      jehughes There will not be build guides. The platforms are approximately 3' x 3' with 1" PVC pipe.

        Please see the following questions/clarifications for the revised mission course
        1. It looks like the ROV recovery parts might use the internal caulk saver floatation with painted tops? Will the pool noodle slices be used on the top bar? Since we now have to carry the ROV recovery parts, rather than push them, will there be additional floatation? If so, can you tell us how much? We don't have a way to weigh them underwater.
        2. It looks like ROV recovery parts are considered objects like canisters. And if so, if one is dropped out of play it is irretrievable and points are forfeited. Is that correct?
        3. Will the vault open towards the center (view path) of the course as shown? Or off to the side?
        4. I see there are extra canisters now should one or more become out of play. Is there a penalty (points or time) for dropping a canister off the course and using a backup one?

          jehughes I appreciate your detailed questions.
          1. The ROV Recovery parts weigh less than 50 grams in water. There is one 6-1/2" long and two 3-1/2" long pieces of 5/8" diameter foam in the top pipe and vertical pipes.
          2. If the ROV Recovery parts are dropped to the pool bottom they are out of play.
          3. The vault will be oriented as shown, however we reserve the right to change the orientation. All lanes will be identical.
          4. There is no penalty for dropping canisters,

            Is the pool salt water or chlorine. We noticed a difference in bouyancy at regionals. Will there be an area where the teams can test their bouyancy on Saturday after registration?

              Shanklincj There will be a test tank available, but it will not have pool water. We are working on a solution so teams can ballast their ROVs in the pool.

                Will the teams be able to test the magnets, to ensure they work, before competition?

                    Our team was thinking of constructing our own course to practice on in our local pool. Any chance there will be a course build manual of sorts or any specifications on what parts are needed to construct the field (Both Obstacle and Rescue & Recovery Courses)??

                      KickOnBro We are working on the 2020 SeaPerch Challenge course design, and plan to release much earlier this year. Material will be posted in this forum in a new topic for 2020 Challenge as well as on the SeaPerch.org website.
