Default The Gato lives.

A few photos of easy battery recharging terminals with a FMA Cell Pro 4 set up only for A123 LIPO4 cells. 2 cells run everything. I am still waiting for a P B ON _ OFF switch with a rubber boot to seal the switch insides.

The conning tower is held in place with magnets at each end. On the under side of the main deck.
I will Drill out the top of the deck under the Conning Tower to get a neutral buoyancy level.
The orange pill bottle is the electrical water tight container. Batteries, ESC, receiver and a resettable fuse for any excessive drain on the batteries. It opens at 4 amps. Then cools off to conduct again. No need to bring boat in.
