    I use gorilla wood glue on my boats, squeeze glue into gap and then apply binding around the joint. Leave for 24 hours, this glue is waterproof.

    My RAF fire tender is powered by a Mtronlks hydra 50 motor with water cooling, (photo attached) the boat is powered by a lipo 5200mah batter giving a run time off about 25 minutes
    The fire crew are Logo men.

    I have a Aerokit 46" 12 scale RAF fire crash tender, is this to the same scale as your boat?
    The mast on mine is 12cm high x 9 cm at the arm.
    I have attached photographs of the mast on my boat.
    Hope this helps.

    It is a good idea to protect the Inside of the boat as at sometime it is going to get wet.
    It also looks a lot cleaner and more like a finished model.

    Try fitting a fuse on the live lead to the motor's this will blow before the motor's or any other components draw to much current.
