Summary: A guide to the basic principles of beaching and retracting the LCM(3).
Description: Reel One. Approach and technique for actual beaching. Management of the ramp and retracting the boat. Handling of a broaching boat. Reel Two. Method of crossing a sand-bar using one screw in reverse to wash away the sand and one forward to keep the boat orientated - by reversing the procedure as often as necessary "you can dig your way through." A final reminder that the coxswain needs to vary his techniques to fit the surf and beach conditions encountered.
