Wet-test of two Sea Perch machines!
It was a perfect day just before Spring Break. The older guys continue to polish their subs so Jeremy, Nate, and I went out and tried ours.
Jeremy spent an evening at our house finishing up his submarine. Notice the cool underwater running lights…
Isaac noticed a pulled wire to a thruster motor and repaired it and recast it. All systems are go…
Jeremy and Isaac were definitely the heroes of the day.
Our larger sub needed much more buoyancy so Mr. May and Nate added some empty soda bottles.
Our wet-test showed us that we need better thruster mounts and that we need better props. We’ve already redesigned the sub and we’ll try again next week over the Spring Break holiday.
The older guys continue to work away on their subs. They promise to be ready by race day.
That’s Kevin’s Dad in the yellow shirt. He’s been the propeller master and has found and made the best in the city! We are glad to have him join the group.
