The cat5 only handles the power for the relays coils so voltage drop shouldn't be a problem as the draw isn't that great. Main power for the thrusters is sent down the 16 gauge wire and you will get a certain voltage drop over this. You could always run batteries on the Rov itself and this would eliminate the 16 gauge wire in the tether altogether.

Is anyone following up on this? maybe using an arduino to allow speed control? I ready to build using the 3/4 thrusters 1200 gpm sump pumps. Any help or references you could pass my way would really help
