Chopper off the stern

Taking some downtime after all the excitement of the past several days. A neighbor boater took some pics of us taking pics of the USCG chopper rescue drills.
They demonstrated two different rescue techniques. Day one, the rescuer jumped into the water from the hovering chopper and helped the "rescuee" into a lowered basket. On Day two, the rescuer was lowered into the water using a line, and tied the "rescuee" to that line, and they were hauled up together. And we got to watch all this from the comfort of our cockpit. So cool.
