    My Cheap $200 Pontoon Boat Project Part 4

    August 16, 2019


    so a few years ago I bought this barrel
    off of Craigslist it was $5 and somewhere in the past it’s got a hole drilled in
    it I don’t think I drilled that hole I know I cut that accidentally using this
    as a sawhorse but I don’t think I drilled the hole there’s also a hole up here
    when I bought it I don’t then they told me it had holes in it so I’m not using
    this as a pontoon for the pontoon boat but I won’t cut it on an angle and make
    a water diverter out of it. That’s today’s goal so just to the sawzall and cut the
    top off of this barrel now I’m gonna flip it over and cut the bottom off of
    it then it’s time to do some diagonals sawing. Or we could stop right here and
    have a really good trash can. Okay cut to is now done that one was down on the
    table saw and I came with the sawzall and just cut out these thick parts. Now
    we got to do a diagonal, hang on. So for my diagonal cut I’ve got these vice
    grips holding my tape measure and there is a line here that goes straight up and
    down and there’s a line on the opposite side they go straight up and down this
    line right here so I bought the tape measure to the other side and then
    that’s my diagnosed it with a sharpie I’ll flip it over do the same thing
    again cut it out. Cut number three will go this way and that way and meet up on
    the opposite end down there making another point we’ll have two diverters.
    This is step three. So on our fourth cut there’s two ways to
    have done this, I’ve got a speed square I need a 90-degree angle it goes right to
    the center. That’s one way to do it, but the way I did it make this part level
    then draw a plumb line cut it off do that both sides, we got it. So there’s my
    scrap from cutting up this barrel and I’ve got two of these pieces the top
    that we cut off that represents the barrel on the front of the boat and that
    is what it’ll look like once we get it on. I’m gonna use some kind of 2X4
    framing then screws straight into the 2X4’s and if water gets inside there
    I don’t really care I mean you could fill the foam or caulk it or whatever I
    think I’m gonna leave mine open for now. that’s exactly what I was looking for. So
    I’m trying to get ready for another spring trip tomorrow the boat is already
    hooked to the car and I just cut two boards these two are for that side these
    two are for this side and that’s what the water deflectors are going to screw
    – I got one installed one to go and it’s about the storm so maybe we should hurry,
    but go ahead and storm today and be pretty tomorrow that’s why I say so one of the
    diverters is fully installed if we come up top I took the deck board off and
    there’s a screw going in this way there’s a screwed one in that way
    there’s two screws coming to the bottom and I could get some spray foam and fill
    up this whole chamber I think what I’ll do is just get some empty like laundry
    detergent jugs two liter bottles fill this up with things that hold air put
    the deck board back on and call it done or we could put the hands on this that
    could be a compartment for things that don’t matter if they get wet
    fins hold a second all that is a perfect fit for fins okay let me think about
    that we might have a hinge on here and could do a hinge on the other side have
    another compartment can’t have too much storage okay I’ve loaded my possible
    storage space I got to find the hinges if we fold up like that look at that
    wetsuit son where’s your lifejacket out right here
    bungee there’s my rope for the anchor or if you want to do some magnet fishing my water boots another fin that’s a lot of space and
    the door I don’t know yet it might fold it this way that’s probably what I do
    put the hands down through that like a stud and this is Braceface number two it
    is on and ready for the diverter to be installed let’s install it and the good news is there’s a seam down
    the middle telling you where to put the screws in out and now moving to the back
    I just screwed this together. Anything what that’s for?
    You’re getting warmer that’s gonna be like a step when you’re
    riding along you keep your feet on it or when you want to get back in the boat
    you climb on that and you climb up into the boat be a little ladder once that
    ladder And so there’s the step step ladder in place as you’re riding put
    your feet up on it. I wonder if we could also strap the paddles to this hang on second
    this just in so now with this little board at it I’ve got all my paddles
    organized so you need a paddle reach in twist it pulls out put it back if you
    look under there they tuck into that front box let me zoom in so you can see
    it where there they are paddle one two three and a spare paddles
    even farther up in there peddle storage check some where to put your feet check
    front pontoon water diverters can’t see them from this angle but check it’s time
    to hit the river we have arrived at the river again this time it is the Suwannee
    River right across the river we’re gonna find Fanning Springs I can zoom in on
    the sign so we use the boat ramp we are now in
    the water the girls are working on getting on some lifejackets and we’re
    about to start kicking across about to where you see the kayakers. Did you figure it
    out? No… Let’s take the umbrella off. and if you look back behind the boat
    there’s a baby Gator half half of a baby Gator the front half may I call this the ravioli boat we have
    more canned pasta that’s spaghetti meatballs she’s got some lasagna she’s also got some keeping it a secret
    hang on oh she’s keeping it a big secret there it is
    raviolis and meatballs I guess I’m not some lasagna oh we’ve got the anchor out
    that’s the magnet you know just in case something’s in there if you want is on you
    I’ll share mine with you I’ll trade with you and the Chips Ahoy are open I think girls
    like Chips Ahoy mm swimming makes hungry in case you don’t
    know it and just missed it there was a manatee swam through I’m keeping my eyes
    up in case he comes back so we’ve been here about seven hours I
    think we’re gonna leave now go out and play swanee a little bit then we’ve
    got a motel room tomorrow we hit in a different spring
    this one’s Fanning tomorrow suppose go to Manatee.

