The watch is stood in those locations where approaching ships can best be seen or heard. (See figure 17.) It is the duty of the fog lookouts to stand a vigilant watch and to detect and report everything within  sight  or  hearing.  A  lookout's  hearing  must  not be  impaired  by  S/P  telephones.  Accordingly,  the lookout is assisted by a phone talker who is in direct or  indirect  communication  with  the  OOD  and  the lookout talker/plotter in CIC. The fog or restricted- visibility  lookout's  sectors  of  responsibility  are  as follows: FORWARD LOOKOUT: Stationed as far forward and as close to the waterline as possible. Sector extends 30° on each side of the bow (330° - 030°). Figure 17.—Restricted-visibility stations. 35
