  • I would say depreciation would be more than 10% per anum.

    Many companies write off their equipment over a 6 year period.

  • Hi guys,

    I've just seen the Far Saga dodging about Montrose.

    Any idea what she is doing here? Or who she is going to be working for?

    Is she going to be in the North Sea for the season or just in these parts for a dry dock or such like?

  • Hi Sean
    What James Said is very correct, also the model of bike that you Had choose I think is coming in 4 different frame size (S-M-L-XL) The correct frame size depend from your high and weight, for example in my case I am 1.85 for over 90 kilos I am comfortable with a frame 53 approximately equal to a XL.

  • 02/19/14--00:55: Oceaneering bonus program
  • Hi Red, Congrats and many happy "Returns". Anything can be claimed as a deduction or tax credit on a US tax return. The returns will be processed and all is fine until the day that the IRS has reason to question an item claimed in a particular year. They can go back several years under the statute of limitation. When and if the agency requires an audit it is best to have the documentation which will prove that the taxing authority mentioned in the return as paid has indeed received the listed funds.

    One way to test this theory and guarantee an audit is to list “Tea Party” as a line item under Charitable Contribution Recipients on your US Income Tax form 1040. Should your return survive the ensuing scrutiny it will be bullet proof.

    Thanks for the heads up. SERS Group of companies has been alerted of this SCAM only last week via a disgruntled student and potential students.

    On further investigation it can be clearly seen that the SERS Group of companies are NOT actually involved in this. SERS Group of companies are involved with training but only at a corporate level.

    Please see the DISCLAIMER below from the SERS Group website.

    SERS Group is an independent subsea service provider. SERS Group and its employees, agents and representatives, are in no way, shape or form affiliated with any companies or entities registered in South Africa. No inference should ever be drawn that we have any links or reference to any South Africa companies or entities. We are an accredited IMCA member and provide subsea services with high quality.
    SERS Group is currently the subject of a hoax domain connection campaign. The hoax domain connection is linking one of our company websites to an alleged business in South Africa to create an illusion to the members of the public that the alleged business is part of SERS Group. The hoax domain connection is in no way acknowledged, approved or authorised by SERS Group. Please visit us at our authentic website: and do not click on suspicious links, e.g. “SERS Group South Africa” or “”.

    Please see below an extract of an email sent to the website hosts by the SERS Group of companies.


    I am one of the directors of Subsea Engineering & ROV Services Pte Ltd (in short SERS Pte Ltd). SERS Pte Ltd is a member of SERS Group who is a subsea service provider established in early 2011.

    The domain under your registrar is legally owned by SERS Pte Ltd and the current registered owner xxx was an ex-employee of ours who worked as free-lance consultant. During his employment, he was assigned to set up and run the company website and all the website-related expenses were paid by SERS. is the property of SERS Pte Ltd and xxx failed to set the site up after one year so SERS decided to purchase another domain Now xxx has left the company and we are taking legal action against him to retrieve all the assets he purchased abusing SERS’s fund, including all the equipment, hardware, computers, vehicle in his South Africa factory and the factory deposit/rental.

    Recently to our surprise, the company website is being directed to Ezze Marine, a business owned by xxx without SERS’s authorisation. This is a violation to our ownership and fraudulent activity. SERS Group, its affiliate, its and its affiliates’ employees, directors, agents and representatives are not in any way shape or form affiliated with Ezze Marine or alleged “SERS Group South Africa”. Our lawyers are preparing a legal suit for infringement.

    We demand you to take the following actions immediately:

    1. Disconnect the link from to Ezze Marine
    2. Freeze or transfer the ownership of to SERS Pte Ltd or one of the registered directors.

    Further to all of the above IMCA have been notified regarding the SCAM that Ezze Marine are running.

    Again for clarification, this course is NOT BEING RUN by SERS GROUP.

    If anyone would care to know who xxx is so that you can send him a personal email then feel free to PM.

    Savante won't screw you over. Talk to them.

    There are patent lawyers around that can assist with getting the patent process rolling. Call one up and have a chat as they often offer a free initial consultation.

    Can't really compare this site with the ROV group on fB... Exclamation

    This is here is more "serious" - that is not meant to sound pretensious; where as the one on fB is too much of the mud.slingin' on the village square type of vibe. Dig?



    We've had our fair share of 'mud.slingin' on here over the years Smile

    Food for thought though..... was first online in 2000. The first static pages were uploaded when were based in Ao-Nang, Thailand. Yep! The site is 14 years old Smile
    We ran with static pages and a separate discussion forum for the first 3 years.
    In 2003 ROVworld started using a CMS (Content Management System)
    FB was launched in Feb 2004 when ROVworld was 4 years old.
    The language of this site is English. No doubt about that.

    FB owners could shut down the FB ROV group right off the bat and make it disappear. Sadly the administrator could do nothing about it as they do n ot own the FB ROV group (FB Inc. does) Not anything I would wish on the group administrator, but it is an inherent weakness of using a public site funded by a large corporation.

    Needless to say, 14 years down the line the long term survival of has been secured and life will go on as usual, no matter what happens to Facebook Smile

    I wonder if I'll be posting on here at the time of ROVworld's 20th birthday? Wink

    Thank you for recommendations, but before writing a post, I've read all the topics about Seaeye vs Sub-Atlantics. I've found a couple of great advices for me, but got those new questions above.

    Obs ROV is for seabed survey.
    Depths 0-1500m (may be 2000m).
    Couldn't say about currents.
    Locations are Baltic Sea, North Sea, Norway Sea, Barents Sea.
    Of course weather will be (spring, summer) as best as it possibly can (0-2m wave high).

  • 02/21/14--01:22: ROVworld on Facebook
  • Group information updated at:

    Added ' English Language Only' (Not sure if FB will be happy with that is this day and age of political correctness!) Wink

    Added some tags to help find the group on FB. Oddly no truly relevant ROV tags available, so needed to settle for the likes of:

    1) 'Underwater'
    2) 'Marine Engineering'
    3) 'Ocean'
    (only three tags allowed)

    Group membership has doubled in 24hrs. Smile
