So I have the Cargobob, and I attempt to grab the sub from the refinery, however everytime I try it instantly tips me over. I lower the winch, it grabs on, then soon as it hooks the helicopter spins sideways and goes upside down and crashes. I tried grabbing the sub by the side rails, and the front rails. Soon as it latches on, helicopter flips and Im screwed. This a glitch?? I've tried 5 times in a row now.

I ended up moving the sub more into the middle of the ocean, and with perfect piloting it grabbed on.... still as wobbly as a mother f*cker. So I am getting it to the location I want, and with it constantly shaking around the top latch door pops off?? LOL. I see it fall down to the ground below.... so when I finally got it to the destination and dropped it off, it automatically just sank lol. GFG Rockstar.

Unrelated, but how long is the winch on the Cargobob?

Pretty long.... you can pick up something about 10 feet or so with the heli, you don't need to land right on it.

@Backlynx That Sub' is only available at Trevors hanger is you chose to do the Cargo ship mission usin' the Sub'. Other than that it's only available at the purchasable dock...

It's not a bug, there's just a physics issue with trying to lift the sub out of the water. Pulling it out causes it to wobble, when then shakes your cargobob and tilts it on its side. I had the same problem, but if you land the cargobob on the dock, then get in the submarine and beach it in the shallows near the base of the dock you should be able to lift it no problem. I struggled for hours trying to lift it directly out of the water but successfully snagged it from the sand the first time. I think it's because it doesn't have all the water rushing off it then so it won't swing as much. You still have to be careful when you fly it, since if you're wreckless it can still crash you.

You cant pick it up because its the mechanics what keep the sub in that place. No matter how big the storm is it doesnt get pushed away from there. ANd to break that "gravity" you need to enter. And then you can get it out more easily .

It's at his airfield in Sandy Shores. There should be an H in a circle symbol on your map, that's where it is. It takes up to a game day for them to actually deliver it though.

I had the same problem, drove the sub to the beach and picked it up without any problems.

BTW, If you wanna save like 2 million, you can actually steal the heli from the military base anytime, just do it fast and with full armor (or cheats).

No problem with lifting it up, maybe you guys are just plain too clumsy to play the damn game?

I guess it's 'stuck' to the docks.

I had the same problem, the water was like superglue.

You can lift it from the docks also but you have to move it a little first into free water so you do not trip the heli. Or better pick it up from trevor's hangar it works every time
