    I'm thinking of fitting a bow thruster to the Project 575 boat, and I remembered way back I made up a unit similar to the attached diagram for use in a 40" all balsa construction surface boat. The same system worked very well in my carrier (The USS Enterprise) it worked fine in that, so I'm wondering if it would push the bows round in a 54" sub and help the thing to turn a bit better...any ideas, chaps?

    Well, it's done...a short section of plastic tube shaped and epoxied into the hull and a length of silicone tube, this will be cut to the proper length once the pump is installed in the radio box.
