What Level Should BlueROV Float

(Thomas Trickel) #1

I couldn’t find an answering while searching so …

What level should our BlueROV be floating at?

(Bo Koppel) #2

Matter of opinion depending how you work whith the ROV
I would say much heavier then picture.
Also keep in mind that seawater is more dence and gives more lifting then fresh water.
I usually make the ROV just float, ie almost nothing over surface in fresh water.
That gives slight positivity in sea water.
So, working close to bottom, I have vertical thrusters pushing water upwards, avoiding bottom silt.

Thank you.

I’ll take out some of the buoyancy foam.

Put weights on bottom to balance n then buoyancy can be used for heavy lift later if needed
