"A scrambling, heroic effort had to be made on several occasions by the deck force of the icebreaker to save the helicopters, which were breaking loose from their mooring in the mountainous seas between New Zealand and Antarctica. These vital pieces of equipment built by Sikorsky weigh some four tons each and with the ship rolling upwards of fifty degrees had become almost unmanageable and a threat to the lives of all on deck who had to run great risk to secure them from crashing over the side." - Commander Standish Backus
