Any ideas as to where I can locate these pod type thruster motors? These are the one on Alvin, they are exactly what I need.

Found everything but what I wanted. Outboards by the shedload, but no thrusters.

Holy sheeeet...that's expensive. I'm thinking of making something up with a flexible drive of some sort, more thought needed here methinks.


Thanks to both of you guys...
