Divers are placing grout bags under the hull of the Monitor in predetermined stabilization areas. These bags contain the grout (concrete) so that it may harden in place. Divers may only stay down for short periods of time, so they must rotate a number of divers throughout the day. A decompression chamber is on board the Weeks 526, which the divers must use after each dive. (photo: Monitor NMS)
