Sea Scouts To Enter Marine Technology ROV Competition

So the next challenge for the Sea Scouts of Ship 41 will be building a ROV (remote controlled underwater vehicle).  The regional competition is in April, 2010, however the goal of our Quarterdeck is to go to the U of Hawaii for the international event next June.

This is a photograph of a ROV, Seafox Retrofit, designed and built by Steve Thone .  The picture gives the scouts an idea what the final craft should look like.  As Ship 41's project progresses we'll keep you posted.

Also from Steve's website (click on link above) is diagram of a typical ROV.  These pictures are shown here with his permission. He has kindly offered to assist us by answering any (and there are sure to be some) questions as we move forward.
