Ropes and mishaps

BY: Albert Ferrer



Just when everything was going fine, the ROV in and out of the water, rocky ocean floors, fish, sharks, sponges and coral reefs – getting into the swing of things – when all of a sudden we hear, “watch out there’s a rope in the water”. We thought that nothing too bad had happened to the Ranger as it can deal with all sorts of mishaps, but not this time. Half way into the dive, the rope we hadn’t seen got tangled up in the propellers, leaving us frustrated. We had to go back to port but thanks to the efficiency of the captain, first officer and the logistics coordinator we were relieved to find out the Ranger would soon be back on track.
