      Hi Dave,

      According to my handy-dandy little Google converter, one euro is currently worth 1.2765 US dollars, so that exergia pop-pop boat would cost 16.5945 dollars— just a rough estimate I worked out in my head of course! :-)

            Silly really, these go up and proper stuff  like CAD software goes down.
             
            In education you can have one seat of the latest AutoCAD (Normally £4000+)
            for what these people charge for there Stirling Engine.

              Frank & all,

              Thanks for the pat on the back. You're the one who most desrves it.

              I don't believe that for a minute. The way things are going it will be Chinese "PLASTIC". How many transactions take place each day without actual cash changing hands?

              As to the R/C CLERMONT:

              At this point you know almost as much as I do. I was contacted by the builder indirectly the "sleeping" Saugerties Fulton Steamboat Foundation's Website. I went into the E-mail system and had all E-mails forwarded to my Hotmail Acct. I have rec'd approx a dozen E-mails so far, all of which I have personally answered. The CLERMONT builder asked for drawings etc. which I have sent him. I keep you posted as i learn more.

                Hi Pete & all,

                You're probably right about the plastic, because Chinese manufacturers have learned how to make plastic out of bamboo. If you see a few typos, it might be because I'm currently engaged in a boom box battle with the black folks downstairs, who play gangsta-rap-crap 24-7. When it gets loud enough to shake the floor I retaliate with a stack of classical masterpieces. At the moment the 1812 Overture is approaching the point where they orginally fired cannons onstage! I started practicing this strategy on a pair of rednecks who lived there several years ago, after reading about a McDonalds drive in that started blasting classics outside to break up congregations of teenagers that used the parking lot as a place for their get-togethers. It seems to be working, because I don't hear the gangsta-rap boom booms any more, possibly as a result of the synthesized cannon fire.

                Best wishes to all, old suddenly gone deaf Frank

                  I have a house in the suburbs, and I've found that working outside with
                  the AM blasting Rush Limbaugh or Hannity also works...fewer 'gangsta's'
                  and they stick around less time with the two dope-smokin' teenagers that
                  live next door. Their mom doesn't seem to see it, I sure can SMELL it.
                  I've already been in one shouting match with their mom, expects me to
                  tell her, and NOT call the police....t'ain't gonna happen that way.
                  :-)

                  The rest of the neighbourhood seems fine, but *I* have the local
                  schmucks next to me...
