The warship guys put the Rx and motor controllers in a waterproof box.  Servos may 
or may not be in the box.  Exposed servos are waterproofed using Tool-Dip and 
o-rings under the servo horn.  Smaller ships may not have a box and everything is 
individually waterproofed.  The drive and pump motors are not sealed.  Motors appear 
to be expendable after a seasons use or until they don't work anymore.

At least that+s my observations of Tri-Pact ship building techniques.

Here's some links,
