Just finished my OpenROV 2.7 build yesterday and it passed a test in the bathtub. Before testing in open water I wanted to make an easy-to-follow checklist for pre- and post-dives that can either be printed and put in a binder or laminated for a re-usable version.
Using information in the Operator’s Manual, I built 2 checklists in OneNote (because making lists in it is super easy), a pre-dive and post-dive list, both which are categorized by component or process.
I get easily distracted, so having a more concise hardcopy list that I can check off as I go is going to be a huge help for me! I thought it might be useful to others here in the community so I have attached it as a PDF. Feedback on improving the list is welcome!
V2.0 - Clarified that the straps need to be tightened when wet and added some “critical” and “important” tags to items.
