Re: Underwater camera for bottom maintenance
I just purchased a "GoPro Hero 3" camera. It comes with a waterproof (to 197') housing. And the housing has a built in mount on it. Google the camera to see if it is what you are looking for. Older models, Hero and Hero 2, can be had cheaper than the new model.
I am buying a boat, and had it hauled for the survey. They were able to power wash the soft growth off the hull, but had to scrape barnacles off the bronze prop.
You may need to get someone into the water to clean at least the prop.
There was another thread on here with a link to a good article on bottom cleaning. I don't remember the title, but the search feature should find it for you. IIRC, it had someone in the water to clean the hull.
