Figured we would Kick of discussion About bins or "Cultivate Pearls".
We suggest the silhouette color be White, Yellow, Orange or Green. We have found these colors give the best visibility at the bottom of the pool.
We also are strongly opposed to a push button or lever action as are other teams we have discussed this with. Any sort of mechanical or hinged device is prone to failure, Failure of this mechanism during a competition run can have devastating effects on team's success through no fault of their own. Adding some push button device also makes it more difficult to simulate competition conditions. Finally as we and many other teams are significantly into our mechanical fabrication adding the mechanical infrastructure to operate this new as yet unspecified apparatus may be difficult or impossible. We would like to add that we are not supposed to ever adding a more complicated cover system, we suggest that if one is to be used in future it be brought to competition the year before so that teams may evaluate, and test the reliability over the course of a year to work out any inconsistencies.
