(3) In cases where the cargo is at such a distance from the coaming as to make A-framing impractical, the
bulkhead can be braced in the manner illustrated in figure 7-16. Braces bear on the bulkhead at the same level as the
top of the cargo. These braces are secured with 2by 12-inch cleats fastened to two layers of 2by 10-inch or 2by 12-inch
runners, which are nailed to the deck or wedge-fitted to a solid ship's structure. The length of the bracing member is
determined by maintaining a 3: 1 ratio (3-foot run to 1-foot rise), when possible. Uprights are extended to the overhead
Figure 7-16. Construction details for nonheat securing structures of bulkheads with deck bracing.
