Abstract : The present invention enables a towed oil-filled cable to be serviced from the fantail of a ship without laying a large section of the cable on the deck of a ship. The cables have spaced apart service points which have removable plugs so that fluid can be inserted or bled from respective cable sections. As the cable is payed out, each section can be serviced at it's respective service point so that air bubbles can be removed and oil inserted before the cable section descends into the high pressure ocean environment.
