Underwater Go Pro inspection after yacht charter

I was at the fuel dock in Marsh Harbour and a charter catamaran pulled in front of me. As they were offloading the charterers, a diver jumps in the water with a GoPro underwater camera and photographs the entire length of the keel looking for damage from groundings and hitting underwater obstructions.

We talked to the keel photographer and the keel inspection photos are a routine event at the completion of a charter.

It seems that these boats run aground frequently and damage occurs. It does not surprise me because I have seen the charter cats move aggressively and at high speed in very thin water.
