    Scratch built model rowing boat. Built during Covid19 lockdown from salvaged Oak and Mahogany.

    Propulsion by oars only. Two servos on each oar to provide the rowing action. Two channels used on the TX to control rowing - the equivalent of 'throttle' and 'rudder'. On board PIC microprocessor converts throttle and rudder commands into oar movements. Will row forwards and backwards as well as turning.

    The two figures are 'bionic' upgrades to Action Man. Bionic Bill the rower has two servos installed, one to provide forward/backward rocking syncronised with the rowing action. The second servo provides head rotation, controlled from the TX. His younger brother Ben has three servos installed to provide twisting of the body, arm raising and head turning. These are controlled from a second on board PIC to provide either the fishing rod control sequence or the smoking sequence. Smoke is produced from a smoke generator built from an e-cig and air pump.

    Accessories on board include fishing rod, landing net, bucket, lunch and radio. The radio plays a selection of sea shanties controlled from the TX.

    Build time - 6 months.

    This is the best Rowboat i have ever seen.
    I thoroughly enjoyed following the build log from start to Finnish.
    The skills and technology involved is absolutely amazing.
    This is a model to be truly proud of.

    Congratulations Graham on a really fantastic model.

    Great video Graham - you have made a superb job all round - one has to marvel at all the features on the boat - smoking pipe & fishing are really something different - Congratulations.

    Thanks Red,

    It was a fun build and is a popular attraction at the lake. I get lots of comments from members of the public whenever Bill is out rowing.
