    Just ran onto these 2 photos in my Archives. I'd published them in the boat section of RCGroups some years back. Shown is the start of my "Bouncie II". I used this method in my "Bunker Boat" too.

    Better grease the male/female connection itself or you may have trouble separating after soldering.🀣

    Helpful also is 63/37 solder, has no plastic zone so avoids frosted connections

    jbkiwi: Probably not, my boat was built by Schock W.D. Associations in California sometime between 1969 and 1976 and was designed by a guy named Seymour Paul. Bob

    I clamp my cylinder motors in place so: 1) make a center drilled actual size dummy motor and put the clamp on it. 2) install a long music wire for the prop shaft thru the dummy motor and temp alignment bulkheads on either side of where the motor goes. 3) Glue/screw/fix the motor clamp to the hull. 4) remove the music wire, the dummy motor and temp alignment bulkheads. 5) install the real motor in the clamp, slide your prop shaft inπŸŽ‰

    Built about 10 years ago, it's mostly decoration now, hasn't been on the water in maybe 7-8 years.
