Sorry for the late reply, that makes sense.
I did manage to get it done before christmas in the end. The boat is functional albeit a few minor issues to resolve.
Really appreciate your assistance and when I get time I will probably upload pics of my boat as another one made.
Cheers and it is a great boat boat design. Even though I put a 1.5mah battery and heavy 50A ESC (over 100grams) in my boat, the weight doesn't seem to be a problem. It absolutely screams along! I'm waiting for a lighter weight 30A ESC to arrive in the post.
