Thanks for the comments boys!

Three mounts down, two to go. Battery & receiver. I made a new wheelhouse vent too.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks gents. They always start out clean until the wires get added.

I got a couple of things done over the holiday. Battery tray done, coaming done. I put the battery as close to center as I could. Couldn’t lay it down flat because the hull listed way too much. Now I need to figure out how to fuse & switch the ESC/motor in a tidy manner.
Hired some deckhands too.

What are those two German Pineapple looking things?

Deckhands look great, where did you source them?

Fuse holder is kinda bulky. Could always use a spaded mini fuse if it gets to be cumbersome in there.

The pineapple things are the contacts for the gray fuse holder.

The Deckhands come from Industria Mechanika. Sasha might look good on the deck too.

I made a fuse holder from 45° solderless connectors for the Veco ESC. Thanks for jarring my memory Tom.

Thanks Charlie.

Got a bitt made today. The top is shaped from an over-sized steel screw, the rest is made from a brass tube, rod, and washer. To fasten it to the deck I'll glue a chunk of plywood under the deck, drill a hole, fill the body of the bitt with a 10-32 screw, and throw a body washer and nut on it. Just need to get it soldered together and slap a coat of black paint on it first.

I like that design, will make for good towing, as the line can swing from side to side. On the bow, I tapped the kit bitt, for 6-32, (that is what fits the bore). I then installed 2, 1'' long 6-32 SS set screws, for attaching, and reinforcing. I installed it on a 1/4'' riser block, to make it easier to access. I don't know what you have in mind for the bow, thought might help. Charlie
