    It's mostly complete....mostly. He got the tanks cleaned out and motors fired up smartly. Found the hose connection to circulate water. Thing has more redundant systems than the moon lander. That's where TMs would come in handy. I'm learning about boats in the Arizona sun on this thing.

    Redundant is Good. Don't know for sure, but it's a USN thing I believe:

    - No pull-overs on the open water where you can "stop" and try and figure out a problem

    - Especially during combat, when what you need is a quick fix NOW

    The old PT-Boats of WWII were full of redundancies (likely for that reason).

    Yeah. We are trying to make sense of what we are seeing and following the pipes and wires and valves and guessing using comparative anatomy techniques.
    The systems all have a few places that you can bypass/isolate/cross feed/parallel for combat survivability purposes.
    Having the TMs would be a big help with this stuff...
