      For the Atlantic harbor tug rc u need to buy 3 mm o ring to keep water from getting inside the hull t on the smoke stack the bottom I drilled three holes on each side of the smoke stack And the top of the smoke stack I drilled 5 holes Then I made A couple of other holes so the airflow could get in and I just got done cleaning my tugboats. Motor with brake cleaner and wire brushes That’s all for now

        My tug is stock except I have upgraded it to 2.4. Everything else is the same. I really enjoying getting it out on the water. I have it set up for FPV as well, but just to mainly record the sail via DVR

              No it hasn't rusted. Haven't had any issues. But I did forget to mention, I removed the old ESC and replaced it with a Quicrun 1060. The boat drives much better with the upgrade.

                Respectfully saying I did the same thing on my tug and put a dynamite esc in and Tactic 6 channel revcevier I have a tactic 6 channel receiver I can, I think I can store up to I think 20 or 10 rc boats I thinkisk the old esc was ok but the dynamite esc was much better than the original esc

                  Is that the motor or the esc but I might change the motor to a different motor

                    I’d also like to recommend 3 mm orings to keep the hull of the Atlantic harbor tug boat dry i bought the orings. At autozone auto parts store it only costed me $ 4.19 after tax
