2-19. Ramp Bay to Interior Bay Connection (Alternate Method). In this method a ramp bay can be con-
nected to an interior bay that is not connected to another bay or anchored. The interior bay has been launched, all
roadway/roadway connectors have been engaged and all roadway-to-bow ponton travel latches have been latched. The
interior bay is positioned part way on land at the launch site. The ramp bay is launched and all roadway/roadway connec-
tors are engaged and all roadway-to-bow ponton travel latches are latched.
Extreme caution should be taken when connecting bays. Bays come together with extreme force and per-
sonal injury or death may result.
Position interior bay (1) partially grounded.
Position ramp bay (2) outboard of interior bay (1).
Install hook (3) in ramp bay roadway connector (4).
Back transporter (5) up to bay (2) and raise boom (6) fully.
Pay out cable (7) and connect cable hook (8) to hook (3).
Play in cable (7) and pull ramp bay (1) up to interior bay (2).
Engage roadway/roadway connectors (9).
Install T wrench (10) on lower lockpin screw (11) and turn counterclockwise and engage lower lockpin.
