Tom, I was going to do the same thing with my keychain camera. Probably won't see much in the ponds or lakes, would be fun to try anyway.

Ken, I am working on version 2. Current version is klunky and thick. Since I do not have a mill, I will try heating and shaping a thinner walled version or casting one and a better sealing system. It will be very interesting in what you come up with!

Over Father's day, I got a chance to run the Gato in open water. There is a huge difference to running it in a pool (very safe) to out "in the wild". It was time and so here it is.
Open Water Run (1 min 20 sec)

For the most part the Gato is now done. Unless I come up with something new or questions come up, there will not be any posts on here except one - what I would do different or keep. A final assessment.
