Abstract : The fiberglass tensile strength member described by this specification will connect a body submerged to a depth as deep as 400 feet in the sea to a fast moving surface vehicle. Use of a fiberglass strength member having a high strength per unit cross section in conjunction with an efficient, streamlined fairing (to reduce hydro-dynamic drag as well as contain an an electrical conductor) results in lower overall drag than attainable with existing metal cables and associated fairings.
