Sea Scout Team Indomitable's ROV

The Sea Scout Ship 41's ROV is taking shape.  The motors have been tested out in a local pool and work a treat.  Our advisors built mock-ups of the competition tasks as detailed on the MATE website.
In this picture Mr. Ricketts demonstrates Task#1, resurrecting HUGO.

 In this picture Mr. Brewer describes the requirements for Task #3, sampling a new vent sight.  This requires taking and graphing temperatures inside various vents.

Once the four tasks had been explained the scouts had a dummy run through the mock-ups with a handheld ROV frame just to get a feel for the steps needed by the competition.  More to follow.........
