    It was hard work at times, the visibility was often very bad due too dredging in the vicinity, I want to pay tribute to my fellow diver friends. Nobody got hurt, considering that this job went on and off for almost two years, I think that is great accomplishment

    The submarine cables were moved back into their designated area, new cable laid, thousands of pairs of wires spliced.

    After moving all the cables back to the original area, we buried the cables in a trench using a air lift and jetting with stream of water. The shallow ends were covered with concrete "coffins". I don't have many underwater pictures since the visibility was almost always bad because of the dredging and also my hands were always full of tools and stuff. BTW, my buddy Helena worked on this job as other of my scuba diving friends

    And then there was the dredging barge ... When they grabbed by mistake the phone cable, we had to stop what we were doing and go to the rescue. Lots of headaches. Where we had advantage over the previous company, was that we gave up their oil drums after first couple days of working the cables because they were very difficult to move in the currents. we replaced them with lift bags and instead of using umbilical hard hat divers, we did all work on scuba. Single diver could place all the bags by swimming along the cable and place it every ten feet, take out the regulator out of his/ her mouth and add just enough air for bag to flap above the cable, their yellow color made it easier to see in the murky harbor waters too. Another diver then followed with air hose from the low pressure compressor aboard the Egabrag and filled the lift bags. As the bags lifted desired section of the cable to the surface, our 21' Boston Whaler with 200 HP outboard tied to the cable and started pulling. Surveyor on the shore called on the radio when we were far enough. Scuba divers then deflated the bags, and repeated the process at the next section ...

    As we prepared for the long trip, man from the telephone company walked down the gangway and asked if we are for hire. The crane on deck and shiny white hull probably got his attention. Of course we were available to earn some money, the reconstruction drained the bank. Every so often, section of San Diego Bay has to be dredged so the aircraft carriers and very large ships can dock at the Navy Coronado site. There are submarine cables from San Diego to the base and they have to be moved in order to allow the dredging. And that where we came in. The phone company was not happy with the previous large tug and crane barge company and were looking for new contractor. We inherited pile of stuff from the previous operation, mainly the modified oil drums used to lift the very heavy armored cables. The communication cable has a lead shield and that is protected with steel armor, it weighs close to 46 pounds per foot. Unfortunately, the cable does not run in a nice line. Since they had to have extra length to accommodate the moving, there were many kinks and loops from previous jobs which complicated the job. In some places we had to cut sections out, so twisted they were.
