Radical new cargo handling concepts, such as those found on the Lykes SEABEE design which lifts two fully loaded 1000-ton barges on an elevator located at the stern of the vessel, invariably bring about some interesting and unforeseen problems. This paper gives a review of the many items that must be considered during the construction and operation of a new system concept as well as pointing out some of the specific difficulties encountered. The required pre-planning for operations, procedures during guarantee, and the effect of outside influences on the system are also presented.
