Default New and Interesting Boats

Hello

Please take a look at these unusual boats that I play with. Maybe not the fastest you have ever seen, but are capable of interesting tasks. This first movie shows a cool survey in the San Diego model boat pond and if anyone was curious how deep it is then you can see (it is 7ft, by the way). You can also see a buried pipe running north south.

Well, the coal mine survey would be very interesting for sure. Take a look at the more typical application for these boats - this one is the juiced up version. This is carrying $40,000 of equipment so the user needs to be confident that it is reliable !!!
