Solution: The transfer barge was designed with two ramps, the shore sideramp accommodating the tidal changes and the loading barge side ramp to accommodate changes in barge draft. The shore ramp was supported on a seawall and the barge ramp was supported on the gunwale of the barge. The lifting system for the ramps provided a float position that maintained complete vertical freedom for the transfer barge.
