I cheated and bought one of these for my lad of course, with plans of glueing pipe lagging around to form the tubes, which should then make a good filming platform for the gp.

This Futaba radio is going to show up at my door tomorrow.



Below the black framed part is the drive unit that will be radio controlled, and mount under my SIB, with saddles made of ABS and thermo formed to the boat, that mount under the bow, which makes it radio controlled. I still need to hack the wheelchair control joystick so I have both controls. Not what the OP meant, but it is a radio controlled boat of sorts



The hitch carrier is to be mounted to the front of the wheelchair, yet removable, for hauling dive gear across the beach. Plus to give me a ride back to the vehicle parked at the top of the hill, at my favorite shore diving site.
