I have been out for about a month and a half, but I'm back. I had heart issues and had to have a quintuple(5) bypass. It happened when I tried to use FrankinMower for the first time. I didn't even make one loop of the yard before realizing I needed to go to the hospital. Test after test things went from bad to worse to finally having to immediately have surgery. But everything went well and I'm back. This video doesn't have much animation to it except for people passing my security camera. Just a run down of upcoming projects and a request for project ideas.
I know I've been out of pocket for a spell. Mostly fishing, but also dealing with a medical issue. Well I finally went to the doctor and found that there are some issues with my heart. They sound very optimistic but always with the potential for death in every discussion which doesn't make me very optimistic. At any rate I hope I'll be fine and get back to my projects and filming.
I've had to order some power packs for the Johnson, and have been prepping the Glastron for carbon core. However there have been talks about selling the boat and buying a new one. That way we can do more videos on bait making, fishing and other projects. The boat seems to be a never ending and more time spent making sure it gets back to shore. I did do a lawn mower Frankenstein project but I didn't think you all would find that very interesting. Basically throwing an 8hp motor on a 19in mower. I have also done some prop swaps that were uneventful. Everything that I have tried to film has been laden with pauses and complete breaks. If I make it thru this life changing event, I will definitely be making more videos again. They say I'll be out of the game for 6 weeks. Maybe I can dictate instructions to my kids to get these other little projects done for the fun stuff.
We'll see. I hope to make more content for you'all.
Upgraded my dingy water filled headlights with LED's. I may have made a mistake on getting the black ones. Now the truck looks like it has black eyes or at the least the headlights look like they're still full of water. I'm sure I'll get over it. I still need to do my instrument lights and looks like one of my front marker lights went out. I was looking for LED lights for another project and stumbled upon these 4x6's for tractors.
I purchased the headlights here.
I took the boat out Saturday, but had some issues with the crank trigger not moving freely. I replaced the new teflon bearing with the old one and now it works flawlessly. I have a new winch strap and shift counter level coming to repair the forward control box. So in the free time I made a box to cover the trolling motor batteries. I'll pick up two more seat poles this week. I found that it's cheaper to stack seat poles than to buy one 23 inch seat pole. Go figure.
