In Canada looking for a waterproof (hobby) motor to build a R.O.V.

I am planning a project to build an R.O.V (as a hobby - nothing
serious), and wish to find low-cost electric motors that can be used
underwater.

Alternatively, I also would welcome any advice on how to waterproof a
standard electric motor for underwater use, to drive a propeller.

How powerful a motor would be needed?

I would prefer a supplier in Canada

Thanks

Brian

Practically any matched set of motors will do, since you are operating via cable, your power source can be shore based.


Tim Smalley has built one, and may be someone you can contact for more info.

Sub committee can be a good resource

Another amature builder used bilge pumps

A student built ROV

By the way, I would be using this in saltwater as well.

Thanks
