Default Underwater Photos from the ROV **PIC HEAVY**

i've been playing around a bit with the ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) and snapping some pics along the way, lol.
too bad i don't have a detector attached to it but the eye ball finds are certainly there! i've already done a few small recoveries with the machine... few fishing rods, glasses, some trash targets just for practice, haha.
anywho, here's a few shots from under the surface, hope ya like them! it's not quite metal detecting in the general sense, but still treasure hunting and exploring. if the demand is there, i'll post s'more in the future.
thanks for looking,
Pete
1. a "furry" bicycle and a school of herring guarding it.
2. another bike, less the herring, LOL.
3. a fishing rod with some stuff growing on it.
4. managed to get a "selfie" from about 5 or 6 feet under the surface!
5. a good sized lobster! he went into attack mode when he realized i was sneaking up behind it, haha!! and NO, i did not try grabbing it nor will i make any attempts to do so.
6. top left... that's a fishing reel just laying there on the bottom, no rod.


all of these were taken on the same "dive", depth ranged from 18 to 23 feet deep, Camera used was an Olympus TG Tracker with no external lighting used.

dang, that's a long wait! i waited close to a month for mine and that was too long.
i'll try to attach a couple pics of it. these were on my phone and i'll see if i resized them small enough, lol.
ok, a shot of the machine by itself and one of the whole setup. this design "pitches" up and down rather than just moving up/down horizontally. it's a bit tricky to get use to, but i'm getting there, lol.

007-tall-guy, please don't be bothered by that "scuba-detector" guy. He's just a lurker on the forum, who has mental delusions of being a scuba diver, finding gold rings, racking up war-stories, etc.... But it's all made up psychotic delusions. We try to keep him on his med's, but....... sometimes he slips back.........

haha! that's almost describing me as well, hehe. well, except for the scuba diver part of it, i can't swim a stroke, LOL.
i probably have really high hopes of spotting any gold rings laying within sight on the bottom, but who knows.... i'd prefer the big chests of gold treasure anyway, i'll leave those puny little rings for everyone else.
