Pushing ramp bay with BEB after disengaging
transverse upper couplings and ponton swivel hooks
may cause the bay to fold, and possible injury or death
to personnel may result.
Ensure all gravel, rocks, mud, and other debris are
removed from openings at unfolding stabilizer mounting
brackets prior to folding bay. Failure to comply may
result in jamming during folding operations.
BEB operator will maintain bay alignment with CBT
during retrieval of bay.
ag. Signal BEB operator to position bay (1) so connecting end is in line with
winch cable (2).
ah. Connect cable hook (5) to bay lifting lug (4). Ensure latch (3) is closed.
Ensure bay is clear of boat crew personnel and
obstructions before winching in bridge bay. Ensure all
personnel are safely off bay before lifting. Failure to
comply may result in damage to equipment or possible
injury or death to personnel.
During bay retrieval in fast moving water or strong
crosswinds, it may be necessary to position a boat with
the push knees against the downstream bow to keep
bridge bay aligned with transporter.
