I set up the Adafruit Huzzah32 Feather Board with the FS90R continuous rotation servos (powered by an external power bank), the Adafruit NeoPixel FeatherWing, and the Adafruit 9-DOF Absolute Orientation IMU Fusion Breakout.

In addition, I got the Roco library working locally on my computer and will begin creating new designs with it next week, particularly an ESP stack mount, a servo mount, and a boat base (keeping in mind the potential for capsizing due to uneven weight distribution and the need to protect the electronics from water). I found paper chassis models from previous groups and will use them as inspiration for the new robotic boats, which will feature a more modular design for each actuator.
