Range Height Table
(See figure 11.) At a height of 50 feet, for example, the  distance  to  the  horizon  is  about  16,000  yards (8  miles);  at  a  height  of  100  feet,  the  distance  is about 23,000 yards (11-1/2 miles). Practice estimating ranges to other vessels in company whose distances are  known  or  can  be  easily  determined.  If  your ship  does  much  formation  steaming,  you  will  become pretty good at judging distances such as 500, 1,000, and  2,000  yards.  Until  you  become  proficient  at estimating   distances,   use   such   phrases   as   “close aboard,”   “on   the   horizon,”   “hull   down,”   and so forth. (See figure 12.) HULL  UP —The ship is in from the horizon. HULL DOWN —The   ship   is   over   the horizon.  Only  a  part  of the   superstructure   can be  seen,  but  the  hull  is not  yet  visible  on  the horizon. ON  THE  HORIZON   —The  waterline  of  the ship's hull appears to be on or near the horizon. CLOSE ABOARD —The contact reported is extremely close to own ship. In addition to ranges and range references given, any geographic references available can be used to aid the bridge and CIC in locating the ship sighted.
