c. Stowage in Barges. Figure 63 shows the
arrangement for stowing six SEES or variants in
barge-type vessels. The vehicles should be loaded
symmetrically in sequences about the centerline of
the barge. They should be loaded in a manner to
counterbalance variations in centers of gravity.

When the SEE, HME, and HMMH are
loaded onto vessels that are adequately
ventilated by power blowers, such as
RORO vessels, the fuel need not be
drained and batteries need not be discon-
a. Loading. The SEE, HME, and HMMH can be
driven or towed aboard RORO vessels.

b. Securing. RORO, seatrain, landing, and at-
tack cargo ships have patented lashing gear (Peck
and Hale equipment is often used) and permanent
fittings on their decks. Four Peck and Hale lash-
ings, size 35M, should be used to tie down each
SEE, HME, and HMMH; two lashings, crossed,
from the forward tiedown points with shackles and
two lashings, crossed, from the aft tiedown points
with shackles to the "cloverleaf" deck sockets or
bulkhead fitting. Blocking and bracing is not
required with adequate patented lashing gear (fig
6-4). Use Peck and Hale lashing, type 4M or 35M;
one lashing from front bucket (SEE) or dozer blade
(HME) tiedown point and across the bucket or
blade to the "cloverleaf" deck sockets or bulkhead.
