Ship launching project steps:
1.1 Remove obstacles that block the rolling of the marine airbag during the launch of the ship and obstacles under the ship. Make sure the slide is smooth and clean. This step will not be hindered by any object during the ship launching process to ensure the safety of the ship launching process. There may be sharp, hard objects such as large rocks or shells washed up on the shore. They can also puncture boat launch bladders, so it’s important to clean them and adjust the slide rails.
1.2 Connect strong components such as the bow and mooring posts to the movable pulley block of the traction winch to tow the ship.
1.3 According to the technician’s operation plan, place the marine launching air bag under the bottom of the ship and inflate it to the specified air pressure. When the bottom of the ship is higher than the bridge piers and the weight of the hull is all pressed on the marine launching airbag, remove all the bridge piers and deflate the marine airbag appropriately to balance the force.
1.4 All work-related crew members are ready to board the ship.
1.5 Consider the width of the water area, select a suitable launching location, loosen the wire rope and move the ship near the water area. Cut the wire rope or untie the shackle when appropriate, and the ship will automatically enter the water area. Launch into the water with the help of sliding power.
1.6 After the hull is completely submerged in the water, drag the ship to the dock, measure the draft at the fore and aft, and check whether there are leaks in each cabin.
1.7 Retract all marine launching airbags and record launching information.
