One thing I must have missed, how did you seal up the hole where the
drive chain passed through the hull?

It was a really good effort with a exciting ending, certainly not
what I expected, mostly! :)

Right, that is a very good question because it didn't appear that the
guys were sitting in water. I was surprised also to see the boat
being used backwards.

That was easy: I simply built a closed chain case covering the chain and the
upper wheel, sealed carefully at the bottom and stuck on the transmissions
end. I just had to seal it with the transbox than, cause the rotating shaft
had to be already sealed again oil. See picture:

<font face="Arial" size="2">The frame you see around the chain case I have added for safety, because I frightened that the chain could could cut the case when coming off at high speed and killing both drivers. Thank godness that did not happen!</font>

<font face="Arial" size="2">Here some more tiny pics about the chain drive and how to seal it.</font>
<font face="Arial" size="2">Here you see the chain going through the boat:</font>


<font face="Arial" size="2">and this is the chain covered with its case:</font>


<font face="Arial" size="2">The reason, why this howyoudoit is not mentioned in the film is, that we ran out of time on the last building day. While the team had a day off next day, I had to complete the vehicle and make it run. This chain case I built the day after the building day. Oh - it was no cheating, the other experts were working on their vehicles as well. However we helped each other very much and yes it was great fun. </font>
<font face="Arial" size="2">But that is the reason for why I was so tired the racing day and had to take a nap in the boat. It was most comfortable.</font>
