This patent discloses a stabilizing system for use in conjunction with a craneboom in which an object is held fast to a foam cushion within the system. A hook that forms part of the system grasps a sling holding the object and secures the object against the foam cushion. The object can be aligned by being rotated or tilted while held fast to the cushion. The object is prevented from swinging and swaying, thereby greatly reducing danger. Torpedo recovery, Patents. edc
