Our tether has been attached--we opted for a lightweight tether with eight wires, two for each motor (3 drive motors and an additional motor that can be used for the claw). This allows our ROV to remain maneuverable in the water without getting weighed down by a heavy tether. Because electronics are being handled topside, there is no need for anything more than these wires.
