This cruise was originally schd. for URI / Endeavor.  Due to the Gulf Oil Spill, the Endeavor was tasked by NSF to go down to the gulf and assist in supporting science. 
This cruise was then assigned to Oceanus. 
Jumbo Piston core and track will be welded to 5 deck plates.  WHOI Mech Shop will drill the bolt holes in the deck plates once the proper location is decided on June 11.  When the deck plates are bolted down, the piston track will be placed on top.  Then the track will be welded to the deck plates. 
After the cruise is over, the tracks and deck plates will need to be cut apart.
