    Ya, getting close. Need to figure elegant water pick up, clean motor access hatches and then seal her up.

    After all the struggle and still barely convinced I’ll have cog adjustability, I’m having version 4.3 cut.. the sixth revision in 4 months.
    Next version mods are to allow getting weight farther back easier.

    Gonna call this design the “Wolverine X”. Possibly scale up to 48” and down to 17”. Once tested in battle, then into production.

    I personally would send the cooling output back into the outboard motor housings and then out the sides for a scale look, but then again, I'm nutz! :) The tubing going into the outboards would serve as the 'fuel' lines. :)