    How to Make a Simple Pop Pop Boat

    August 14, 2019


    Today I’m going to show you how to make a really
    cool candle powered pop pop boat using household items. To make it we’re going to need an empty drinks can,
    some Blu-Tack, 2 straws and an empty juice carton. First we’re going to make the boiler, and
    we’ll start by taking the Coke can cutting off the top and bottom with a pair of
    scissors, and turning it into a flat sheet. Then we’ll cut a straight line down one edge, and from
    that mark out a rectangle 6cm wide by 18cm long. Be very careful not to cut yourself. Once we’ve cut that out we need to gently fold it in half, but don’t
    push down hard on the fold as we don’t want it to tear. Next we need to mark out a 1cm
    line around one half of the boiler and cut it out with our scissors, so we
    should now have something which looks like this. Next we’re going to take out Bu-Tack, warm it up in our hands
    and roll it out into a long worm about 0.5cm fat. Then we’re going to open up our boiler pattern and stick the
    Blu-Tack onto the 2 outside edges of the smaller half. Next we’re going to fold it in half, remembering
    not to push down hard on the fold and stick the two halves together. Then we’re going to take a bit more
    Blu-Tack and put it on the edges. It should look like this. Next we’re going to fold over the tabs on both sides, and gently crimp
    it all the way up with some pliers to form a seal. Then we need to take our scissors and cut off the
    excess tab to leave one long tab along the bottom. Next we’re going to take our Blu-Tack and push
    it into a flat strip about 1cm wide. Then we’re going to wrap it around the end of
    one of the straws, followed by the second. Add a bit more until the straws are well
    sealed in a good plug of Blu-Tack. Next we’re going to open up the end of the
    boiler, be very careful not to cut your fingers and push in the straws and Blu-Tack plug. Add a bit more Blu-Tack to form a good
    tight seal. It should look like this. Then we’re going to take our scissors and cut the
    bottom tab along each side of the straws. Next fold the tabs over and give them a squeeze with some
    pliers, but be careful not to rip the metal. Our boiler is not complete. Next we need to test it’s air tight by dipping it into
    a bowl of water and gently blowing through the straws. If you see any air leaking, give that area a
    gentle squeeze with the pliers and try again. To make the boat we’re going to take our empty juice carton, mark out and
    draw a line down the middle of it, and cut it in half. To make the cabin for the inside of the boat, cut
    the bottom off the half with the plastic lid. or if you have another empty juice carton, you can cut
    the bottom off that to make a slightly bigger cabin. I’ve also cut out some windows and we’ll be fixing that in place later. Next we need to cut a small hole in the bottom
    of the boat for the 2 straws to go through. This should be roughly half way up the carton an in the middle. Then we need to put a thin ring of
    Blu-Tack around the hole on both sides. Next we’re going to take our boiler and
    poke the 2 straws through the hole. Then we’re going to fix the straws firmly in place to the
    bottom of the boat with a strip of tape, Making sure the straws run to the back
    of the boat and are central. Then cut the straws off flush with the back of the boat. Next using a stapler we’re going to fix the cabin in place. And finally we need to make sure the Blu-Tack rings around
    the straws are pushed together to form a good seal. Our boat is now water tight and complete, but to use
    it we first need to prime the boiler with water. To do this we’re going to take one of
    our straw off cuts and snip the end. Then we’re going to poke it into one of
    the straws at the back of the boat and with a mouth full of clean water, blow water through
    the system until it comes out of the other straw. The boiler is now primed and ready to use. All we need to do now is drop a candle under the middle of the
    boiler, put it into the bath, and wait for it to warm up. It shouldn’t take long for the boiler to start popping, and off she goes. After a while you might find that the boiler leaks and doesn’t work properly,
    in which case you might need to seal it with some more Blu-Tack. Or if you have any you could make a
    boiler using epoxy glue rather then Blu-Tack. This is far more durable and should last a lot longer. You can paint your boat using a waterproof acrylic paint if you like, you
    can also spray it with a waterproofing lacquer to help protect it. But make sure it’s completely dry before you use it. If it’s taking a while to get going, try dropping a second
    candle underneath the boiler. This should help speed things up. If you like this project, maybe you’d like to take a look at some of
    my other videos by clicking on the links on the right hand side. Or take a look at my youtube channel page. Have fun and happy boating!

