Micro-ROV Tether

Post by qfolkner » Mon Apr 08, 2019 5:07 am

Are we allowed to use something like a hand crank to reel in the Micro ROV tether from the surface?

1) You cannot pull the micro ROV tether from the surface. No exceptions. No pulling by hand, by manual winch/crank, by electrical winch/crank.

From the Important Forum Rulings post:

Companies cannot use a powered (or manual) surface winch/crane to lift the cannon (or other devices).

Good luck.
