Here’s a product that gives you a set of eyes for underwater work at the boatyard. AquaLens is a portable underwater viewing system with live video feed and LED lights.
Mount the camera to a boat pole and position the AquaLens from the boat or dock, then watch live video, says Dawn Doraz, vice president of marketing at Aquabotix Technology Corp. of Fall River, Mass. The product weighs 3 pounds and is 5 inches in diameter. The 640-by-480-pixel camera has a 3.5-inch LCD screen. It requires 8 AA batteries and starts at $795.
