Dunk test Boddam harbour, Aberdeenshire. Epic fail full of water needed to redo the entry points for the cables. Filled them with fibreglass resin.
Photos from Newcastle Maker Faire March 2011, fantastic two days.

Hi my name is Martin and this site is about the world of underwater ROV’s (Remote operated vehicles)
I’ve been building ROV’s for some time now, having dream’t about building one for years.
I debuted the first one I built at the Newcastle Maker Faire in March 2011 and shortly after presented it at the Scottish Ruby conference in Edinburgh. I’ve attended Mini Maker Faires all over the UK showing my original ROV and a couple of Micro one’s that kids could play with.
At the beginning of 2013 I decided to start to build an Open Source OpenROV and this site covers much of the build process and ongoing improvements. OpenROV has a great community and it’s well worth becoming a member.
