Abstract : A submerged cable is fitted with one or more tethered transducers that arc rotatably supported on the cable between clamped collars spaced apart to receive a standoff device. The device has pivotably connected flat portions which define semi-circular lower parts to so receive the cable. Upper triangular panel portions can be spread apart to receive the cable, and clamped together by a clevis that is connected to a riser or tether for the transducer.
