    If you'd like a tip - next time you want to get paint off of metal, find a can or two of aircraft paint remover. Do it outside. Spray it, let it work for a few minutes, wipe it all off with a paper towel. Bad, bad stuff though so be careful with it.

    The motor system you designed looks really similar to a "sail drive" but you have the motor mounted just fore of the prop and in the water. If corrosion starts to give you problems you could look at moving the motors up above decks and translating the power down. Check out Oceanvolt for some ideas there if you need them, also because they are just cool high end tech.

    I believe epoxy is hydrophobic (absorbs water); which is why most fiberglas boats use a two-part polyester as a binding agent and paint.

    I like all the floatation and safety features required by law, the legal registration, and other requirements that he put in the boat. ..... not! People no familiar with laws regarding boats need to learn THAT first... And get marine liability insurance so when your negligence leads to a death, you wont end up in jail. Stupid kids! Smart to make things, and STUPID to violate all the laws and regulations. If I was Coast Guard, this would be good for fines and jail.

    Solar panels need batteries for storage and a charge controller. If you add a large capacitor too, that should help when you want to accelerate.

    I was thinking you could rig a potentiometer to the steering wheel and control your steering with some servos. there are some 48v 1200w brushless legit out board motors not built into the prop you can buy on eBay only 25 amps full power. You'd need like 4x12v 40 amp batteries to get a 1hr 1/2 of run time with a 600 w solar set up you could get 2 hrs to potentially 2 1/2hrs of run time. But those numbers are running mainly full power. If you're cruising at 40% power. I'm sure 7-8 hrs of run time with 600w solar which is still pretty crazy. It'd be around 1.5k to do but would definitely be the most professional way around it like the boat is already looking fancy might as well make it quick, efficient and technological

    Infinite range in sunny weather then? I lived on a sailboat for 2.5 years as a young lad, sailed up and down the eastern seaboard. Remember many consecutive days without a slice of sun. Invest in high-quality weather monitoring system and hire a meteorologist as a deck hand to keep yourself ahead of foul weather my friend. Cool build though.
