  • final details for build

    when will the final details be added to the build documents? how much flotation to add or how much weight to add to the various shapes?

    Working on it now. The suggested max weight for any object being lifted is 65 grams. Flotation for the gate is just whatever is required to lift the gate. please keep in mind that the build release was for regional challenges. The 2019 SeaPerch Challenge may be slightly different and the object weights may be higher. Also, regional coordinators may not follow the recommended course exactly as released.

      Will the gate float open when the latch is turned, or will the gate have to be lifted open after the latch is turned? IOW, is there sufficient flotation on the gate to allow it to float open on its own after the latch is opened or will the ROV need to lift the gate open?

        The gate will have floatation on it and will open when the latch is released.

          The suggested max weight for any object being lifted is 65 grams. Is this a dry weight or what it will weight in the water? I will be starting to build game pieces for practice, local competition in Feb. and possibly regional competition in March.

            quastga I am sorry that this post was missed. See the Canister Build Guide for weight info: https://www.seaperch.org/action/docu...ocument_id=740

              On November 3rd, you said, "please keep in mind that the build release was for regional challenges. The 2019 SeaPerch Challenge may be slightly different and the object weights may be higher."
              Does that mean the canisters at the National competition in Maryland might be heavier than the specifications published and the challenge course might not be as shown in documents?

              Or, should we expect the courses and objects to be according to the course build documents on seaperch.org at the national competition?

              Also, what is the pool depth for the obstacle course and challenge course for the June 1-2 events in Maryland?

                ​​​​​​​The details for the 2019 SeaPerch Challenge course will be released in April.
                The canister weights may be slightly different.
                The course layout may be slightly different, but the tasks will be the same.
                The pool depth will not be a factor, and the ROV maximum working depth will be release when the course details are released.

                  As we found out yesterday, pool depth is a factor - it affects the way the broken ROV needs to be transported to the Recovery Platform. This information should have been provided to EVERYONE months ago - not one week before the competition and not just if you happen to have read the right posts on the forum.

                    blanchetvickie The ROV parts weigh less than the heaviest canisters and are easily carried with a standard SeaPerch ROV so this should not be a problem.
                    The following is a video showing a standard SeaPerch recovering an ROV section.
