DIY Dog Kennel Using Free Pallets and $5 worth of plywood
I spent about $20 in materials for this dog kennel. If you've already got the hardware and wood, you can build this thing for free. I did have to buy a pocket hole jig, which I think was a wise investment. I hope to get a lot more use out of it in the future. My wife follows a talented woman named Ana White. She built a similar kennel a while back, but it looked much nicer than the one I have built. She also spent significantly more than I did on the wood. Her plans can be found on her website here: http://www.ana-white.com/2010/10/large-wood-pet-kennel-end-table I'm probably going to build a new kennel with nicer materials in the coming months.

Boat Recovery After Some Idiot Got Stuck in The Sand at Sand Hollow Reservior
That idiot was me. 2 years ago, I was driving with a group of teenage kids through Sand Hollow State Park in Southern Utah. I took their advice to book it through the sand to the beach where the sand was more solid. We didn't even make it halfway there. I'm a moron. Luckily we we helped out a guy who had gotten stuck in the sand himself. After helping him get out of the sand, he loaned us tons of chains and straps we used to reach the trailer and pull it out with a vehicle safely from the road. Since it was stuck in the sand, it made it easy to drag the trailer to the road without damaging the hitch or jack. it could have been much worse. We were very lucky.

How To Build A Solar Battery Charger From Solar Garden Lights - DIY
Not that Solar lights aren't useful. They just don't put off a ton of light. I had a handful of these solar units lying around and decided to take them apart and reconfigure them as a solar battery charger. I bought the solar charge controller on eBay for less than $10 and wired everything together on a piece of coroplast. I'll probably improve my design a little and mount it to my daughter's power wheel. Or maybe not. I kind of like the idea of having the battery charger be portable. One of the drawbacks of my unit so far is that it isn't protected against the rain particularly well. I could improve that if I wanted to.

1995 Seadoo SPX Troubleshooting Fail - Spark Test, Fuel Test
I initially made this video to diagnose a no spark issue with my Seadoo. I was confident that was the problem because I had the Seadoo running out of the water before I took it to the lake, but once I got to the lake, it wouldn’t start in or out of the water. I tried putting starter fluid directly into the carbs, and didn’t get them to fire up. I thought I was getting fuel to the engine, but it wouldn’t start, so my next thought was spark. Before I took it to the lake, we got it running in my driveway. My brother had rebuilt the carbs for me, but he hadn’t done anything like that before, and I’m starting to think that he may not have cleaned them out properly, and the carbs are still the problem. One weird thing is that the seadoo won’t fire even when I put gas and starter fluid directly into the cylinders. I assumed I would at least get a few rotations out of the engine with fuel directly in the cylinders, but it wouldn’t fire at all. In the video, you can tell it takes some time for the seadoo to fire up. It finally does, and I let it warm up for a few minutes at idle. Then I give it some gas and it doesn’t seem to hit the RPMs it should be. (I’m assuming this based upon the sound I heard). I worked on it last night, and got it running in the video. When I went out this morning, it fired right up. I think this was a carburetor issue, but want to know for sure. Do any of you have thoughts? I’m going to run the machine out of the water for an hour or so and make sure I’m getting good gas flow through the carbs. If the machine doesn’t run right, I’m going to rebuild the carburetors.

Seadoo Clicking - No Start Troubleshooting Opening Fuse Box, Checking Solenoid, Replacing Starter
If your seadoo won't start and you're just getting a clicking sound, this video shows you a possible solution. This video is of my 1995 Seadoo SP, but this procedure will be applicable to many Seadoos with 587, 657, and 717 engines. I"m not sure about other engines because I've only worked on those 3 engines. These engines are in most seadoos up until 1996. Here I remove the Fuse box, test the starter solenoid, remove the starter, test the starter, and install a new one.

Lump Self Surgery In the Kitchen Sink Lipoma Removal At Home
I recently noticed a small lump on my forearm. It didn't hurt, or bother me, but it looked a little weird. I thought I had a cyst or something, but web searches lead me to believe I had a lipoma, or a fatty deposit under the skin. These don't appear to form for any specific reason, and are pretty much harmless, but I decided to remove it myself. I've also got a small one on my stomach and one on my leg a little larger than a grape that I may get to in the future. For this procedure, I used a precision knife set I bought at Harbor Freight for $2.99. To make the incision. I made a cut directly over the top of the lump, and was able to see the lipoma only after cutting a few millimeters into my skin. Once I could see the lipoma, I began to record the extraction. I squeezed the area, and it popped out easily. The lipoma felt like gristle from an uncooked steak. It was firm yet squishy. To prepare the area, I shaved it and wiped it with alcohol. I boiled my knife in water and cleaned it with alcohol before the incision. Instead of stitches, I used superglue and a butterfly bandage. The superglue didn’t hold as well as I had hoped, and the scar is wider than it could have been, but in all, I’m happy with the results.

