May 2019 - Ready for deployment!
Students have fully prepared their miniboat for launching. Now we just have to find a deployer! Stay tuned…
September 2019 - Awaiting departure from Providence, RI
The miniboat Titanic was brought down to Rhode Island and placed aboard the A/C Polaris Highway thanks to Captain Jim Slattery Jr (who also helped launch The Legendary). She will be deployed mid-afternoon on September 14.
September 14, 2019 - Launched at sea
Thanks to the crew of the A/C Polaris Highway, the Miniboat Titanic was launched into the Gulf Stream in the afternoon of September 14, 2019.
February 2021 - Quiet after 506 days at sea
By February 2021, after 506 days at sea, the GPS batteries were too low to continue and send a signal. The miniboat is still out there, and we hope one day it is recovered.
