    RE; Working anchors
    what I have done with the anchors is run the chain up a tube to the winch, this would keep water from entering the hull

    Looks good are you making working anchors also if so Banggood has what they call an upgrade, aluminum 25T servo winch kit for 1/10 RC crawlers, what you need is a 360 degree servo to use it on an glue a larger disk to them for more space, I am working on some now

    Puddle Pirate when ordering from Banggood just type in RC products and with that I find a lot of stuff we can use you would be surprised at what they have but it takes a while to get stuff from them

    What I use in mine is baby oil and kerosen mixed 50/50 does have a little smell but works, you could use varsol instead of the kerosen like what they use in coal oil lamps
