SeaBotix LBV Performs for Lake Erie Diving

Posted by Irina Tabakina

SeaBotix’ client, Pat Murphy, President of Lake Erie Diving, reported a new personal distance record for internal pipe inspection with his SeaBotix LBV300XL.  “It was an internal inspection of a 48-in. (122 cm) intake pipe in Lake Michigan,” Murphy said. “The pipe was 6,140 ft. (1,872 m) in length and I did it in one run from shore in just under two hours. I did not go above Gain 5 [half of full power]. I look forward to going the maximum umbilical length I have of 6,760 ft. (2,061 m) someday, now that I know the vehicle will pull it.”
