The article reports on the launch of Tyco Durable cable ship on December 30, 2006. It is a highly maneuverable, dynamically positioned cable ship that uses advanced technology to pinpoint its location and control operations. In deep waters, where the cables do not need to be armored against fishing gear and dragging anchors, they are about the size of a garden hose. Cables are also usually more than simple point-to-point lines. The ship drags grapnels along the seabed while monitoring line tension.
