Time to Build the Nautilus

The team was able to obtain six 8″ diameter pontoons that will be used to build our new boat, the Nautilus, which will compete in the 2021 RoboBoat. They will be cut to size and brackets welded into place to support a 3′ by 4′ deck. The boat’s thruster will be mounted by adding to the existing pontoon bracket. A housing consisting of several compartments will be welded to the top of the deck to house our components. Flyovers will be created to hold the GPS. The tank, our ground test platform, will be modified to except this deck so the equipment can be moved between the boat and tank to accommodate testing.
