I'm trying to build this. I have printed most of the pump parts and mounts. I don't see any recent activity on this. Are you still actively trying to update the model?

I cant find the top cover to seal the interior.

I printed this boat, I am having a hard time finding a motor that will fit the direct drive pumps.
What motors do you use? I cant find a shaft length over 15mm past the case of the motor.

What are you using for control? A rudder, ball joint nozzles or is it simply a slow one motor down?

Two rudders driven off of one servo are used for steering. I will add more progress pictures soon with the rudder setup and direct drive pumps. Belt driven pumps were great on paper but bad idea when it came down to getting belts to stay on at high speeds.

How about a direct connection between the electric motor and the prop-blades using some silicon hose pipe?
