Abstract : The primary objective was to determine the capability of the Services to use the vessel for deploying selected heavy, outsized LOTS equipment to a site where fixed port facilities do not exist. Of special interest was the loading of a DeLong B barge with a 300-ton capacity crane on it, which is used as a barge- temporary container discharge facility (TCDF). The SEABEE is the only ship with the lift potential to deploy this item.