    Missouri Wind and Solar shows KWH’s produced from time solar tracker

    August 14, 2019


    Hi everybody, I’m Jeff from Missouri Wind
    and Solar and I wanna show you the production that we’re getting out of
    the Solar Time Tracker. I’ve been waiting to do this. We had last month was nothing but
    cloudy days. But, behind me is the solar time tracker, it works by time of day. That’s how this moves, it doesn’t track the sun, it goes by time of day. This is 3K
    worth of solar panels that we’ve got on there and they’re all hooked up
    to Aims micro grid tie inverters and I’m gonna go show you a meter and the kind
    of production we’re getting out in one day. You can see the sun, or the sky,
    it’s nice clear blue day. Now I’ll go show you the meter It is 9:30 in the morning and this
    is the kilowatt hours and I should have been on her earlier, but we’ll go from
    here. Seven hundred and forty-four kilowatt hours. Okay, so previously this
    morning I already showed you the kilowatt hours and it’s up to 745 so at the end
    of the day I’ll make another video showing you the kilowatt hours we
    produced. This here is the controller for the solar time tracker so we’ll wait ’til the
    end of the day and see how much, how many, kilowatt hours we’ve produced. Well, I’m back everybody and this is the next day, so if you take a look at the meter 769
    kilowatt hours and that’s in 24 hours Wyatt already wrote down, I started filming late, so he wrote down the actual kilowatt hours at 8 AM in the morning and
    it’s a quarter to 10 right now. So what we got at 8 AM, March 12 we started with seven hundred and forty kilowatt hours and March 13, that’s today, at 8 AM we had
    seven hundred and sixty-seven kilowatt hours and you say 769 now so that’s a total of 27 kilowatt hours.
    The temperature was sixty to sixty-five degrees and it was sunny, no clouds, and
    that’s in a 24 hour period. So, pretty much this time solar tracker is doing
    about 30 percent more than our fixed array that we have out front. We also have
    a fixed array. So at twenty-seven kilowatt hours in 24 hours, it was
    producing roughly 3000 watts in nine hours so that would be a total of eight
    hundred and ten kilowatt hours in 30 days that that would produce. So this
    morning, it is the 13th today, and it’s actually twenty minutes to 10 right
    now so since eight o’clock this morning it has done three kilowatt hours. It just
    turned seven hundred and seventy kilowatt hours and I’ll show you what
    the weather looks like outside if you want to follow me around here. And today is a cloudy day… Okay, so this is our time solar
    tracker and I’ll show you the fixed array that we have. And here’s our fixed array. So, we’ve already done the math between the fixed
    and the tracker, and the tracker is doing a minimum of 30% more power a day than over a fixed system. So, to me it’s well worth having a tracker especially
    if you’re living off-grid and charging a battery bank. I’m jeff for Missouri
    Wind and Solar and thanks for watching.

