ROV – first wet run (26/09/13)

So the ROV had it’s maiden test voyage yesterday. The conditions weren’t ideal, but I think it was successful! The test showed a lot of potential, tweaks are needed to the buoyancy, and I think the ROV would benefit from having the camera angled a little more downwards. See the youtube link below for a video.

I’m hoping to get some good footage over the next few weeks, both videos and stills, of fouling organisms on Marina pontoons. There’s also the prospect of taking it out on a boat, which could be interesting!
