I really like your backyard. That's what I'm trying for. Unfortunately I live in an apartment so my jungle creating is limited.
It's fun to look for all of those props in Southern California, isn't it? Kelly Marine in San Pedro is a good place to find cowl vents if you're looking to add one to your awesome backyard. You can also find heavy duty rope and old fish floats. They probably have some good ideas for your new hand crank. kellymarine.com
While in San Pedro be sure to get a burger at Utro's. That place is filled with plenty of vintage nautical decor to borrow ideas from.

So for the past 5 years I've been looking for a easy answer to making lights resemble those at disneyland. Specifically adventure land and pirate flickering. I've been through the home made flicker circuit that works but doesn't quite cut it. I finally found something that works. Please check out the following website.

Plug and play lighting manipulater that you can dial in. The plug in unit can power 100w total but they have units that have several individual leads. Either way if your looking for real looking candle or generator lighting look no further. Look at my youtube for a example on my sign. Thanks as always.

Good to see you posting in your thread again, TLS. Nice job on the lights. What did you decide to do with your awesome windlass?

That's really cool, but the way both lights are flickering in unison really freaks me out.

I think that means I need to buy one of the three output units.

You've done a fantastic job.

Did you make the signs?

You should add a hidden Lincoln into your mix somewhere.

How about a Pirate Gang Plank across your deck to run your hose to the pool through...just a thought. Wow...your fauna is outtasite!!! Pretty soon you will have to pass out "E" tickets for those entering your backyard.
