    But, the point is: you got back on the horse and put your little pride and joy back together again. Good man!

    Glad to see your boat repaired and back into the game.

    About the leak within the SD. If you're confident the leak is not through the motor bulkhead do this: remove the MB with attached devices and keep it there, pull the battery as well. Send me your SD for repair.

    Guys, just an update, the tail attachment was successful, thanks for the help! Btw, the West Marine epoxy was excellent!

    You've already trimmed the boat, so leave the unused safety float-valve in place and blank off the nipples.

    Blank off the hole where the manifold broke off (CA and baking soda).

    Blank off the internal nipple of the 4-point manifold where the safety float-valve made up to it. Run the hose from the snorkel straight into the suction side of the motor bulkhead. Now you're in Snort mode. Done.

    Thanks Rob, I tinkered with rc planes as well, then did helis for a long time, mostly scale helis. Now I fly drones, so much easier! Did get my Drone Commercial Certification as well.
