A HEAVY HOSE IS RAISED FROM THE SEA BOTTOM FOR CONNECTION TO A TANKER
A heavy hose is raised from the sea bottom for connection to a tanker by connecting it through a parallel buoyancy hose to an air compressor. The compressed air displaces the water from the buoyancy hose and then through a check valve, from the service hose. The floating hose is then connected to the tanker. In an example, the air compressor and a sea water pump, are carried on a buoy to which a hose from shore-based storage is also connected.
