Determining the Ship’s Position by Running Fix The Running Fix Occasions  will  arise  when  it  isn’t  possible  to  shoot  three  or  more  objects to  fix  the  ship’s  position.  In  such  instances,  a  single  LOP  shot  on  a single  object  can  be  advanced  to  a  common  time,  resulting  in  a  running fix.  Advancing  a  LOP  requires  nothing  more  than  moving  the  LOP forward  on  the  same  bearing  as  the  ship’s  course  and  using  the  ship’s speed  without  consideration  of  any  current  present. Figure  8-25.  Advancing  a  LOP. A  running  fix  is  labeled  in  the  same  manner  as  a  visual  fix  except  that the  abbreviation  R.  fix  is  put  beside  the  fix  and  fix  time. Figure  8-25  shows  an  example  of  how  a  LOP  is  advanced  (moved)  to obtain  a  running  fix. 8-39