    BOX FORT ZOMBIE TRAP!! 📦😱24 HOUR BOX FORT ZOMBIE BASE

    happening something is going down right now versus the emergency alert then this
    package something’s not right you don’t think the Baron could be up to something
    do you we haven’t heard from the Baron in a really long time the medicine
    that’s in this bag supposedly could be the serum to stop the zombie virus which
    means we need to trap a zombie and try it on one it’s the only way we can know
    for sure if this will stop it round Logan Logan wake up get back okay
    come on wake up Logan look at wake up come on you gotta get up we’re down on
    ammunition they’re piling up out front look I know we don’t have any food or
    water but you got to get all of your strength we’ve got to get out we’ve got
    to go to the supply locker Jake I’m so hungry I don’t know if I can do this
    look and look I know but we have to go outside we have to get to the supply
    locker we stashed away a bug-out kit with all the essentials in there we’ll
    be able to survive a little bit longer in this base the zombies are coming in
    if we’re gonna expand to reinforce this place we need supplies
    not to mention the backpack look if it if what the doctor said is true and we
    really have the cure to all this we need to start thinking about creating a
    zombie trap and testing out the Cure on it we need to build a trap and test it
    out on the zombie we’re just happen take the power to shut
    off the power to shut off what’s going on you check the front it’s pitch black
    out here see flashlights in here Jake I don’t like this I don’t either let’s
    check outside oh no no pull the power’s out
    looks like stuffs really hitting the fan out there right at the power shut off
    Ivy’s the grid in the neighborhoods also shut off it’s supposed to set a
    disadvantage we can’t see the zombie so we can hear them but we’re traveling out
    there we got to stay close what kind of lights do we have we have five of these
    lamps I’ve got one flashlight in two head mounts that’s all you have limited
    batteries but look I’m gonna strap this onto my weapon it should be one last
    bullet here okay look I love one shot with this I can load up my gun with this
    and strap the flashlight to it but for you we’re gonna need to find you a
    weapon something we can use as a melee weapon we’ve got some extra cardboard
    here okay I can make like like a sword sword yeah that might just work load it
    up here let’s grab the tape and build yourself a sword the Hat should hold the book we gotta go
    we gotta start moving their altar off the house we’re not gonna make it to the
    storage locker without proper weapons let’s start building sword
    so much it’ll work when we head out that plus a headlamp should keep us safe all
    right let’s get your sword built and then we gotta head out towards the
    storage locker Jake if we only have one shot how are we gonna take out all these
    zombies we’re gonna have to play it smart
    let’s forget to the storage locker there should be extra supplies in there that
    we can use to take him out well it’s have to be really stealthy how of
    zombies could see in the dark either so be stealthy is gonna be our strongest
    asset right now right don’t get up already to go you
    ready I’ve got my spear all right when we open this door just gonna be a zombie
    on the other side I’m gonna use my last beer ready just in case what oh I was
    close all right come on let’s move look at the body out high grab your gear

    ammunition oh ho ho yes grab this put in your pocket me to load up look there’s a
    weapon for you looks like it’s a silencer perfect here grab this this is
    great for stealth hold that up a little fine once we have these loaded up we can
    make our way towards the supply locker we should be able to defend ourselves
    now got myself fully locked and loaded here silencer I gotta make it across the
    hall into the second room and there’s a supply locker but the power out the door
    lock system is gonna be offline I’m gonna have to hack into it manually
    which means you have to cover me with this stupid light
    all right follow my lead stay quiet let’s go Jake I don’t like this what we
    got survive this we got to get to the bottom of this zombie virus
    come on the store’s broken down there is open perfect so we’re here
    trying to boot up your best Kevlar helmets food and water weapons alright
    guys we’ve made to the supply locker we’ve gone right here and well I’ve
    geared up fairly well but look we’re gonna stop the zombie virus we need to
    try out that vaccine that the doctor left us that truly works then we’ll well
    be able to reverse the zombies and save the world but the only way we can do
    that is by trapping one now that we have our gear food and water we’re gonna head
    back to the base and regroup grab some food grab some water regain our strength
    reinforce the door and then we can make a zombie trap plus of zombies trapped we
    can administer the serum and hopefully save the world
    alright let’s gather all this stuff water here grab this helmet
    Sami comes at you you’re gonna need it really quiet don’t worry got a crossbow
    this is a silent but deadly G let’s do this
    stop Sami come almost back at pace we can lock up and secure down the base