How To Separate Things Using Ropes, a Car, and a Tree
Don't try this at home. I could have busted up the back window of my Expedition if the pipe came back at a different angle. I recognized this possibility, but did it anyway. I was helping a neighbor kid put a Lifetime brand basketball hoop together, and we inadvertently connected the two pieces incorrectly. We also followed the instructions on how to secure the pipes together before we realized our mistake. These pipes were stuck. We tried pulling on it, having a tug of war with it, banging on it with hammer and a piece of wood, and putting smaller pole down the middle and banging on it with a hammer. After we failed, I decided to take it home and figure it out.

Serving Justice to the Thief Who Sold Bad Gift Cards
I found this guy through online classifieds. We met in a parking lot, and I called Nordstrom to make sure the cards were good. The phone system indicated that the funds were on the cards. Just to be safe, I asked for the guys ID, and took a picture of it. I then took a picture of his car and license plate. Turns out Nordstrom would not allow me to use the cards in the store because there was a hold on the account. I imagine the hold was put in place because this loser bought the cards using a stolen credit card. The ID he showed me turned out to be the ID of a guy who had passed away the month before (the two looked very similar). I tried to text and call him to get my money back, but he simply ignored my attempts to contact him. after a few days and continual prodding, I finally gave up and filed a police report. The police tracked him down using the license plate number I gave them and called me in for a picture lineup to see if I could identify him. Turns out picture line ups are very difficult. They all looked so similar. I thought could be 2 of the 6 people they showed me. That wasn't enough for a positive ID, so the police weren't able to do much other than try to get him to confess, which they obviously were not able to do. At this point, I didn't know who he really was, but the police did. They couldn't give me his information, so I had to go about searching again. I had googled his number multiple times before he disconnected it, and the only thing that would come up was the ad that he had listed for the gift cards. After the line up, I googled the number again and saw another online classified he had posted for a cell phone. He changed his number, but initially forgot to change it on the classified website. Google crawled the webpage before he changed it on the website, so the cached webpage pulled up his old number, while the updated listing had a new number that I used to track him down. I set up a meeting to buy the phone and recorded the outcome. I was very happy with the results.

Wrong Timing, Over Tightened Valves, Running Rich, 95 Mastercraft Prostar Indmar 5.7L 350 EFI engine
At first, I thought this boat was entering limp mode, but now it looks like the valves were over tightened by the previous owner. I did some valve adjustments, and it idles much better now, but it still had some issues. I was able to fix a couple fo the issues by correcting the timing, and installing an Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor. The timing was off because the timing chain was not installed properly. The ECT Sensor was not installed because the previous owner replaced the block and the new blcok did not have an ECT installed, I bought a new one and it fixed the running rich problem I was having. I just purchased a new to me 1995 Mastercraft Prostar 205. We lake tested it last weekend, and immediately after we left the marina harbor, I started videoing because it would't go above 2000 RPMs. I'v read that this may be a sign that the boat is entering limp mode. We turned the boat around immediately and returned it to the marina.

Baretta Lake Test - It Failed!
I was finally able to get it on the lake to see if this thing floats. Regretfully, it didn't go well. We were able to idle out past the no wake zone, and give it a little throttle for about 50 yards before I started smelling something burning. I throttled down and started to make my way back to the dock. When I stopped the engine in the wakeless zone, there was a significant amount of smoke coming from the starboard side of the engine. The exhaust manifold was also very hot. It didn't seem like the new water pump I installed was doing its job of circulating lake water through the exhaust manifolds. Any thoughts on this?

Fibercell Cordova Project Boat Introduction & Un-seizing the Engine

If you'd like to see a full rundown of the boat including some of the treasures we found inside, watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3wG1aG8iGw The previous owner bought it from some friends who had left it uncovered in the backyard since 2006. It obviously did some damage to the interior. Having sat for over 10 years has also seized the engine. I used some diesel fuel to penetrate and lubricate the engine which allowed me to crank the engine over and free it up.

