    Engel submarine typhoon

    Engel submarine typhoon
    I have a typhoon submarine which was built for me
    unfortunately I'm not in contact with the person who built it
    the problem I have I have broke the seal
    tween the dive box and the hole if you know what I mean
    it's the pink stuff that look like some sort of mastic I had done a pressure test before going down the lake
    unfortunately on the way to the lake I was chatting and forgot the speed bump everything seemed to be ok when I arrived,until I got the sub in the water there is no cracks or damage but the seal is broken
    so I'm hoping to run a new sealant I need to know what to do use and where to get it be helpful
    thank you martin

    Hi Martin,

    I had to do the same on my typhoon. brought it thinking it was a runner but leaked on the seal. I used normal bath sealant, the only down side was i had to remove every thing from inside(tank, servo, boards) before removing the old seal and making a new one.

    cheers

    Tim
