hear from you! Everything is going very well. The cable and splicing worked out great, no problems.
I was going
to mention that about 6 weeks ago, a large container ship was making a turn at the Port of Oakland, and dropped it's large
anchor for some reason. They say the ship drifted some and stopped. Eventually, they raised the large anchor and discovered
they had snagged out power cable and pulled it up to the surface. The cable was moved out of position for hundreds of feet,
but no problems or damage occurred!
We never new about it until we checked our substation and noticed that the cable was going under
water at a different direction and was very tight. We reeled it up and re-layed, without any problems...
I can say
that if it weren't for the welded splices, it would have parted. We are very pleased and impressed with the work that you
and you men did for us in December. It was well worth the cost. I have always believed in "you get what you pay for"
I will be sending
you some color information sheets we prepared on the project along with some Great lakes hats for you and your men.
