    Ha ha thanks!
    This is a nice video. The sounds are on the boat tracks taken from the jaws film so actual real music and dialogue. It's operated from a trigger switch via transmitter, and the smoke unit now also comes out of the engine hatch

    I made my own smoker, spent ages trying to create black smoke, carbon, diesel oils, and so on, even bIts of rubber!

    rubbish quality video but gives you the idea, its wire from a hairdryer wrapped around a piece of dowel covered with some roof insulation soaked in oil in a metal box, with a small pc fan to blow the smoke out, juts need to remember to fill up the oil via the exhaust stack every 15 m ins or so or the hull will get hot and then you do get black smoke. !

    Atomizers if using dyed water would the vapour give the coloured effect? Lipos in boats or any electrical connection, is best positioned in a raised position away from any water trail, say water gets in through an hole,gap,crack,shaft it will ultimately settle in the lowest point it can get to, so you can have a fair amount of water slopping around in the boat before you have submerged electrics I don't like getting any water in my boats! But guess what it often has a presence in them, so far the only time I had an issue was when I sailed a yacht which had a 3" crack in the gunwale I think this happened when the boat caught some wind and fell off it's stand, I didn't see it?? But the only issue was the nimh receiver pack got wet, and the old standard rudder servo cable grommet let water in, once home dryed the battery in warm air flow, stripped the servo and cleaned regressed sealed it after making sure all moisture was gone put it all back together and had no issues at all, typically low powered stuff may show malfunction when wet but turn it off asap! And thoroughly dry it out don't rush it, further damage may occur if you persistently power things up before they are moisture free! Higher voltage may cause more issues but 4.8 To 7.4 v isn't too bad, but say system like 6-8s pulling big amps, through expensive electrics may be a different issue but a little dampness is not a big issue you just have to sort it out.

    Lew, for connectors, I use XT30/XT60 on my RC aircraft, they seem better when it comes to separating the two halves. As for LIPO, well again I only use them for my aircraft and todays chargers are very good but they are not cheap to buy. You can also buy/create a flame proof charging box. I am going to use my LIPO's in my new boat this year (I have them so I will use them) but the only thing that is bothering me is a short circuit due to water? Going to do some thinking on that one.

    Years ago I wanted to build an ironclad (US Civil War) but could not find a decent way. I got some small coal used for the small RR steamers but that would require a good size hot box. I also tried incense but it burned too slow requiring many burning at the same time. Even looked at "stage smoke".

    I hope someone can come up with a decent non toxic black smoke.

    JBkiwi and I did quite a bit of development on smokers using vapes 3-4 years ago. No dark smoke though! Try searching the blogs and Media Gallery. Unfortunately many of the videos have been deleted from the site but I found one here:

    Lew, trying to achieve darker smoke seems to be the holy grail of all that use smokers. Hopefully someone has come up with a safe solution. Len
