OpenROV kit arrived

Today I went by the office and found a pleasant gift from Kris Kringle in the arrival of our OpenROV kit.

Serial number 122 from the first production run.

I will be documenting the build and test effort. For now I am reading through the build instructions on the website, a quite unusual process for me I'm actually going to read through and follow the directions instead of just plunging headlong into the build. This will allow me to better review and comment on the instructions to help others along the way.

Already starting to think about payloads like the gopro camera and ctd we used on the OpenROV at Conch Reef.

Onwards and downwards.

Thanks Eric and David on putting a nicely packed kit together.
