HIGH-BANK LAUNCH OF BAY (Contd)
Where several bays will be high-bank launched and
more than one CBT is available, it is faster to designate
one or more CBTs as launching transporters and
position them perpendicular to the water approximately
30 ft (9 m) from the edge of bank. All other CBTs are
used as loading/unloading transporters.
Perform steps d through z to prepare transporter (s) to
be used for launching operations only.
d. Position CBT perpendicular to water approximately 30 ft (9 m) from edge of
bank, then apply service brake (3), move transmission selector lever (2) to
N (neutral), and pull PARKING BRAKE control (1) out.
e. Check hold-down lock (5) at both sides of BAP to ensure they are in AUTO
ENGAGED position; handles (4) should be in.
Ensure both transload rollers are placed in the UP
position to protect outer pontons of bay. Failure to
comply may result in damage to equipment.
f. Move both transload rollers (6) to the UP position. (Refer to WP 0009 00.)
