On May 12, our team set out on Mr. McLane's boat for Manatee Pocket in order to recover Jack & Rose from the water. We removed the essential parts of Jack & Rose, except for the strut, which is the railing attached to the piling. Team members reported that the device reeked of river water and was mainly covered in algae and barnacle bio-fouling. After carefully removing the device from the water, the team brought Jack & Rose on shore in order to clean it and prepare it for transport back to our school. Since then, we have been preparing our EurekaFest display configuration of Jack & Rose. The only components we are not bringing to EurekaFest are some of the non-essential support beams. We are so excited to finally be sharing our finished product with you all!
