Welcome to this week's edition of Harbor Talk Weekly, bringing you updates, ideas and events around Norwalk.
Winterizing Engines


As temperatures fall, water will freeze, we know that... but when that water is inside an engine or gear case, a cracked block or housing might be the net result, along with astronomical repair bills !  


You can prevent this, and sleep well on those cold winter nights by taking the right steps now....   Remember that Neglect = Trouble next season !


Make a Check List - It's important that you don't miss anything, so a detailed list is a good place to start. Review your owner's manual for winterizing instructions specific to your engine or follow these generic instructions:


First, get some supplies.... A spray can of engine fogging oil*, a few gallons of "pink stuff" (propylene glycol antifreeze - non toxic) the appropriate engine oil and filter, transmission fluid, some engine antifreeze and some fuel stabilizer or diesel fuel biocide.  *Fuel injected (EPI / MPI) engines will require a winterizing mix of fuel, oil and stabilizer.


Second, roll up your sleeves.....

Seaweed Farming in Long Island Farm ?


Does your mental image of Long Island Sound  

include a seaweed farm that also cleans the surrounding water as the crop grows?   


Well, if not, it should! As part of a research project that he leads for Connecticut Sea Grant, Charles Yarish and his collaborators have successfully grown and harvested Gacilaria , an economically valuable edible seaweed, in the Sound. Gracilaria is a source of agar, an extract used as a nutrient and stabilizer in foods for humans and shrimp. It's also known as agar-agar, for growing cultures in labs. It's also used in salads and as a garnish.........
