Hello hds!

Can you explain a bit more about your technic with nylon? Is it as solid as fibre glass?

Thanks.

Sure.
Sneak to the wardrobe of your wife/girlfriend/... and reuse i.e. sneak a pair of nylons.

Test with 2+ layers. The epoxy soaked nylon will be very strong,durable and a bit elastic so it will not crack. With 4 layers as i did use for testing the hull is so strong you could use it for a canoo.

Bonus point: Your cohabitee will participate in the project that way.

Don't let yourself get caught ...

Dad brudder can be helped.

Access to the shipyard is limited in the moment. Don't know if it can be reastablished. (note 1)

Back in the stinktank:
1) Make the brushless motors watertight so they can operate directly in water. Need lathe for this (see note 1)

2) Find a solution for the cutout areas of the hull. I like to stick to the nylon hull but this creates a problem with the cutouts. In the moment i like to create lasercut (note 1) patches and stuck them into an cutted area of the nylons. See picture which tells more than 100 words of my mumble stumble ...
Well, ideas welcome ! Let your ideas drip in ...
