I didn’t watch the video, but is there a part where a winch brakes a tugboat with no rebound, and the tugboat isn’t using its engine?

That’s the scenario in the show. The winch brings the drone to...

I posit a significant portion of these minor tugs and course corrections would occur during braking, which we didn’t see (and didn’t hear).

@Spheric

What you term “the talk” is not at all the same as “coming out”.

Like so…



For it to be “coming out”, it has to involve coming out.

I’m trying to make sense of “[m]y guess is the winch side didn't brake it to the final stop”.

If the winch side isn’t causing the braking, the only other option is the drone firing its rockets.
