MANOEUVRING INFORMATION FOR THE PILOT/NAVIGATOR: ITS SOURCE VALUE AND LIMITATIONS

This paper attempts to explain the many different forms of manoeuvring information developed by naval architects, how they are derived, and the strengths and weaknesses of the information exhibited on the bridge. The paper is written for the navigator/pilot involved in piloting, to close the loop between that navigator/pilot and the naval architect through writing dialogue. It intends to make the navigator aware of the information that is available and also to develop an avenue for the naval architect to appreciate the needs of a navigator/pilot, and through the various regulatory bodies tailor manoeuvring information to meet those needs. There is also discussion of the efforts of Japanese pilots to rate and keep records of actual ship manoeuvrability. The hope is that through knowledge will come safer and more economical pilotage.
