Hi,

Without seeing it I would surmise it is an Engel Patrick Henry. Static diver. I own a couple of Engels subs, very good quality and not cheap to buy.

What did you want to know about it?
Pete

The directions are in German, I was told the guy that owned it installed the electronics, took it out and it sunk flooding electronics, ruining them, they look fine. Ballast is my first question, this thing weights over fifty pounds just seems like too much, second what voltage do they use for battery. After the one and only launch it was never used again. I posted a picture of it on the back of my truck. I found Engel name on instructions. This might be over my head, I brought a Kyosho sail boat with it, simple, more my style.

I have the same sub for sale. The english instuctions say " use only a 6 volt, 7.5 or 10 amp/hr sealed lead acidbattery"
