An how they will lay in the hull layout but i think i may change this when i do come to actually fit them in as im thinging of making it work so that if i want i can use a step switch on my R/C to just stop two motors an have just two running to double my sailing time but if its windy then i just hit the stepswitch an bring the other two motors back into play for full ahead flank speed

An in this last shot is of a  smaller ESC with BEC an fail safe as this one is to power the bow thruster an yes i know the real ship dint have one but as this is a big hull its gonna catch the wind an it will be a job to controll it on the wet stuff so it will be usefull

HERE in this shot can be seen all the steps on the rear of the main S/S an i think climbin all these steps they must have been very fit an the steps are just laid on at the moment so i can spray this in its top grey paint then they will be added
