RAMP BAY CONTROLS AND INDICATORS (Contd)
LOAD RECEIVING PINS There are four load receiving pins on the bay;
one at each end of the outer ponton located in a recess below the splash plate.
They are non-removable to the operator and function both as lifting points
and for anchoring bridge or raft assembly to shore.
CLEATS There are four cleats on the bay; each is located next to a load
receiving pin recess and splash plate. They are used to hold ropes and cables
for IRB operation.
BELAY CLEATS There is a belay cleat located on each outer ponton
splash plate near the handrail stanchion at the connecting end (front) of the
bay. The belay cleats are used to secure ropes for drawing bays together
during bay-to-bay connection.
