They probably come from either distortions in the viorgraphs or in the distances end camera. data Overt, but mana44 be pinned down to these factors. Incensistencies were especially noted in trying to develop date for the framework as called for in items 8, 90 100 1.10 sad 12 listed above; therefore, it was not possible to develop reliable values for these item. 2Vo overall. values are given on the attached sketch froa which estimates eau be rode of the desired dimenaions. Educe sections at the filamework do not lie in exactly the same position on all the trailers, and zarta of them exted. above the /1.210 between the cradles as much as two feet, it has been mezettetea that the framework is actually a ntriber of *mow sorts temporarily lashed to the trailer in knock down position for transport. This could moan that they are vexed when s_ regular shaped object is placed on the cradles, or that the object carried is very irregular in 0013e figuration such as a boat hull. (c) The above listed dimension are accurate to no more than ten percent. This large error percentage is given because checks made by different proce4nres did not agree any better than this amount.
