Probably....a quick and cheap way to recover it compared to any other.much cheaper than leaving it and it being more damaged, causing pollution etc if it falls apart.

How ironic would it have been had the yacht survived the beaching, only to get smashed against the rocks as the Huey lifted it off.

Glad the guys in the RIB lived to tell the story. Those rocks are pretty nasty and it could so easily have ended very differently.

I'm staying in one of those chalets at Bovisand over the Bank Holiday weekend. Hope the weather (and air traffic) is quieter then!

Didn't think for a minute it was actually going to lift it. Some impressive lifting figures here: Vietnam War Huey lift capability - Straight Dope Message Board

That's one way to avoid paying launching fees!

You just get the feeling that once out of sight they just cut the rope and let the boat slam the water and sink!
