East Coast #Dragon space capsule recovery vessel, GO Searcher, has finally reemerged after being off-grid past 10-days. Appears to be sporting new hardware. #SpaceXArmada #CrewedDragon : St John's Ship Yard, Palatka FL @nasaspaceflight

Also, what seems to be some processing area's/whiteroom (?) on the deck and a Dragon lifting boom on the rear end. Nice!

For illustration, similar lifting rig in action on the Pacific recovery ship:

If it was a tractor beam emitter, we would have seen the prototype on Mr Steven to guide the fairing halves in.  ::)
