CRAZY GIRL..ITS MY ROWING BOAT....
« on: January 17, 2011, 10:07:42 AM »

Good morning Friends...
Once upon a time, there was a beautiful woman,a warrier princess,named Rathikrishna,  lived in the Candy Ruby Red Island,in God's own Country, in India.
by some reasons she was unable to marry one.so she worshiped the Soorya Devan,(Sun God),for years...then one day Sun God appeared in front of Rathi,
and asked..
Soorya:-  " hey Girl..now i am pleassed in you, what is the intention of your worship..?"
Rathi:-       "Oh my Lord..i need a Baby for myself...now i am alone..if its not, i will die here..."
Soorya:-  " No...dont be sad..i will give you a girl child...but i have a condition, that you must agree with..."
Rathi:-      "Sure..indeed.."
Soorya:-   "Here its too hot...so my baby is too adicted to Ice creams..she always looks for ice creams..,
   So, you must find a way to feed her ice creams when in need..."
Rathi:-      Lord..how can i manage it..?  i do not have any ice cream vendors near me..."
Soorya:- " Dont worry..i can see an ice cream vendor near to your river base, from your home...to reach there i will give you a boat with         some peculiarities.."
Rathi:-      "Peculiar..?"
Soorya:-   "yes...its a boat finished in Sunrise Orange colour,weight less , all carbon composite..!!, stiff, strong, but much light...and yes,          it is assisted with
   a sets of Power Assisted Oars..!!!.. so if you want to row it, you can simply grab the handle, and the sensors in the handle will detect the
   effort,so it will assist you hydraulically..so you do not have any excersion...my baby very much like the boating along with ice cram eating..!!!
   So you can simply take her to there when she asks for the ice creams...and yes..never forget to sing the ever classic rowing song..
   the row...row...row the boat..so she will be pleassed..."
Rathi:-     "Oh..cant we fix an engine on it...?  or an electric motor..?  i am an expert in boat making.."
Soorya:-  "Yes i know..but my baby never like the engine noise..so if you agree i will agree...and time is running ,i have ample of things to do..."
Rathi:-       "agreed..."
Soorya:-  "So when you reach back home, you will see the boat at the bridge of your grand home...and baby will there in the boat...the name of the craft
   will be CRAZY GIRL, as i feel like that after seeing you..."


then God disappeared...Rathi went back home..she took the girl...when the baby saw ,Rathi, she started to cry..Maaa ikeemmm...
so Rathi started to row the boat...she kept the cute baby on the cushioned box over the platform..and started to sing...
Row..Row..row the boat...gently down the river...merly..merly...
then baby started to laugh....
                                                                                                     from Tale of two Angels...

all we run behind big ships, speed boats,and tugs..etc...etc...but none of us will think about a rowing boat...why..? its clear...the toughness to find, or to make a rowing mechanism..its true, i was loooking for such mechanism,for me..so i searched..but none of them wasnt easy to make, and some of them was actuated by three and four servos for one side..and it need a circular movements of control stick, all with a good timing...sooo messy....

so i smoked my brain a lots...and started to trace on my drawing board with a hot coffee...as my Maa's filter coffee inspires me..i found a solution for my worry.

I seached for a good doll around me in all shops..but none of them was in scale, some was 2 foot long..after some disappoinment, i got three dolls, from a car goods seller, as key chains...those three was almost in 1:30 th scale..

so i started with the longest doll, as you see here...

after pasting the head and hands on the shaft, i waited for a day...

after the setting time of the glue, i added some more reinforcements on it...

and i placed it over a toy gear box, with a reworked motor for 6 volts....

i fixed two aluminium brackets at the tips of the each hand, to fix the oars..

the oars was made out of foam board..and oar rods from brass welding rods...

the rudder set up is conventional, as the craft is too slow in nature....it made out of foam board, and driven by a toy gear box, via a walkman belt...

i added lots of weight all over the back,of the craft, to retain the momentum,aqquired by the oars...if not, the craft will stall...and jerks,insted of a foreward  motion...

you can see all mechanicals in this instructional video....

and actual running of the craft here....

    Another BRILLIANT model.  :-))  Like the arm movement although I would soon get tired rowing like that.

    What next, a diving submarine maybe.   O0

Rathi I have to ask this, have you built a time machine? the speed you seems to turn out these wonderful models is amazing, I still have a pile of bits waiting to get fitted, a mountain of balsa waiting to be marketed out and cut to shape and can't find the time to do it at the moment, yet it seems you produce a stunning model every few days. I raise my hat to you.  :-))

 " Like the arm movement although I would soon get tired rowing like that." Hai Wet..i told you its not an ordinary oar..nowadays Gods are insisting all sophisticated enginering, to promote their effort...as the population is increased its hard to help all through divine ways..so it was assisted with Power Assisted Oars....(Hi..HI..)  so its not a problem to row...(apologize..only for a jolly...)..
