NAVIGATION FOR FISHERMEN AND BOAT OPERATORS - MARINE BULLETIN NO. 10
This text is intended to continue where Marine Bulletin Number 7, Chartwork for Fishermen and Boat Operators, stops. The only presupposed knowledge is either a grounding in trigonometry and chartwork or satisfactory completion of the exercises in Chartwork on Parallel, Plane and Mercator sailing. A study of these three sailing methods should help you make the transition between chartwork plotting a ship's course in sight of land and "deep sea" navigation plotting a course out of sight of land. Of course, many of the principles used in chartwork can be applied to both celestial and electronic methods of navigation. (The principle of the transferred position line is one example.) This text has been divided into two parts. The first part is confined to principles of navigation and the second, to practical problems, including calculations and the use of necessary nautical tables. Both this book and Chartwork have been pre-tested in classrooms and field work in the Department of Fisheries and Marine Technology at the University of Rhode Island over the last three years.
