1928 Buick Country Club Coupe 1st Start in 50 Years
My Great Grandfather bought this car in 1929 from the Buick dealer in
Perryman, Md. with only a few hundred miles on it. He paid $900 for it, a
hefty sum considering most new cars at the time were under $400. He was the
last one to hear it run until today. By the way, I could not tell while
looking through the camera if the lights were on or off.
How to dock a single-engine inboard/outdrive boat stern-first
Single-engined, inboard/outdrive boats are acknowledged to be the most
difficult type of boat to dock in reverse, stern-first, in a marina berth.
Here are a few ideas which might make it less of a challenge. We use the
low-speed "steer - then gear" method, plus a piece of ribbon, a
non-electronic Rulan helm indicator and a simple length of rope.
..........Oh yes, and we take our time.
No boat was harmed in the making of this video.
Homemade Minimost Hydroplane Boat
This is a video about the Minimost boat that I built in 2007. This sort of
boat is the predecessor of the jet ski. Many such boats were built by
youngsters in the 1950's and 1960's from plans in Science and Mechanics and
other do-it-yourself magazines. In this video the boat is being powered by
a 1958 18hp Evinrude outboard with a 12 pitch prop that pushes it at about
My briggs & stratton powered boat running at sea
Finally got the boat on the water and running great! Used it all last
summer, but i did some mods to it this summer, like the stearing system
that comes from a old Ariens lawn tractor. The engine is a Briggs &
Stratton 8hp from a 1977 Gilson snow blower, and it runs perfect!

history. What's more, each of today's Donzi's has been designed and is
built with the company's original mandate of outstanding performance,
quality construction, and enduring style. Over 40 years since its birth,
Donzi continues to expanding its horizons and build on its hard-earned
reputation as an innovator. Whether winning tournaments with the acclaimed

its 1964 predecessor, or pushing the performance envelope with its new ZR

Some things never change!
Crazy Capizzi on his home made jet boat "Jet Jon"
Hey, my friends call me Crazy Capizzi. This is what you get when you cross
a john boat with a jet ski! Too Fast! This is a $300 97 tighr shark jet ski
motor and a $25 12' aluminum boat. it probably did about 40mph in about 2
seconds. I built it in one weekend. Unfortunately once it got up to top
speed it would make a hard turn. I think it needed the jet to face up more.

Redneck Jet Ski (Lawnmower drives on water)
We built this from an old lawn mower using 55 gallon drums for the wheels.
it worked pretty well until the welds broke on the barrels and the rear
axle housing broke in half.
