I was going to say the same thing reference the impleller,

Are we sure this was not a greenpeace operation rather than the Navy?

Re comments about the impeller on the OP video - if you look closely you will see and hear that the engine is supplied with water through a hose at the rear until the final lowering manoeuvre

They were running on flush muffs for most of that time, though it it did take a while even after the muffs had been removed.

Perhaps it was someone in training.

Agreed. Of he many entertaining moments I was particularly impressed by leaving the side of the ship by going forwards.

I wonder how many times these guys have been introduced to the Stinger.
