Title: FAIRING FOR TOW-CABLES
Abstract:
The fairing has a streamlined, segmented, tail portion (63). The tow-cable (40) passes through a hole (20) in the nose portion (18). The hole has a large clearance on the cable which allows frictionless rocking of the fairing side-to-side. This prevents any misalignment of the fairing from being locked in by friction. In addition, the segments (80, 90) are either provided with a physical mis-alignment control (84, 95), or the segments may be supported in tension, so that the individual segments do not rub against each other. Pliable links (101; 112) are provided between segments that could otherwise rotate freely relatively, to give some torsional stiffness to control the fairing during winching.
