Redstone Booster Recovery 3

Once the bow of the LCPV was even with the lip of the stern gate, it disconnected its towline and reversed away from the booster. Swimmers from the LSD then attached lines to the booster and it was floated into position over the saddles. I believe the person we see at the bottom of this image is a swimmer and not onboard the LCPV because we can reasonably interpret the bright rectangular area as the stern gate of the USS Fort Snelling.
