes holes in his condoms,” I was told.

    After I stopped paying attention to her for 15 seconds, she was hanging on to some other guy, begging him to fuck her.

    Why are nut jobs attracted to me?

    Weird chick
    I have no idea what this chick is doing.


    The night ended without incident.

    Talking to some people who went on the Westerly, some limited on the lobsters, most got one or two and a few got skunked.

    The season is just starting… sorry for the lame Opening Night Lobster Report.
