    Hello All at Boat Design.Net;)

    Landing Craft Articulated Bow door / Ramps.

    I have been searching the Net for design details on how these doors work, (mechanically)
    Most fold back over the raised section horizontally when underway.
    This allows a far better field of vision forward than just simply extending the ramp section.
    We would prefer to use Aluminium for all the components on a 42 foot Landing Craft,
    The max weight over the ramp / door would be less than 10,000 Lbs.

    Can anyone assist with some links or photos ECT?:idea:

    Cheers Specmar.Aus
