TM 55-607/NAVSEA OP 3221 Rev 2
(b) Aft lower holds are generally more conducive to the sweatboard-to-sweatboard stowage technique. Typical
stowage of 750-pound-bomb loads in lower hold number 5 is illustrated in figure 9-61, which shows how loads can be
stowed in an area having severe camber and sheer angles. Loads at the sweatboards, when properly positioned, do not
require full-block structures, except the loads in the top tiers. Also, throughout the stowage in the lower tiers, voids that
do not exceed one-third the width of the load above require neither tables nor blocking. All voids ill top tiers throughout
the stowage require full-block structures. The use of decking is illustrated due to the obstructions on the ship's deck;
decking would not be required in most cases.
