This craft was introduced in early Febuary and has been through a lot of Bridge Construction. The plan was to release

it with the Camelback Bridge Set but the Bridge was completed as a land project, then the Cantilever Bridge Project

wasn’t working out after some serious amount of hours spent attempting to reach a small Island using Seahorse, this

can be seen in the videos.

During my Camelback Bridge Project I had some trouble with my system and lost Seahorse and the Camelback

bridge, both were rebuilt. The Wheel House has an open view for the Kerbals to look out and long lrnge shipping is not

a problem for this big guy!

The Cantilever Bridge Project plan was is to setup Piers for the decking of the Bridge to rest on. I have made success

with setting Piers. Needless to say this project made quite a few twist a wasn’t working with the physics of the game.

I’ve also noticed near the location where the Bridge was being built there was a beautiful underwater view of the

Coastline with a steep drop and it made me think if I could visit this area with a Submarine it would be neat, this stirred

up an idea of an Exploration Vehicle ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle). This is when I decided to add Sherlock &

Watson.

Operations:
I recommend using full throttle and using the Action Groups for controlling Seahorse, at takeoff you will be facing the

rear of the Runway as you near the coastline hit AG2 and this will reverse all engines and hit the brakes to reduce your

speed. Enter the water near 20 m/s or under and under is better not to damage the ROV’s. Pressing AG2 again when

in the water will get you back to forward motion. AG3 will make a turn to Port (Left) AG4 will turn to Starboard (Right).

AG5 will move you sideways to the Port and AG6 will move you sideways to the Starboard. AG6,7,8,9 are all lights

and AG0 is all Door ways.

Watson Operations: Keep in mind this is not an Aircaft and handling is not good in the air, landing is extremely hard if

even possible not sure I haven’t landed it yet.
Note: Control from the Coupler on top the craft.
