Not the best example of an RN sea boat launch as the coxswain made a meal of that and was close to digging in and rolling over. It's not the easiest thing to do as you get sucked against the ship. I have had a few howlers myself and doing it at night can make your bum like a rabbits nose.

That engine is fitted with an umbilical system for launching. The hose pipe connects to the engine and pulls off when they pull away. I have fitted hundreds of them!!!
