Got the hardware back on the boat, i ned to find a lot of wierd length m4 screws but thats not a problem. I was even able to reuse the original flexshaft.
I like this layout with the batterys on the sides, gives lots of adjustability.
I got my go to servo for this, its cheap, fast and strong

That is a good looking rigger,
Your own design??
yes it is, i never got to share it cause my plan needs to be gone over and corrected, i always make changes in my head and not transfer them to the plan, but this is dialed in well. im and old NAMBA member was #62, then #662 but don't know what number now, just an old boater since 1962 when nothing was available. hah just havin fun now
 
I fitted the original servo mount but it didnt fit with the pushrod, so i changed to a tfl mount and added some carbon bracing. The damage to the bottom has been filled and is ready for sanding
