For sure, Toots was probably the finest chromatic harmonica player that ever lived. I play the more common used diatonic and have been playing semi pro for most of my life. Great links. Thanks. Enjoyed them very much.

I love hearing harmonica. One of my favorite songs with a bit of harmonica is Willie Nelson Georgia on My Mind. Harmonica at 2:12.

Here is a short video on my latest hobby. These remote controlled boats are built completely from scratch. They are not kits. As an example, the hull is made from door skin, the same material on a hollow core door, and the sails are hand cut and sewn from bed sheets. I was raised in Florida and spent a great deal of time on the water. I had sail boats and raced a Hobie 18 around Florida for two years. Now that I am too old and too beat up to sail a real boat, I am going to satisfy my yearning to sail in a smaller scale. I will be building the boat with the bear. The hull is four feet long. With everything being fabricated by hand I expect it will take some time to complete, but I am not in a rush.

Here are a couple of pictures of my newly built work bench with the boat plans. Note the boxes of ammo holding down the plans.

That sure looks interesting, Ridge.
Other than for the rudder, does it also use a servo for the boom and a sail winch?

A great thread here.

While I actually dislike the music discussed I enjoy the conversations and discussion about it. This really is a wonderful group and I thank all of you. I come here many times a day. I hope we always have this freedom and flexibility to chat. I learn a great deal here but I come here for this.

Gunjunkie....you're right. There is one servo for the rudder and one servo for the three sails. Unless you do something like a bear turning his head. Gary Webb, who designed and built the Irene has another servo in the bears head so it can turn as he gives input. He also had another to operate the forward hatch where the girl popped up. Gary is a boat builder by trade and has turned his love of boats into designing classics RC sail boats. There are other videos on YouTube under "sailtails."

Mac you would enjoy watching some of the build videos. They are very interesting. I want to go to the shop and work on it some more today, but the temp is only 40 degrees......

Only here can we go from two pistols, to music, to model boats in one thread.....

That boat project looks very good. Much better than R/C planes where all your work can smash in an instant.............You have to think of a name for the stern? Just not "Titanic"......

In my twenties I had an R/C German Panther tank, about 18 inches long. It wouldn't shoot, darn it, but you could turn the turret. The suspension was the toughest assembly.

Ridge, the harmonica player for Wille Nelson has always been Mickey Raphael, a true artist, the very epitome of good taste. I use him as an example for my harmonica students. By coincidence, I have a sister who lives in California who knows him as a friend. Has had dinner with him a couple times when he was doing a show in Vegas.
