Here's the Clarke. You've got a frame that travels on tracks under boom. It has winches on it and the hatch covers are handled with that.

Thanks for the reply. Looking at the Joseph H Frantz, their trunk deck has an odd arrangement of telescoping hatches and unloading boom. The hatches open parallel and perpendicular to the center line of the boat and the boom is mounted between the trunk deck and the spar deck hatches. How would the conveyor system be configured to accommodate this arrangement ? Does anyone have any photos to show this ? TIA


Here's a couple photos. Actually 3.

Thanks for those. I was wondering how the tunnel belt would work with the elevator belt. The elevator on the Franz is between two holds so I can't think of how one tunnel belt would work. Any ideas ?

I was reviewing posts and just accidentally hit the delete button instead of approve. Someone asked a question similar to this: "How were trunk deck hatch covers removed if they weren't the telescoping type?"

Feel free to clarify your question if you were the original poster and sorry I hit the wrong button.
