"Did some more work on the NAV box over the past couple days. At least I'm up to the point where I can connect to it via my computer or tablet. Next up will be getting power and signal to the thrusters and then mounting the box."

"Thanks Jason, you definitely have the better product and I hope it sells well. If you ever get them in productionand over to the USA, I'd buy one."

"Kevin, You are right, I haven't mate the files public as I desined them for a commercial project however PM me and I will see what I can do for you. They would require some mods to fit your hull dimensions but that is easy enough. Anyway, here…"

David Boulanger replied to Kevin Klemens's discussion Rugged ArduBoat for Mapping Applications in the group ArduBoat User Group
"Ya.  Maybe running the cable up the side of the hull at the closest point with these types of fastener's would be a good option.  I'm with you on not drilling holes.  Although using 3M 5200 with through hulls is bullet…"

"@bigkahuna I was thinking of using those nylon cable glands too. Those would be easier to use if I need to disconnect the cable for whatever reason. I also have some BR cable penetrators.  @David Think something like these cable holders would…"

"Kevin,  Although I hate drilling holes in a hull you could use a couple of small thru hulls with some stiff rubber hose attached so that the opening was way above the waterline.  The most important thing is probably just to make sure…"

"@Kevin - Why not use a couple nylon cable glands?  Just be sure to mount them on the topside so you don't have to worry about a hull penetration."

"Thrusters mounted. I used two ends of an HDPE cutting board and trimmed to fit and then glued them to the hull with marine epoxy. Not the most elegant solution, but they aren't going anywhere and I've maintained hull integrity. Everything…"

"Looks good.  The bottom  of the hull is much wider than it looked like in the first picture. Regards, David R. Boulanger"

"@David - Yes, completely valid concern. I was planning on mounting the thrusters about 2/3rds of the way back from the bow and as far apart as possible. What would be your thoughts on the below picture? It won't need to be super maneuverable…"

"Kevin, if you do decide to steer the thrusters, there's a great thread about 3d printed parts to do so on our forums: https://www.bluerobotics.com/forums/topic/azimuth-mount-for-the-t100-t200-series/ I think you'll have plenty of power and…"

"Kevin, That hull is going to have a lot of windage.  The thrusters will need to be spaced away from one another a good deal to turn in a good wind.  I'm not being critical of your idea, but that is one possible problem I see with…"

"Thanks for the support and encouragement! @David - Thanks for the info and sea trials. I'm not building this one for speed, more for torque, so good to know about the thrusters. I've had good experiences with my T-100's in my ROV so…"
