      Hi Messi,

      so this is what you do when your not playing football? lol

      My job isn’t to fix cars, I know a little about cars but if anything big went wrong with mine i would take it to the garage. I fix the AUV and it depends on what goes wrong with it before we can work out how long it takes to fix. The first step is to look at the symptoms, most of our problems will be hard to see. Then we try to isolate the problem to the fewest amount of parts. I then look at these parts to see whats broken and try to repair or replace them.

      But to try and make sure we dont have problems, I do a lot of planned maintenance, which is a bit like a car service but instead of once a year we do it weekly when at sea and 3 monthly when we store in on land.
