    ex Royal Navy mine hunting ROV for sale Gulf War 1 vet on ebay

    Post  ZM UK on Tue Aug 28, 2012 7:31 pm

    Hello

    I've just listed our ex Royal Navy ROV on ebay with auction finishing next week 4th September.

    Some navies still using this design and there's even a servicing company called CSIP in based in Weymouth, UK.

    Starting price £800 inc VAT. I can't add the link due to being new member but possible Richard can as I passed on the link this PM? :)

    Cheers

    Thanks for posting the link up, Nige..that ROV certainly is different, isn't it? I bet I know one person who will be reaching for his cheque book....

    Thanks for adding the link - much appreciated. Any questions welcome :)

    Other things that come to mind that all the sheet metal fairings that surround the payload bay and thruster mounting points are present and secured with simple bolts. The fairings were taken off so the front support could be positioned slightly further back and the nose cone unbolted. The top-side glass port in the nose is simply for a positioning light that illuminates at and close to the surface so the mother vessel can avoid running it over.

    Last point is the ROV is machined from aluminium so you always know there is a residual value to it.

    Cheers
