Skydiver docking procedure

Hi, guys!
Taking a day off (not due to the virus) and was pondering how Sky 1 docks with Diver 1. I came up with this procedure, using my corrected drawings based on the original artwork of Jonathan E. Enjoy.

P.S.
Someone asked for a detail of the docking mechanism. Here it is.

Very well thought out and convincing. I had assumed the Sky part returned to land and was re-installed on the Diver part in the dock. i.e. a one launch per sailing setup.

I often wondered about it myself when watching the series as a kid. Chris Bentley's book confirmed that it was supposed to be able to return to Diver and dock.