    don’t you come back to training Joe when you got more lives we get 30,000 likes I
    promise we gonna tell the viewers oh oh dude let’s thing look too awesome it was
    a massive turret that could help us survive against the zombie apocalypse we
    mount that on our base nothing’s getting in we need 30,000 likes 3,000 likes
    alright guys you heard trader Joe if we’re gonna buy that we need 30,000
    likes on this video I think we can come back next video
    and by that turret for our base but all right look we’re gonna get back to base
    camp down I think we need to figure out how to turn the power back on same all
    right let’s get inside stocked up with food water and ammunition all right lock
    the door all right she keeps Ami’s out for now lights
    powers back on must’ve been rolling blackouts these
    blackouts could progressively get worse and worse as the apocalypse continues
    all right I start dividing the gear and you start building this trap as soon as
    possible all right that gear from trader Joe really came in handy that no that’s
    a nice upgrade and check it out I was able to reinforce the base with the time
    I had we’ve got all of our supplies in here weapons hey munition Kevlar helmets
    as well as our food and water we still have as much as I want but has we expand
    this base we should start expanding our supplies I think next up we need to make
    a medical Bay and here when you’re defending the front I’ve stored all of
    our extra ammunition as well as flashlight so if the power goes out we
    grab up from here take out those zombies hitting up our front we’re gonna stop
    this thing we need to build that trap we need to trap ourselves a real zombie I
    have the antidote here now this this is supposed to cure the zombies we’re gonna
    need to get one a trap to use it all right let’s use the duct tape trader
    Joe gave us and start building the trap once the zombies caught up in it
    what minced through this get into the back it’s secure there start building we have our fully functioning zombie
    trap this thing is made out of reinforced cardboard we’ve got a bunch
    of side soon that we can look in to see if we caught the zombie and of course
    the front entrance here so once the zombie enters into the trap it’ll open
    like so he’ll walk in and then the door will shut now this door is not coming
    open this way because it’s got this latch here which prevents it from
    opening outward you can go in but you can’t get out now we just gotta move it
    out front Jake I just realized how are we gonna get the zombie inside the MREs
    we’ve I have some extra food in them we can use as a lure and put it inside the
    trap the zombie will come in to eat and get stuck I’ll go check what we have in
    a storage room eggs strawberry jam that means there’s gotta be something here
    what’s this well it’s bread survival bread okay this
    will be perfect all right I got it some well bread this was part of the MRE this
    isn’t exactly the bread you’d like to eat on a daily basis but it’ll last for
    30 plus years and it’s good enough for zombies we’ll put this inside set this
    up out front and hopefully capture ourselves a zombie
    all right the traps will set up wait oh can you hear that zombies are coming we
    gotta get back inside right now oh it’s get I made it back inside the
    base zombies are still throughout the house but look the trap set up there so
    I think it’s time for us to go to bed if we wake up tomorrow and there’s a zombie
    caught we can try the serum on it and well if that cures the zombie
    we have a cure for the zombie apocalypse but if not we’re gonna need to expand
    the base keep building on not sure what we’ll build next so you might have to
    let us know in the comments but more importantly we need to secure the front
    entrance guys we need those 30,000 likes so we
    can buy that turd from trader Joe we’re still a little low on ammo hold on here
    though for the night all right I think it’s time we get some shut-eye I’ll grab
    first watch alright how many get to bed grab this
    wake me if there’s any trouble we’ll see you guys next time

