Many thanks to fellow ROV user David Murphy for taking the time to Skype with us this morning!  Very informative and a great opportunity for students to ask questions.  I have attached the topics discussed so we can reference this document next week when working on our ROV.  Excited to try to fix some of issues and follow-up with a dive!
