fully operational scale row boat

by Ralph Pappas

Row boat. Experimented/ tested on 3 mechanical prototypes to refine into final model. Oars run in a flat topped elliptical pattern. Left /right are independent in forward and back. And run in unison at varying speeds
utilizing only one continuous rotating motor and one servo to activate manual transmission. I used a “Dreamboat“ theme and figure from another row boat video I saw a few years back but surpassed the scale, proportions and movement that I saw in that video. I loved every minute of this project and very proud of what is such an elusive and difficult form of mechanics. Would you like me to send you a video?
Please respond with information of where to send it.
