That would be nice. I've heard rumor of jets from the fairing halves in three places now but not seen it. Can someone link the video?

Also, EIII, GS, AChamp all seem to be on the Fishlips side of the harbor and GQ looks to be on the ASDS side.
So what is up with American Champion? Refer back to page 1 of this thread. There was a little confusion about it maybe having been involved in a search for CRS-7s Dragon but that was due to a misunderstanding of the last post being old. Then we had some images showing it was making round trips to take dredged material from the port out to sea. But it doesn't seem to be doing that now, its parked next to Go Searcher. Here is the kicker for me, and maybe some of you guys knew this before when American Champion was being discussed or maybe not but it just dawned on me - American Champion was used by SpaceX in recovering some of the Dragons from the Pacific. Yea, that Pacific way over there. So now it in Port Canaveral and sitting next to a ship working for SpaceX. What are the odds? Why? Or is this another American Champion?Also, EIII, GS, AChamp all seem to be on the Fishlips side of the harbor and GQ looks to be on the ASDS side.
Are you sure about EIII? My MarineTraffic app shows EIII *was* there 7 days ago but is now out of range.
That was American Islander.

I think there are two winches on Go Searcher. One under the hanging boat and other on deck port side. What do people think about fairing recovery procedure?
