West Coast Divings Adventures


(West Coast Diving) #1

HI

We have done a good few dives with our Blue ROV 2 now some for customers and just for our own fun. I have made a Youtube channel for our Scuba Diving but have a few ROV dives in there, A few good wrecks we will be diving on shortly off the West Coast Of Scotland. Enjoy :slight_smile:

What we do.

A few pictures from a play in my friends fishery.

Like the tether coiling board setup. Simple and effective. Looks to be similar hose reels that we used.

Thanks Mark, Very simple and does the job even when out on our Boat. Tether management at its Best :grin:

Love the tether management system. Also love how you’ve marked the depths / length on the tether. What marking system did you decide on? Looks like you’re using red / white / blue tape?

Thank you, I went with this code, My Other ROV system the Hydrovision Hyball uses the same colour code and falcon systems i have worked with offshore use a similar code.

Does anyone know if commercial divers have a standard method for marking hose / tethers? Because of my background as a mariner, unless I found something more appropriate, I’d probably do something similar to how we mark anchor chains (Note: the center mark alternates between, RED, WHITE and BLUE). A “shot” (15 fathoms = 90 feet) is too long a distance between marks so I’d probably mark it every 10 meters.
