Hi Jesup I`ve been watching for updates also .I see you are having picture problems []..This is what I use, it`s excellent and simple program ,plus it`s free.. I Want to see your pics also..Try this program,I set my export resize to 540 pixels, and,Image Quality to, 90 % custom.With those settings your photos will load here very quickly and the size is respectable for the rest of RCU to view..Play with the Slider controls to make your photo Brighter ,correct Color Crop a little section from your original section for close-ups,Etc.It dosent take long to figure this progy. out..[8D] You`ll get a picture like this with those settings,and saving to Export before you upload here( less than 82 KB).Have problems still, give me a shout.. OK..Dave

Looking good
What's the motor size? Also what are the dimensions?
And here's a tip for later on in the build, the rudders should be 4" to 5" apart.

Looking forward to pics!

Here's a pump that would work. I know there are others out there.

The Ram pumps work great in the scale ships and tugs, it will not keep up with the water that you will get in your hull, with it being completely open. Best to have a sealed floor with drains on the transome.
