        Rematch at Red Clay!
        If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

            It would be fun to create a combat game for rc submarines. I know there are rc airplane ones that have a trailing ribbon or something like that and opponents fly using prop to cut the flag off. If flag is cut you are shot down. Could we do something like that? Or should we just go for the scrape the paint off?

              We would spend all our time unfouling our own propeller from the towed streamer.

              Paint scraping is the way to go.
