    I am  thinking this underwater drone called Navatics Mito is the perfect gift for Jamie !<span style=”color: #333333; font-family: ff-meta-serif-web-pro, serif; font-size: 19.8px;”>he Navatics Mito “is a remotely operated underwater vehicle that can shoot 12-megapixel still images and capture 4K video at 30 fps. Four thrusters allow it to maintain depth, heading and orientation at a speed of 3.8 knots, and it comes with two 1,000-lumen LED lights. It can run for four hours at 130 feet while tethered to a communication buoy, which can be operated by a smartphone from 1,640 feet away. At 14 by 12 by 5 inches and 7.6 pounds, the Mito can travel in a backpack. and the price,$1499”.  So add this to the list of needs and wants!</span>

    These look neat to me, though they have to be tethered. I think flying drones are probably more useful since it’s easier to get underwater than it is to fly. I haven’t seen anyone on sailing Youtube channels try out products like this which are supposed to enable one to land their drone on water (or a beach) without killing it. Of course, you’d better do it on flat water!

    Our first drone was the SplashDrone, which allowed us to land it in the water. Fantastically useful option for boat dweller, pity the drone was so rubbish! If they’ve improved it, I’d be interested to know…

    At the moment we’re properly getting into diving (since we’re stuck here, we may as well add a skill and get some experience) so all Jamie’s energy is going into underwater photography. Maybe one day, when the prices come down and it’s been tested be lots of people, we’ll look at an underwater drone option. Never say never!

    Peace and fair winds!