What I Learned: Changing Bellows, Shift Cable, Gimble Bearing On An Alpha One
My 1991 Monterey 189 SCR had a problem shifting into reverse. The mechanic diagnosed it as a bad lower shift cable. He also found a hole in my U-Joint Bellows, and said while I had the drive off, I should replace the bellows and gimble bearing as well. I bought the boat for $1,500, so when he quoted me $1,200 for the repairs, I couldn't justify having him do the work for me, so I tried it myself. I recorded most of my progress and will upload the videos soon to show how I did it.

JB Weld Steel Stik DIY Wakeboard Lock Washers
I've got a handful of 2008 liquid force bindings that didn't come with mounting hardware. Regretfully, wakeboard companies change up their mounting hardware all the time and there isn't any uniform bolting system that will work on everything. These 2008 Bindings have a very specific system that isn't made anymore called Slide Locks. My local shops didn't have any, and Liquid Force themselves didn't have any in stock. I decided to try and make my own using some epoxy clay. After making the locks, I drilled holes through the middle of them to put thumb bolts through. I have installed 4 of them on my daughters board. We'll see how they hold up.

FInd a leak in your boat by flooding it.
I recently acquired a sweet 1989 Supra Mariah. As with lots of boats this age, it had a few problems. One particular problem was that it was taking on a significant amount of water. I'd need to run the bilge pump anytime we stopped the boat to get the excess water out. I tried to find the leak while it was in the water, but I didn't have any luck, so I trailered it, and took it home to flood the hull. This was the result.

Converting a jetski trailer into a ghetto flatbed trailer
****Do not drive something like this on public roads***** A few months back, I bought a clothes washer and dryer. Regretfully, they wouldn't fit in the back of my SUV, so I needed to rig this bad boy up to move them a short distance. One problem is the fact that the frame of the trailer was slanted to accommodate a waverunner, and as such, there was not a good structure directly beneath the wood in the middle. For my short term purposes, it still held up to the weight of a washer and dryer.

The Best $300 Boat I've ever bought - Turning a Boat With a Cracked Block Into a Family Lake Cruiser
I picked up this sweet Bayliner for $300 because the owner said the engine had a "crack in it". Not knowing what that meant, and guessing a tandem axle trailer would be worth at least that amount, I figured I’d buy it and see what I could do with it. In the end, the boat had 4 cracks in the exhaust manifolds and 2 wide cracks in the block. Luckily, the cracks were exterior, and there wasn’t any water getting in the block contaminating the oil. With a few sticks of Epoxy Putty and a package of JB Weld like compound from Harbor Freight, I did my best to patch up the cracks. This is the process.

DIY Casting Parts With Aluminum Recycled From Cans
I recently bought some new old stock wakeboard bindings on Ebay, and was excited to get them for a screaming deal. Regretfully, they didn’t come with the hardware to install them properly, and they stopped making this specific kind of lock nut that fits my bindings. I couldn’t find them anywhere. I even tried calling the manufacturer, Liquid Force, but I was out of luck. No one had any 2008 Liquid Force lock washers. Luckily, I was able to make some lock washers using JB Weld epoxy putty as seen in this video: https://youtu.be/eb6U3w23iV8 I put the epoxy lock washers on my daughter’s wakeboard, and we were in business for the rest of the season. I wasn’t sure how the epoxy putty would hold up to the demands of wakeboarding, and I had 2 other pairs of adult bindings that needed these parts, so I decided to try and make some out of some more durable materials. I made a set out of HDPE, and a set out of aluminum. For the HDPE video, look here: COMING SOON

Trying to recreate no start conditions.  *Bad Ignition Control Module
*******UPDATE******It turned out being the ignition control module.**************************** After about 20 minutes of towing tubers around, we killed the engine to switch riders. When I went to start it again, it wouldn't start. I pulled the cover and saw that we were getting fuel through the Electronic Fuel Injectors. We cranked on it for a bit, and waited, then cranked again, and waited, then cranked again. After 5 minutes of intermittent waiting and cranking, I was just about to try and flag someone down for a tow when it started up. We kept the guys out on the tube, and started to tow them into the marina, but while towing them in, the engine wouldn’t rev above 2500 RPMs, but it sounded like the engine was running just fine, it simply lacked power. I made a video trying to replicate the issues without any luck, but thought I'd post the video of it running normally at 3500 RPMs to see if anyone spotted anything.
