Final Build of Sea Scout ROV

With just over 4 weeks left until the regional competition in Alpena, Michigan Ship 41 is putting together the ROV components.

To the left is the making of the en-defector or mechanical arm.

A clevis pin (not shown) will connect the claw to the compressed air cylinder.

This assembly will be inserted into a PVC tube with a slot at the end to hold the claw in place.

The wiring for the temperature sensor, hydrophone, camera and lights, and the two compressed air lines will be encased in an expandable plastic hose.  The hose is very kindly being donated to us by Dave Zwart of Zwart Systems , St. Catherines,  Ontario.
