Waterproof Drone

I did not want to hijack another thread about Drones, so here's a youtube link to a brand of waterproof drone. I don't own one, but I think a water proof Drone is the only way to go using them in a boat.

Have to agree with you there. Although must admit the Youtube video below makes drone fishin look a bit more interesting... "Omg I've caught a bass,,,,Marian !!! Marian!!! Look what I've caught with the drone, It's a HUGE freckin Bass" Not sure about the huge but this guy screaming to his wife cracks me up everytime.

It's low cost for a family like mine that's constantly contributing to underwater research projects, checking a reef section before leaving the boat could be handy. Saying that I doubt I would bother with one as we spend around 5-6 hrs in the water most days and that would just be a gadget to get in the way!!
