Research people......
We're in the way, and instead Sally hands me a cross-section of the cable which carries the electricity from the substations to the land. It`s a piece of art as well as an elegant piece of engineering. When I admire it, she laughs and says that quite a few people have said they`d like to take it home.

I made part of the assemblies for mapping the ocean floor. Don't know if it was for oil or communications.

Haven't laid real undersea cable. but I built a series of scale models for a project, one of which was very similar to the first GIF. (Strait of Belle Isle, for those who care.)
