                  Thank you all for your replies.
                  Enclosed you should find some pictures of my radio controled boat. It's a Riva Ariston from 1967. It took me approximatly 600 hours to build it.
                  Hope you will appreciate.

                    Absolutely Stunning. What a beautiful piece of work! How big is it?
                    I went to the Geneva boat show in 1980 and I saw several of these beautiful boats built in Italy. Here in the US they are mostly older vintage and used on the fresh water lakes.
                    Thank you for the pictures.

                      I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                      If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                      The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                      I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
