RAFT ASSEMBLY AND DISASSEMBLY (Contd)
j. After rafting operation is complete, swing raft assembly perpendicular to
shore and secure using taglines.
Start raft disassembly from downstream end of raft.
k. Disassemble raft assembly by following Bridge Recovery, Swinging Bridge
Method (WP 0038 00) and Bay Retrieval procedures (WP 0039 00).
Figure 1. Typical Raft Configuration.
Add anchorage as needed.
f. Connect ramp bay to interior bay and secure connected bays perpendicular to
shore using taglines (WP 0030 00, Ramp Bay to Interior Bay Connection).
g. Launch remaining interior bays (as required by raft size) and connect them
to raft assembly.
h. Launch and secure second ramp bay and connect it to interior bay at end of
Raft assembly must be anchored to shore prior to
loading/unloading of vehicles.
i. Determine rafting procedure (WP 0042 00, Longitudinal Rafting Procedure or
WP 0043 00, Conventional Rafting Procedure) and anchor raft assembly.
