Newcomer to the fleet...
« on: October 01, 2014, 09:26:05 am »

Here we go then...the newcomer to my sub fleet. It's an ArkModel Shark, a static dive boat, 34'' long, and weighs virtually nothing (compared to my Akula) It has a waterpump and a bag in a cylinder and four channel radio. I've added a couple of cosmetic bits on the deck, now I'm just waiting the delivery of a Corona rx and a MicroGyros leveller and we're good to go. It did come with a radio installed, but when I looked closely at it, it was on 35mHz....naughty. :police: So it had to be changed a bit quick...

Sealed water bag ballast system right?

Is the chamber containing the water bag vented into the aft dry space or is it sealed?