    August 13, 2019


    previously on Papaji look I think it’s
    time we’ve missed her the serum to that zombie if we didn’t cure him and that
    means we have the cure to the zombie apocalypse if we give this to the zombie
    and it gets bigger it could spread to the rest I mean we can manage them now
    but what if they’re what they’re bulletproof but what if they don’t stop
    when you shoot them or worse what if this were contagious it could make this
    worse or it could work and we could make everything better guys I think it’s
    gonna be up to you should we administered the zombie virus to the
    zombie and potentially save the world if it is a cure or should we not give it to
    them and keep surviving you guys have to decide this video was sponsored by pub G

    we need to use it Logan we were able to pull the viewers and they all think we
    have to try it we have to see if this can actually work is the cure this is
    what I came up with this here it’s a last stop stopping the zombie apocalypse
    if I inject this into the zombie that we have trapped outside and it works we can
    put it into this whole thing but there is still a chance that it’s a trap if
    wrongly used this zombie could transform into something we’ve never seen before
    but I said we’d gear up and go out there and try it it’s our last shot ok I agree
    now listen I’ve gathered all of our animal supplies in case something goes
    wrong I’ve got food water and the rough amount in these packs
    most of it we’re gonna have to leave here if something does go wrong my hope
    is nothing happens we give it to the zombie and we cure everything but if
    something does happen you have to meet me outside I mean me in the backyard and
    don’t look back let’s head out let’s play a little friend another visit all
    right here he is I’ve got the zombie virus see I’m here looking this is our
    only shot at this we only have one how do we know it’s gonna work we don’t
    we’re gonna have to take the risk look the viewers voted and they want us
    to take this risk if we have a chance of curing this we have to take that chance
    even if it’s a slim one you ready okay let’s do this three two one no did I see
    you live she got him like this can’t help he’s alive a dog maybe it didn’t
    work maybe it just killed them how long would it take to work I don’t know what
    I’ve never tried this before can’t solve its breathing or not look maybe there’s
    something oh that didn’t work little get it didn’t
    work my fear came true the serum acted as the counter serum and
    made it stronger did you see yourself those bullets everything I hit it with
    didn’t do anything chief what are we gonna do I don’t know I don’t know he’s
    trapped in there behind that wall look if that virus starts spreading it gets
    the other zombies look practically bulletproof there’s nowhere we can put
    an end to them I can’t believe that happen we should have known better we
    shouldn’t have done that Jake we had to try it’s all we had
    Logan before we can easily soft these zombies with our blasters and a base
    wall did you see that thing a group two times the size
    now with that spreading I don’t know if we stand a chance what are we gonna do
    nothing we can do now so I’m just gonna take over the barrens gonna win we can’t
    stop it we shouldn’t have tried the serum Jake there must be something we
    can do come on man think yeah looking there is something we can do all right
    we can go for one last swim before we get eaten alive at least then zombies
    can’t touch us in water wait zombies can’t touch us in water look at how you
    think it went I’m picky floating box right if we could if we
    could make a Sami base and put it in the middle of the pool if they won’t be able
    to get to us I mean they’ll try to swim and you think a bunch up but I mean we
    might be able to stop them when you have people that at least create some form of
    a barrier it could buy us some time to figure out a new plan key but we gotta
    do this quickly you’re right it looks like a storms picking up – look we don’t
    belong survival gear have packed our bags with a little bit of ammunition and
    food we have first things first though we need to build a floating base and get
    inside then we can figure out our next steps it looks like after giving the
    zombie serum to the zombie it only got stronger the zombie is 2 times as
    powerful and our weapons aren’t doing anything to stop it
    well we have a plan plan right now is to get a floating box for bass bill and
