New source for waterproof servos, thrusters, and cables/connectors

Hi everyone, this is Damon McMillan, the creator of the solar-powered autonomous boat, SeaCharger. I’m going to make a shameless plug for my new business, Blue Trail Engineering.

As I was building SeaCharger, I was frustrated that I couldn’t buy many of the components that I needed most, in particular a truly waterproof servo, an efficient waterproof thruster, and inexpensive waterproof cables and connectors.

I founded Blue Trail Engineering to meet those needs, and we are now open for business. Please check it out! I’m hopeful that I can make it easier for others to build long-endurance boats like SeaCharger.

The SeaCharger is looking good!
