I assume the intake tube is nyoprean, drill the hole for the tube smaller than the tube. Heat the tube in hot water force it through the hole more than needed, then let cool and cut back to what you need, the tube should seal itself, but for added protection, on the inside, use rtv sylicone, witch will remain flexable, I've not tried it my self, but I've seen it done, and it worked, but there maybe something better out there, this is just a suggestion.

Looks nice! Did you do the paint job?

As for water cooling pickup, I used a brass tube in the rudder strut. I drilled a hole directly forward in the transom above the water line to enter the interior. I drilled a hole on the side of the hull above the water line for the discharge tube. I sealed the tubes in the hull with slow CA glue.









PS: Don't use CA accelerator on this hull. Last picture shows why!

I just added my own brass tube. I don't know what any CEN part number is but Steve at Offshore surely will. My esc is an Mtroniks I got from Hobby People.
