a. Water Recovery Retrieval of either the ramp bay or interior bay onto the transporter from water is performed as
detailed in the following steps. The crew required consists of an operator and an assistant. The operator will drive and
be responsible for operation of the boom and winch. The assistant's duties are to handle the winch cable and give hand
signals to the operator during retrieval and tiedown on the bay after retrieval, with the operator responsible for the comple-
tion of the tasks. A minimum of 30 in. (76.2 cm) of water is required for retrieval to allow the bay to close and lock properly.
Steps (20) through (24) may be completed at the staging area or another area so as not to interfere with retrieval operation.
(1) Ensure aft tiedown hooks (1) are in the vertical position.
