Er....I'll take a shot in the dark, here. My guess would be 'Not wanting to bounce off the deck, hit a rotor on anything or otherwise end up dumping a very costly helicopter and its crew into the sea'. I'd say it would be worth the wait to get it right.

Worth the wait until the sea calmed, or worth the wait until the chopper ran out of fuel?

Heavy roll when he started - but very calm when he actually touched down - BORING. My granny could make that while having here tea!
