DTG2 from Deep Trekker

 

” The DTG2 from Deep Trekker comes complete with a standard 50 meters of tether that connects you to the Superbright LCD Screen Controller and offers the first completely portable, remotely operated vehicle (ROV). Built to last, the DTG2 is constructed of a cast-aluminum body that encases a 360-degree window and allows the user to have an unprecedented field of view, whether checking out the bottom of the boat or exploring the ocean floor. Typical battery life ranges from six to eight hours. “

 

 

Watch this video of the DTG2 and see just how cool it is …

 

 

 

 

 

    As cool as an underwater ROV might be we personally can see ourselves having much more fun from a gift of the V2 , state of the art , waterproof , floating drone from SeaHex which is a steal at $8,000 … (sarc off)

SeaHex V2

 

” The SeaHex V2 changes the stakes for the ever-growing market of quadcopter drones. The big brother of the V1, which allows for safe water recovery, the V2 provides the impressive ability for both water landings and takeoffs. When coupled with the offshore fishing package, the SeaHex V2 lets you create a program to search a half-mile grid in front of you while sending a live feed back to an iPad or a smartphone onboard. That’s a huge advantage when looking for baitballs or a feeding frenzy.”

 

 

And here is a video of the SeaHex V2 in action …

 

 

 

 

 

    While we have highlighted a couple of the most expensive items on the list , do not be deterred . There is something for all budgets among the great gift ideas for the fisherman/boater you love at Marlin Magazine

Holiday Gift Guide 2014: The 36 Best Toys

 

 

 

” Sweaters and skis are great, but there’s nothing better than opening up a present and finding a fun new toy inside, whether you’re six or sixty-five.”

” Da Vinci’s Trebuchet

Age 8+ / $30

  Make sure to glue the gear on in the right direction—that’s step one, by the way—and an hour later you end up with a working medieval war machine inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s sketches. With the proper counterweight, it’ll launch a barrge of marbles right into an approaching phalanx of green army men.

middle school physics demo. Just put some
water in a 1-liter bottle, screw it onto the
end of the tube, use a bike pump to
pressurize the contents, aim, and fire. “
