Three mechanical sharks were used during the filming of Jaws. Two were dubbed platform sharks, because they were perched on a crane set on a platform 30 ft. (9m) underwater. Connected to a nearby barge by pneumatic hoses that allowed the sharks to rise, advance on the surface of the water and then dive, the contraption encountered problems almost immediately. “We barely got started when the salt water permeated the platform and the different metals reacted with each other, which caused electrolysis,” said Lynne Murphy, who worked on special effects. “When the platform came out of the water to be tested and adjusted, the combination of the air and the salt corroded the hell out of it. It was a goddamn mess.”
