    Don't think they're referencing model sub building, though.

    David,

    Well said. Words to ponder...

    Just running out of usable lakes. Closest is a 3 hour drive and with my busy life these days not very practical. Best bet is my friends pool.

    Don't know if Kevin has worked a distribution deal over there. Good luck. They save so much space, permit remote activation, and even have a resetting breaker if the current spikes above rating. Highly recommended.

    No, that's a 10A magnetically actuated 'mission switch' produced by Kevin McLeod and sold by Nautilus Drydocks. I love those things!

    I understand there has been an upgrade and the new one is rated at 15A. Still, a very small footprint (takes up very little space within your WTC).​

    Yup. An 808 housed in Andy's magnificent little case:



    I either use Andys streamlined u/w 808 case as a towed-body or strapped to the deck of a model submarine. It's a thin walled, GRP structure I modified to accept a stabilizing fin and tow pad-eye.


    Note the lead weight. Used to statically stabilize the tow-body in roll. The ring stabilizer dynamically stabilizes the body in pitch and yaw.





    Note Andy's use of a machined metal bayonet ring with O-ring to provide access to his u/w cases interior.





    For those looking over our shoulders, this is a fine little cast resin u/w 808 enclosure produced by Tom Chalfant. I modified it with flexible 'buttons' to permit control of the camera once installed within.
