Hi Tim,

Welcome to the forums, it certainly sounds interesting.

Have you any devices in ming that will measure the depth?

Welcome to the forum!

So you would like the depth of the Atlantic measured as we go across, right? A few questions:

- How often would you like the measurements made?
- How big does the device need to be to get those sorts of depths?
- What sort of voltage is required for the unit?
- Any idea of the power/current draw?
- Obviously the sensor would be in the water, but how deep into the water for it to work? Will it work pinging from the surface? If not, we may have to tow it behind us.

I'm sure I'll think of more in due course, but they will do for now. :)

My emphasis.

More than AB could ever provide.

Typical, deep water (>1000m) bathymetry device: http://www.jetasonic.com/bathymetry-son ... iew/b-400/.

i accidentally deleted Tim's user account when cleaning up some spam rubbish, i've been in contact with him on the fishpi forums and he said he'll resign up here.
