1" steel plates are used on a double tier bed of 12" crane mats to support the hillman rollers beneath the vessel.

Double-braced jack stands are used to support the elevated 1" steel tracks that support the vessel.

400 ton hydraulic jacks lift the vessel in a hand-off motion to ease the vessel onto the elevated passage.

When the vessel is secured, the jacks are pulled back and lowered.
