Give the Autogyro pontoons. It lands in the water next to the sub, and a crane brings it back aboard. This is how the Japanese subs recovered their seaplanes I believe. A lot of very early aircraft-carrying ships did this; I think some cruisers or battleships carried a seaplane early on to spot for their guns.
