I have done that! R/C IS the only way to do this, without any cables or other stuff. But yes, water IS NOT SCALE and it just "don't cut it" for being "realistic". OK, now what?

Woodie

Hi all,
of course you could simplify the drive - Sprockets top and bottom and chain drive between.

You could model it at low tide?

Now what would be the challenge in that? :bg:

To successfully model something that looks impossible takes an inspired kind of lunacy :Crazy:

The methodology goes something like:-
L::bang::bang::Crazy::!::w::2t::glad:
but perhaps with a few more iterations. ;)

I'd prefer not to add the complication of making a wave machine generating a Force 12 sea state if I had to model this one.:w:
