Presenter:
Sponsor:
Boston Sea Rovers
Fee:

Description:

I am sure you have seen those amazing “flying videos” and fantastic “bird’s-eye view” images and wondered, “How do they do that?  Can I do that? Is it hard?  Are they expensive?  In this workshop, you will get the answer to these questions and many others regarding drones and their uses.  Once the domain of the military and high-end industry professionals, drones have become available and affordable to the consumer market.

Join the Boston Sea Rovers as we present the Aerial Drone 101 for SCUBA Divers workshop by Bert Perry that will leave you with basic understanding on different types of drones, how they work and how they can be fun and useful tools for a diver, to get a different perspective on a dive site, the ocean and beyond.  You learn how to choose the right drone for you and your budget and feel confident to get out and start flying and shooting some amazing photos and videos.  We will touch on basic photography and video setups, the use of ND filters and post editing software, basic maintenance and specific operating and safety features to look for in a consumer drone.  You will also get to see a variety of different commercially available and custom-built models to understand what they can do, and not do.  Conditions permitting, we hope to have a chance to take the class outside for some actual flying too.

Who is that Masked Man?!? Meet & Greet/Q&A with the New Massachusetts State Underwater Archaeologist

Friday, October 1, 2021
Room:
Ipswich
Time:
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Presenter:
Sponsor:
Boston Sea Rovers
Fee:
$35

Description:

 

Established in 1973, the Massachusetts Board of Underwater Archaeological Resources (BUAR) is the sole trustee of the Commonwealth’s underwater cultural heritage. Under Massachusetts General Laws, the BUAR is charged with encouraging the discovery and reporting, as well as the preservation and protection, of underwater archaeological resources. These sites and objects represent a nonrenewable scientific resource—statements left by time to be preserved through their documentation for public study and benefit. While underwater archaeological resources are commonly historical shipwrecks (there are more than 3,500 reported shipwrecks within Massachusetts waters), they also include ancient submerged Indigenous sites flooded by sea level rise, abandoned coastal infrastructure, and submerged aircraft. The Commonwealth holds title to these resources and retains regulatory authority over their use. While access to Massachusetts’s underwater archaeological sites is unrestricted, no person may remove, displace, damage, or destroy any underwater archaeological resource, except in conformity with permits issued by the BUAR.

 

In 2019, after 32 years of operating under Vic Mastone’s leadership, well-known New England marine archaeologist, Dave Robinson, was hired as the BUAR’s new director. This workshop will provide an opportunity for New England divers to meet and talk with Dave and learn more about the BUAR, Massachusetts’s underwater archaeological resources, the BUAR permitting process, “Exempted Sites,” the “SHIPS” program, steps to take if you find something, and opportunities for getting involved in citizen science activities with the BUAR.