    survive in there against it we have some supplies that I packing his bags and MRE
    can’t a little bit of water and a little bit ammunition it’s not enough to
    sustain us but if we can get in this floating base it should buy us some time
    it’s exactly what we need are you ready to inflate it a little bit let’s try and
    find some supplies around here there should be some extra cardboard if we
    can’t build ourselves a makeshift base we should be able to set sail in the
    middle of the water and survive alright guys so while Logan’s trying to find
    some tape I’m gonna be in charge of fighting the cardboard I made a stash
    back behind the house so I should be able to grab something but by the looks
    of it storms and if it starts raining out here who gets any colder than this
    it’s gonna be hard to survive we gotta get a shelter built and fast all right
    let’s go find our cardboard let’s see we got zombie he’s able to move though it
    doesn’t look like the new infections affected all the zombies so some of them
    I’m still able to take down see if it works on this guy and there’s her
    cardboard perfect alright no we got the tape cardboard let’s start building this
    thing and fast sores picking up okay guys update for you we’ve been
    working on this for a little while now and well it’s coming together we’ve got
    the walls on still no roof zombies would be coming out of it everywhere but you
    able to hold them off we’ve got to get in the water fast not only because of
    the zombies but also it’s so windy it is so and we need to get this thing in the
    water fast all right we’re gonna put on the roof open up the door and jump
    inside and then we can start tallying up her supplies but right now a number-one
    priority is getting this in the water alright the Box Ford is complete we have
    artillery windows and Endor oh no we got another one I’m hearing a
    horde coming this way – alright you start getting the stuff in there I’ll do
    with the zombie here we go wait I got him
    get in there grab over here and get inside we got to get in here and get in
    here quick talking to your board zombies coming
    grab the rest of your gear and let’s jump inside we’ll tally up our stuff
    when we’re in there Jake we’re gonna need to do some reinforcements I’ll do
    this thing’s falling apart especially with that storm coming if you start
    getting too windy in here the whole thing could blow apart all right I’m
    coming in Oh Jake this is not good okay I’ve got some tape all right let’s start
    making repairs and get ourselves settled at least we’ll be safe from zombies for
    now get some of the holes patched up here the winds really throwing us around
    there’s definitely a storm coming we’ll do our best to reinforce the base and
    then we can tally up the supplies we have but right now guys welcome to our
    new home as you guys can see here we patched it
    up to water can’t get inside the wind’s really been picking up though we’ve been
    blowing all around you guys can check out our shooting holes here get a good
    view but if you want to you can of course close them up a like so and we’re
    perfectly safe roadside though we’ve got this nice body water that’s acting as a
    moat so if zombies do try to come this way
    they’ve got to swim through all of that water alright guys so base is looking
    good we’ve gotten everything patched up well as best as we can
    cuz of right now we’re gonna go for your supplies and see what we have to survive
    in here everything we have has to count looks like some sunflower seeds a bit of
    an MRE a bit of another MRE not bad an extra coat if it gets cold we
    got some extra ammo nice we’re gonna need that we’re low on it in this book
    so we’ll know if they were trying to sabotage us for that serum but it’s
    worth keeping maybe noting our experienced Sun and we
    have this food guided lets you know plants are edible I could come in handy
    as well pretty low on food only to Emory’s we’re not gonna last long it’s
    gonna be our number one priority is getting food and defending the space
    against zombies alright let’s divide up the ammo and get ready to get here horde
    coming we’re gonna have to defend this base if we’re gonna stay here here love
    your blaster with ax much as you can and I’m loaded up and ready to go all
    right same here we’ve got a little bit of ammo left over as well it should be
    good to see anything out there still on water Sam okay I like the sound of this

