|We did't bring the correct seal, so this is Danny's attempt to fit a smaller one on the port battery tube.|

|It's hard to complain with that view!|

|We captured a turtle! SUCCESS!!|
|Danny's expression explains how we all felt about this dive!|
Do you remember, from above, I said this dive was almost a complete success? With so many components on this ROV, we were bound to have some type of an issue. Sure enough, after 45 minutes of exploring Lou Neff point, and right in the middle of my piloting session, the ROV died. Once we reel it back in we notice that one of the batteries has completed died (I mean D.E.A.D.). It has been quite awhile since we bought new batteries, so losing one is not that hard to imagine.
- Buy new batteries
- Find the battery tube seal
- Continue this dive's success!
