You will be very pleased with using brushless thrusters and a ship that size needs them. Do you happen to live near a lake or large body of water?

I'm near St. Paul, MN, so plenty of ponds, lakes, and rivers nearby. I'm also about 3 hr drive from Duluth, MN (Lake Superior) I actually am hoping to someday run this model in Superior.

Haven't been on here in a while. Update on the Saginaw. She has been in the water for test runs and a video (part 3) can be found on the Edina Model yacht club website. The conveyor on the unloading boom is now working too. I'll try to post some pictures soon.
