Re: underwater inspection

It's usually a cleaning thing, especially the prop

Re: underwater inspection

What do you think of this little baby:

Underwater Boat Camera With Sony Super HAD CCD

seems like it might be a good beast if it had a decent pole or mounting that could be manipulated ok...

A very cheap investment for a speedy and safe passage.

Re: Underwater Inspection

In March, before leaving Nassau, i had the bottom cleaned. The individual told me my prop zinc was fine.
He did a lousy job and we did a quick dive to double check. Can you believe that there was a line wrapped around the prop and he either did not notice or decide not to mention it?

How did you know he'd done "a lousy job" if you hadn't checked his work yet? How much time elapsed between him doing the job and you checking his work?
