This 1972 MOD 1 Landing craft is a welded steel, twin-screw type craft. It was built to be used to transport cargo, troops, and vehicles from ship-to-shore, shore-to-shore, or in retrograde movements.
It may be utilized for lighterage and utility work at harbors. It is intended for use in rough or exposed waters and is capable of operating through breakers and grounding on a beach, remaining upright and tight, and retracting from the beach under its own power.
The craft is propelled by two twin-engine propulsion units and is capable of a speed of nine knots when fully equipped.
The main deck is aft, with the pilothouse centrally located on the deck. The engine room hatch is located in the deck forward from the pilothouse and the lazarette hatch is located in the deck, aft from the pilothouse. The deck contains a bolted cover plate over each engine to facilitate engine removal and installation.
The cargo well is forward. Dimensions are 42 ft. long and 15 ft wide. The ramp is lowered and raised by a winch located forward in the hull. The winch is powered by a hydraulic motor and is normally controlled from the pilothouse.
The engine room is below the main deck between the cargo well and the lazarette. Hydraulic system tanks are located in the engine room.
The lazarette is aft below the main deck. It contains the two diesel fuel tanks, fuel shutoff, and steering cylinders, steering linkage, and ball valves, and counterbalance valves. Space ( used for ammunition originally ) can be used now for gear and misc stuff is provided in the lazarette.
Two starting systems are provided for the diesel engines. Separate hydraulic systems are provided for steering and for the ramp hoist.
The pilothouse is topped by a detachable canopy. A searchlight is located on the canopy roof. Front and side windows open to provide ventilation. Windshield wipers are mounted on the front windshield.
