Ultimately we did not end up finding the ROV. The dock that it was tied to was removed and we are guessing it was either dragged to a different part of the lake, or the tether snapped and we need to search the exact spot the ROV was tangled. I hope to go back sometime this summer and continue the search. We are also going to follow up on a lead with the person who removed the dock.
On August 3, 2014 OpenROV #589 was left of the bottom of Fallen Leaf Lake. It was being used to inspect some chains that were holding a dock to the shore. The tether was tangled in fallen trees, resulting in the ROV being stuck on the bottom. The decision was made to leave it there and conduct a long term test of the ROV at depth. It has now been 9 months and it is time to retrieve the ROV and see what state it is in. Follow along to learn the state of the little lonely robot.
