The blue casings are custom made by me as well and are completly watertight .They are able to be removed from the hull since the hull is flexable enogh to be able to acomodate the 3 inch diamiter PVC caps.
The rudder and dive plains are modified with a stainless steel shaft instaed of the plastic ones,very importatnt mod for a sub of this size.Rods are attached with stearing horns.

The ballast system will allow for static diveing and preciese hovering underwater operations just like the full size subs do.The tank is not presurized by the pump and is vented out as it fills with water,then when water is removed air is supplied by the casing and and in that way the tank is never presurized.Once on the surface the casing is vented to the atmosphere and ready to dive again.2 one way aquarium valves automaticly control water and air flow in the tank.

Notice that the tank has the battery inside ,I might use 2 gellcells 12 volt units,placed there for a very important reason,center of gravity is not disturbed while the sub dives,all that is done is more wheight or ballst is added to affect the subs weight and she dives level and true.Also baffles are installed every 2 inches to insure no sloshing occurs as divingangles are imposed on thesub or on the surface in rugh weather.

Also the hull is not permanatly glued together but by useing Goop it can be split again to fasilitate removal of the ballast tank or stern area for repairs if needed,the screws will be used.

The original props are used as well but the shafts are replaced with stainless steel ones and bushed at the hull point.Two geared down motors will be used with water cooling,and seprate ESCs.

Here are some diagrams of the casings I made above the blue ones,they can be made to any length and diamiter of PVC and from clear PVC ,the latches are available at fastner supply stores or google them.
To make them cut a union in half and place it on the pipe where you need it with enogh shoulder to ensure that the cap will fit snogly but not all the way as the O ring that comes on later must be compressed,if there is a mechanical stop the O ring will not seat and will leak.

Mark that spot around the edge of the cut coupling on the inner side after you have placed the cap onto that end,this way you have a square fit ,then aplly PVC glue on the inner side of the collar and or the pipe just ahead of the mark and not wider that the collar and use spareingly!

Place collar on pipe and emediatly place the cap behind it and puch the 2 parts till the mark is reached.Remove the cap ,let dry.Next find a O ring that fits snugly not very tight and not a thick one,one that is as thick as the PVC caps edge.Fit the O ring and then the cap and check for fit.

Before you glue the above be sure that the "factory edge" is used against the O on both the cap and union if not there might be a leak later,if there is some flashing or inperfection simply sand the edge on a flat surface untill it is smoth.

Install the latches in any configuration 2 ,3 or 4 as needed,by instructions provided by the maker,just be sure to make them fit tightly!

The other diagram shows the stuffing box I make for all of my subs and has a perfect track record and lasts a long time,easy to make and very inexpensive,parts come from smallparts.com and Kand S tubbing.
Fill the tube with light grade grease not the heavy thick kind after the bushings are glued in place with the "stainless steel centerless" shaft left in to insure that the bushings are alighned and not binding the shaft.When dry remove the shaft and insert the grease untill it comes out the other end .Gring flats or use a threaded end for prop exetra thats it,easy stuffing box garanteed not to leak or fail when you need it the most.
