    Hi Ken, sorry I have not been on for a while after getting back from Florida, I seemed to have caught Covid, a mild case but I was not up to checking the forums. I'm glad to see things progressing for you.
    I'm hoping I will test negative by Wednesday for Covid so i can go to my parents for Thanksgiving, hoping you have a good one.

    From Wikipedia...

    In the spring of 1954, fitted with a "dummy" rear fin, Redfish played the part of Jules Verne's Nautilus in the Walt Disney film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea where the afterdeck of the Nautilus was constructed on the deck of the Redfish for a scene where the captain puts visitors out on the deck while the boat submerges.[5] In September 1957, with deck and armament modifications, she played the part of the fictional submarine USS Nerka in the 1958 motion picture Run Silent, Run Deep. She capped her film career by making several appearances in the popular black-and-white television series The Silent Service.

    When attacking the Japanese convoy with the encounter with Japanese destroyer, they did use a model submarine, at one point it looked like it was up on plane. And you can see the runaway torpedo being pulled by a string/wire.

    I am getting there Jake. Yesterday I was able to hop one footed down the stairs leaning against the walls. Going up I had to go up on my knees, a bit disconcerting. Tuff part is making sure I don't use my foot. I was able to work on the plans for the next party boat, so that makes me happy.

    Watching Run Silent, Run Deep. Nice to see a movie using a real submarine of the time.

    Ken, I know your pain, but for me I had it kind of better. I had 3 levels in my lower back fused, and couldn't go up to my hobby room for a while. After about 3 weeks, when the medication was down, I figured out that I could get upstairs by side-stepping my way up. It totally sucks. I hope you make full recovery and can get back to a normal active life.

We tried yesterday going halfway down stairs with one foot, 8 steps, was a struggle, but doable. Today will try all the way down and see what my shop and office looks like. Hopefully I plan to sit in my office and start drawing up my next party boat. In the meantime I have video from Groton and Subfest that has been unseen and I am trying to edit and post some of that. I'd also like to make a thread on that little y-cable replacement with a step by step process.

    It gets boring sitting around on the computer mostly and I'm constantly plan tired. Have books to read but not into it.

    Serling was so, so much more than the Producer and Writer for TZ. He wrote the screen-play to many major motion pictures: Requiem for a Heavy-Weight, Seven Day's in May, Planet of the Apes...

    That guy was a Machine!

    The Rat Patrol? F**K. A bunch of non-actors with an excuse to dune buggy in the Mojave! I liked 'Combat' only as a kid despite my uncle telling me "I was in Italy, there are no eucalyptus trees in Europe!" (plenty of eucalyptus Southern California where it was filmed).

    I hated and never forgave Quinn Martin productions after they sacked Robert Lancing thinking he was too 'old and hard to work with' - Lancing was the only one taking the role seriously! They replaced with that non actor cardboard cutout Paul Burke. Worst actor ever in everything he did. I stopped watching.

    Get back into the shop and as Sargent Dave ordered Private Pile! LOL.
