Did they give up on the winch deal?

Bruce, ....makes those 14 passes logical.

My experience wasn't quite that bad, but only because the ship was bigger. The seas look about the same.

That video mentioned trials, so I suspect this was for "winchless" ops. The Lynx had a winch system, but not for a boat that small. The system incorporated a harpoon that shot a grappling hook kind of deal into a grid on the deck, then winched themselves down.
