A cross-section of Rainier at stations 3 and 4 looks something like this - looking aft. Fuel for Station No. 3 is pumped from the tanks below; to ships on her starboard side. Pallets from Station No. 4 may contain Dry Stores, Refrigerated Stores, or Ordnance.

A cross-section of Rainier at stations 3 and 4 looks something like this - looking aft.
Fuel for Station No. 3 is pumped from the tanks below; to ships on her starboard side.
Pallets from Station No. 4 may contain Dry Stores, Refrigerated Stores, or Ordnance.
The pallets are kept steady with lines extended from the Sliding Padeye.
Carriers are always served from this side.
The pallets are moved about this deck by fork lifts.
Vern and Ron’s tour started at the Quarter Deck near the forklifts.
They proceeded to this port side via the ladder to the next deck up.
This Photo describes the Port side the best.
The tour group emerged on to this port side from the doorway just aft of rig No. 8
The group proceed forward towards the bridge.
There are two types of rigs and each have their own type of winch.
View forward as we emerged from the door way
A Transmission hydraulic winch system maintains constant tension between the lines used for underway replenishment. The automatic ram control has sensors that constantly monitor the tension on the cables and tell the hydraulic system whether to pull in cable or reel it out.
The Ram Drive Winch is different too.
After a small line is shot over to the receiving ship, stronger transfer lines are set up.

RIG 2 CONTROL HOUSE
This process occurs as both ships are traveling at about 25 knots, with waves being whipped up from the ships wakes.
The tensioned hauling line travels up through the fairleads on the receiving ship
This rigging was designed for fast transfer of dry cargo. The Sliding Padeye makes it possible to keep the load from swinging around under the transfer trolley.

Lightweight nylon lines are used to moor the ship. In Vern’s time they used big 4 inch manila hemp lines.
