OpenROV Workshop Olso in November

Heads up to our Scandi community members: OpenROV is having a workshop in Oslo in November hosted by MESH and conceived and organized by our truly wonderful OpenROV Ambassador, Christine.

Participants will be building OpenROV kits, working on experimental features, servicing old ROVs, trading adventure stories, and hopefully doing a few dives together. If you live close to Oslo or are interested in spending a few weekends with us please join us. Details at the bottom of the post.

NUMA - Clive Cussler's National Underwater and Marine Agency

"Founded by Dr. Clive Cussler, the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) is a non-profit, volunteer foundation dedicated to preserving our maritime heritage through the discovery, archaeological survey and conservation of shipwreck artifacts.+

We lost many end caps and Etubes in the process, but we came out of it more knowledgeable about our product! 

End Caps…
