Elgin 4 line drawing
The drawing the two divers using a “Robert Cutter” an hydraulic cutting device to provide a clean angled surface cut on the pipe so as to permit the weld to take place. The diver on the left is checking the resulting angle cut. The rov an “Apache” is sitting on the other pipe yet to be cut, and providing a picture to dive control and providing additional light for the divers. There is a work basket on the sea bed to the right containing the tools for the job. An air lift bag is being employed to lift the pipe to  a suitable working height.
