Well I wanted an excuse to build an automata this competition. The music category allowed me to build something that can move to the beat, or in this case, swig and sway to the old sea shanty 'The Drunken Sailor'. Do watch the video for full impact.

Quoting Alex Sonny I saw the video on flickr and this is honestly one of the funn(i)est creations I've seen in some time!
Thanks Alex getting a smile out of you all was kept me going when the weight of my sailor kept pulling my MOC to pieces with every turn of the handle.

Quoting David Roberts Great fun and a nice action in the video too.
He's a little jerky, but that's what happens when you put a lot of weight on axels and cranks. I'm feeling inspired by the learning curve on this one. The mechanism is mechanically simple, but the weight and angle issues certainly weren't,
