Well, our annual friends and family Halloween party was this past Saturday night. We had over 130 people come for hot dogs, chips, drinks and then after dark a stroll through the dreaded Haunted Forest. Everyone had a great time. One of the favorite animated props this year was my build of Creepy Creations' pirate rowboat. Everyone wanted to know how I came up with the idea for the mechanics of this thing. Well, of course I told them the truth, that I am a mechanical genius and know everything about this stuff. Well, most everyone at the party knows that I have never had an original idea in my life so I actually finally had to fess up and tell them my friend Creepy Creations (you are my friend, right. You are not going to sue me or anything for stealing your idea are you?) had a tutorial on how to make this. Anyway here it is if anyone want to see how mine turned out. When Wicked Grandma first saw it she said it was too good. "A pirate rowboat has to be leaking" So I added a small fountain pump to the build to make the boat have a leak. Like all the other props in the Haunted Forest, it looks really cool at night with low light on it but unfortunately I don't have a video camera that will capture video in low light so I only have this daytime video that is good enough to post.
