    Ask a captain who has pipelaying experience. He will have more actual knowledge of what works and doesn't than any architect or theorist. The men at sea have to live and work with the drawing board errors that got welded into reality. I could tell horror stories of ships and tugs I've captained. I have towed and set anchors for pipelaying barges and jet barges that bury the pipeline, high speed precision work. But I never operated the pipelaying barge.But a captain who has is your ideal source.
