Default crashing sound of dinghy on sub

Quite some time ago I asked if here was a way to remove the crashing noise when dropping agents or supplies made by the dinghy. I recall there was and it worked but have lost it since. Can someone point in right direction?

There may be a technical fix but the operational fix is to put the sub in low speed astern when submerged, then surface. Your momentum will take you clear of the raft if done properly.

Exactly Mios 4Me. Also, since the boat is always dropped to the right side of the sub, if you do either a slight left rudder while dropping, or prior to dropping, get the boat going very slowly back, with a slight right rudder, the "dinghy" will ding the side once maybe, and then be off... The sound you hear is the collision alarm, and you really don't want that to stop. It sounds when you run aground also - which you shouldn't do, of course ...

Other way: once all stopped at the right place, order slow backwards and When 1 or 2 knots then hit the drop button...i never heard the crashing noise

as soon a launch pop up arrives, I've lost control of sub until I click launch.
