    As usual, the first step is shaft and rudder system installation positioning.Due to the relatively large size,so use the 5MM shaft,The shaft tube use own bearings and stainless steel .pipes,the rudder with the Ark Original rudder.

    ARKMODEL original driver is 550 with gearbox,it's a mature power but the noise is too large...To drag propeller diameter is 54MM,I think that the 550 motor is not enough,so I purchased 775 motor.

    The fiberglass hull have a feature, hull need to add support, Otherwise opening will be increasing, This has been a little expansion. Fortunately, the hull is relatively thick, both sides of the holes, countersunk head screws and wood pulled.
