Not really sure where to post this, i am thinking about buying, an underwater video camera so i can easily check my boat at the slip, to see if my wheels need cleaning , if my zincs are gone and if i need to get a diver to clean it. It would also be nice to be able to "see" if the diver you hire is doing his job.. anyways has anyone tried this. Does anyone have a used one they want to sell?.. seems like it would come in pretty handy around the marina..

thanks

Are you looking for remote viewing capability, and recording? If simply want to look while you are there, there are several available that come in a marine style case that includes a monitor, with the camera, including ir, on a 60' to 100' cable. Kind of cool really.



Like this, but I have seen them cheaper.

if you don't mind getting wet (getting in the water to video or take pics of it yourself), then you can get an olympus 770sw digital camera for about $350 that is fully waterproof to 10 meters and will take decent videos as well. they carry them as sam's club too.

Thanks.. it's not so much that i dont want to get wet, it is just the my boat is in bayou chico...(not sure all my shots are upto date) plus im a non swimmer..and not very good at holding my breath.. anyways it seems like it could be a pretty good tool.. no need to haul out, or hire a diver.. just tie wrap it to a pole and do an in slip hull , running gear survey..
