Difficult to be specific, looks like the canisters are filled up on shore as I can't spot any compressors.

Did you purchase this from Antoine? If so I'm sure he can give you the best knowledge on this boat as, AFAIK, he built it.

I can't really see what electronic equipment you have in that boat from the pictures provided, David.

What I can say is that solenoids will be activated by either relays, servo controlled microswitches or by a solid state transistorised switch.

If you were a bit further South I'd suggest bringing it along to the Dive-in at Brockwell Lido in a couple of weeks, and it could probably be all sorted out there.

Had a search for Antoine's original sale notice for this boat. It looks like all the electronic gubbins is in the box just forward of the drive motors. Any chance of some better pictures of this area.
