A survey of the common components of marine pipelaying systems and the currently used combinations covers barges, stingers, launchways, reels, winches, tensioners, pontoons, caissons, chambers, submersible vehicles, lay barges, tie-in barges, lowering barges, reel barges, and pull barges. The potential applications of other systems to the problems of laying pipe in deep water are discussed, and it is suggested that economical solutions to these problems are within the capability of present-day technology, without excessive developmental effort.
