Sea trials are tomorrow. Have the ESC, cooling, magnetic hatch and rudders in. Second image shows the water pickup / venturi and a couple 4-40 threaded inserts which are sealed from the inside. This will allow me to experiment with various fins to get the boat to track how I like it. Looks like the motor will have plenty of power. It started to move across dry grass! I hope the ESC gets enough water without a pump. I don't need any complexity. Lighting will be wired up after the boat checks out. It will need a small electronics panel and a couple switches...
