The goals of the Summer 2000 expedition are to stabilize the Monitor's hull with bags filled with grout (concrete) and deploy a 85 ton Engine Recovery Structure. This structure will be used next summer (2001), when the Navy/NOAA expedition team will attempt to recover the Monitor's unique steam engine. (illustrations: Jeff Johnston)
