Protective "roll bar"


#1

I’ve been using my ROV to survey boat hulls. This has caused some scratches to the acrylic main tube and some damage to the ROV shell.
I came up with this protective “roll bar”.
I had to drill a few mounting holes. There are no fasteners, it’s held in place by tension.

Very nice… What material did you use?

Thanks Ron.
I used cold rolled steel, easy to weld.
Then I powder coated it so hopefully it’ll last a while.
