Zwarte Zee Setup help
I have purchased the Zwarte Zee (billing kit) and want to convert it
I am a flyboy and not a water rat and wish to know what I need to do
to keep the water out, or to a minimum and what I should do to keep
the radio gear dry.
Does anyone have a piccie of their setup that i could use.
Any other hints also welcome (keep it clean...)
Thanks In advance for your help
Blueskies (or in this case smooth sailing)

If it is the ABS version then no problems - just put in a standard prop
shaft etc. The wood version is more difficult - you need to first ensure
thathe hull is waterproof - You can line the inside with skinning epoxy
thinned down - it will then soak in to the wood- once dry (overnight) fill
the hull with water and look for leaks. Fix them before going on.
Graupner used to do a prop shaft assy for this boat but if it's not
available buy one or go to AsTec Models who can supply to order....
www.astecmodels.co.uk . For the rudder it is difficult. I built the rear
most deck fitting (the little gear cover) as a removable piece of deck then
mounted the rudder stock under it with the actuatore on top. The servo motor
etc was all in the main hull.
