Yes. RAM mount. Absolutely best product on the market.

We organized everything so it can be easily mounted on our working raft…

That makes me think of a slightly tangentially related question. Whats the best way to secure a tether spool to a boat? How often is the ROV pulling on the tether to the point you would be worried about it going in the drink? Would a big side mounted suction cup work for most hulls? What about usage from a dock? I’m thinking some sort of side clamp mount with various accessories (maybe a ground anchor spike, dock “T” shaped slot anchor, suction cup, cable anchor cleet of some sort , magnet, etc. )

Tim good point…
Whatever you do it should be properly anchored to a boat.

That looks fantastic. Would you mind sharing details on the slip ring?

Yes of course

The solution looks great!

It looks like you are using CAT-5 cable. How did you manage to get neutral buoyancy? And is there any compression issue at depth?
