Well it all fits. Stuffed it in but it fits

Alright. Still need to get another coat or two on the very bottom but this is how it's turning out. This is clear coating or "gel coating" as they call it. It's a 2 part clear coat or cast epoxy than you water it down 50/50 with high percent alcohol or denatured alcohol.
pain stakingly timely and also take a lot of effort and work. Patience too if you don't have.

Need a dob of silicone on the top deck when I hook the motor up. About it. I might add some to the holes on the plastic reciever and esc container too to eliminate any chaff.
some velcro is needed for the battery and water box. About it. Than the power!
muahahaha

boats done. Haven't floated it yet. Haven't ran it yet. The esc I'm having a hard time calibrating.
Working lot lately so haven't taken it to the local rc shop yet.

Looks really good. Don't get your digits in that prop. I put a shroud on mine. Call me a wuss if you want.

No I get it. I was gonna make one but already so much effort into this. A lot of work making a model rc boat. Even more a wood one. Even more waterproofing that wood! Lol.
I might make out of chicken coop wire and some metal rod. Might be square and ugly but will be functional. Fit, form, and function. Lol

The one I was gonna make would work but would make changing props diffricult. It would be permanent and I need something removable. Ty bud! Lots of work.
