Here's a video we made with our GoPro camera. We wanted to take a look to see how bad the bottom looked before we cleaned it. What we saw when we popped the SD card into the laptop was a surprise! We just took an old boat hook, by the way, and a little bit of drilling here, a couple of screws here, and we had our own camera extender!

If the water's clear you can also do a cursory inspection with a mechanic's mirror on a stick..

Wish this idea would work in the Chesapeake Bay..but viz is generally less than a foot and cleaning is generally accomplished by hand(with gloves on)..

Also Tried a dive light all that does is light up the suspended turbidity in the Bay waters..

Go Pro cameras here in the Comox Vally cost around $400. A friend bought me one online direct from China for $75, in a great, solid waterproof housing, with a lot of extras.. That kind of purchasing is making ship chandlers nervous.
