C.S.S. Hunley Rises Again - With a Little Help from Her Friends

www.underwater.com [cached]

Friends of the Hunley called in Leonard Whitlock, then Manager of the Department of Marine Systems with Oceaneering Technologies, to act as engineering advisor for recovery efforts.Whitlock left his job with Oceaneering to devote full time to the Hunley project.

Researchers who studied the Hunley in her underwater resting place concluded that there was a risk that recovery would result in the submarine's breaking apart unless support was provided during the operation.
...
Whitlock decided to look elsewhere for help, and after a careful search for a company with the equipment and experience to perform the lift of the Hunley safely, he invited Titan Maritime to complete the project.Titan Maritime, with offices in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Brazil, has taken part in numerous successful diving operations and retrievals of sunken vessels.

Leonard T. Whitlock

In 1973, Leonard received a Bachelor's degree from Florida Tech in oceanography and ocean engineering. His first job was with the Harbor Branch Institute of Oceanography on the submersible crew and in 1977 supervised the first manned dives on the USS Monitor ironclad off of Cape Hatteras. In 1978, he joined Oceaneering International as a commercial diver working in the offshore oilfields of South America, Southeast Asia and Gulf of Mexico.He worked his way up from the bottom (literally) to become the Project Manager for the Americas Region working with hyperbaric welding repairs, non-destructive testing (NDT), Remotely Operated Vehicles and Atmospheric Diving Suits. In 1980, he participated in experimental saturation chamber dives at Duke University using special gas mixtures, which set the world record of 2,250 feet. In 1984, he joined the American Bureau of Shipping as a Senior Surveyor and engineer to oversee the worldwide construction and installation of offshore structures, moorings and undersea pipelines. Leonard got tired of living out of his suitcase and joined Lockheed-Martin in 1989 as the Test Director for the development and rapid prototyping of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles for the US Navy. He re-joined Oceaneering Technologies in Upper Marlboro in 1993 as a Senior Program Manager and soon was promoted to Manager of the Marine Systems Department, responsible for commercial and government programs. To increase his management skills, Leonard went back to school and received a Master's degree from Johns Hopkins University in 1998. Last year, he decided to become an independent consultant working closely with commercial, government, and non-profit organizations in project planning, operations and business development. He was the Senior Project Manager for the recovery the Civil War submarine H.L. Hunley off of Charleston and is currently providing engineering support during the submarine's excavation and conservation. Leonard is currently working with the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Naval Historical Center, the National Park Service, and Portsmouth Naval Shipyard's Deep Submergence Systems Program Office.In addition, he is providing project management and systems engineering support to advanced marine systems for Arion Systems, Inc. He is also a member of the Marine Forensic Panel for the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, and is the treasurer for the Marine Technology Society's Washington Section.

Titan called in Karlissa-B, its 51.7m x 24.4m six-leg barge equipped with DeLong jacks and 318 metric ton Manitowoc platform ringer crane.The six-leg jacking system assures maximum stability on the seabed and removes concern of a "punch through," which sometimes occurs with three- and four-leg jack ups, producing catostrophic results.
The use of DeLong jacks with pneumatic grippers and pneumatic lifting cylinders, offered three characteristics of great importance to Friends of the Hunley, Inc.