    base we’re gonna need something like that to Joe okay I think he’s trying to
    help us fight the zombies no but buddy buddy you can’t you can’t pick up that
    gun alright that’s that’s too heavy for you what you wanna you want a hug

    virus I’m gonna try and figure out a way to get the UAV online if I can get it
    online and they may be able to look around to see if there’s somewhere else
    we can move to maybe a military base a compound anything that we could fortify

    Woodworker Builds The Perfect Tiny House Boat for Life on the Water

    August 12, 2019


    >>MAT: Hey everyone, we were just driving down the highway and came across this really awesome floating houseboat. So we contacted the builder, Richard, and he agreed to put it in the water for us so we could have a look. He built it all himself by hand. It’s like a tiny floating cabin. It looks tiny, but you’ll be really surprised to see how much he was able to fit in this houseboat There’s a dinette that turns into a bed, a full kitchen with fridge, sink, cooktop, there’s a heater, a full bathroom with a toilet, separate sink and shower, and on top of that there’s a super spacious deck for hanging out and enjoying the surroundings Ever since we saw this boat, we can’t stop imagining how cool it would be to live in this for a whole summer. Just living on the water. So we’re really excited to show you this we’re gonna give you a full tour. Let’s go take a look inside! [Music Playing] So this houseboat is 24 feet long (7.3 m) long and 8.5 feet wide (2.6 m) wide It weighs 5,700 lbs and it’s set up on three aluminum pontoons There’s a gas motor with a 192-liter gas tank at the front. For solar power, there’s a 260 Watt solar panel hooked up to two 6-volt AGM sealed batteries and there’s a 30 lb (13.6 kg) horizontal propane tank used to power the heater, the cooktop, and the hot water heater. So when you come in, this is the whole living area so there’s a little dinette here that converts into a sleeping area. You just remove the leg, lower the table and make your bed [Music Playing] There’s also a bunch of storage underneath the benches like this Over here is a pretty nice and spacious kitchen, there’s a sink, a propane stove, and actually quite a bit of counter space. And over here is the fridge. It’s 4.5 cubic feet, it’s electric and it runs entirely off the solar power system. There’s a ton of storage and there are some nice handmade drawers here For the heater. It’s a little propane Martin heater here. This is a pretty nice feature, too, there’s some open shelving but he added some mesh because things are moving around in the boat quite a bit. Over here is the roof vent that runs off the solar power system also to get some good air circulation and prevent it from getting too hot in here. All the LED lights are also running off solar power. And this is the little dining area. There are some cup holders here and some storage for a few things here if the boat’s rocking and it won’t move around and believe it or not even though this space is tiny, there’s a full bathroom with a toilet and a shower. So it’s just a dry toilet, dry composting toilet. And in the same space, there’s a small shower. There’s also a separate sink and then the floor is made of wood slats and the water drains through the wood slats into the greywater system. And if you’re taking a shower, you just close the curtain all around to cover the door and the toilet. [Music Playing] The sink in the kitchen, the sink in the bathroom and also the shower all run off a 12-volt pump and they all drain into a custom greywater filtration system that Richard designed. So apparently here in Quebec you’re allowed to dump your greywater (if you’re on a boat) directly in the body of water that you’re on. Richard thought it was important to filter the greywater before dumping it so he actually custom-built a greywater filtration system. It’s basically a big charcoal filter that purifies the water before letting it drain. There’s a 56-liter freshwater tank but you can also flip a switch and draw water directly from the lake or a river that you’re on. For example if you want to take a shower without emptying your freshwater tank, you just flip that switch and take your shower like that. [Music Playing] It’s cool that there’s a bunch of windows in here, you can get a really nice view from pretty much every angle. You can open a few of them so you can get some nice air flow. There’s also the big patio doors at the front and a really nice touch is that he put some small glass panels at the edge here and it’s just a really nice touch gives it a cool effect. You’ll notice all the woodwork, all the cabinetry, the beams, the ceiling, everything has been made by hand by Richard. He’s actually a woodworker, a professional woodworker. So you can tell that everything’s beautifully crafted and made with a lot of care. For the wood, he used mostly white cedar which is one of the lightest woods in the world and it’s great to use on a boat because it doesn’t rot like other types of wood. And one of the coolest things about this mini floating house is the huge patio door leading onto a deck Right now, this boat is kind of set up more as a fishing boat, but he’s actually planning on building one that’s more of a home so there’s gonna be some couches on the outside and it’ll be set up a little bit more just for hanging out. There’s also an awning that you can set up for shade and protect against the rain. [Music Playing] So many years ago when we started trying to figure out what we wanted to do, if we wanted to live in a tiny house or a camper van or an RV or a sailboat. The sailboat was always one of our favorite options but we hadn’t really considered a houseboat like this on pontoons and one of the advantages to this as opposed to a sailboat I guess is that you don’t need to learn how to sail and your living space is above the water so you would have a lot more light. It just seems like a nice living space. So if you’re interested to learn more about this boat and what Richard’s working on you can check out the link to his website, it’s going to be in the description of this video.
