I wondered about that also, but he'd probably pull a crescent out anyway to check the retaining nut that holds the antenna body to the masthead.

He doesn't take advantage of the tether on the wrench, but when I think back on all the tools I've dropped in the water, that may be an example of the movie getting a detail right!
