sure all parts are on hand and that the toggle pins and bolts are seized with short sections of wire and attached to the ladder to prevent them from being lost over the ship's side. The  next  step  is  to  rig  the  upper  platform. Remember to be careful in lining up the brackets when you are engaging the bolts. Many a hand injury has occurred  from  careless  or  unsupervised  rigging operations. Once the upper platform is in place, the next step is to secure the ladder to it. This is an area where the ship's plans and design must be followed. Some ships have the ladder stowed against the rail. To attach this type ladder, you use a series of outriggers (arms swung out from the ship) to lay the ladder on and seat the ladder to the upper and  lower  platforms.  On  ships  that  do  not  have outriggers, the J-Bar davit can be used to support the ladder over the side to attach it to the upper platform. Another method is to use a ladder that engages pad eyes Figure 4-18.–Parts of accommodation ladder. on the side of the ship and holds them in place by a two-fold rigged to the superstructure. Depending on the type and class of the ship, rigging procedures will vary. Again, the ship's rigging plans must be used. Now  that  the  ladder  is  attached  to  the  upper platform, the lower platform and the H-Frame must be rigged. It is easier if the H-Frame is rigged to the lower platform while it is still on deck. Once the H-Frame and the lower platform are rigged on deck they must be worked over the side to attach to the ladder. This can be done by using the falls from the J-Bar davit or from some  other  suitable  attachment  point. The ladder is now taking shape and nearly ready to lower. Rig the bail and bridle to the ladder and attach the wire pendant between the bail and the J-Bar davit. On some ships, the pendant is rigged between the bail and a pad eye alongside the ship. 4-19
