General Duties of the QMOW, Continued - 14220_367
General Duties of the QMOW General Duties You  will  spend  many  hours  standing  watch  as  QMOW  on  the  bridge. Your  duties  are  diverse  and  at  times  difficult;  this  is  especially  true when  you  are  operating  with  other  ships.  In  this  section  of  the  chapter we  will  begin  to  put  together  topics  covered  in  other  areas  of  the  book. The  overall  goal  is  to  show  practical  application  of  what  you  have learned  and  introduce  you  to  a  few  new  topics. The  general  duties  of  the  QMOW  are: Maintaining  the  DR  plot  and  updating  the  ship’s  position. Recording  entries  in  the  Ship’s  Deck  Log. Observing  and  reporting  the  weather. Assisting  the  OOD. Let’s  take  a  look  at  what  is  required  of  the  QMOW. Fixing the Ship’s  Position The  ship’s  position  must  be  determined  and  plotted  at  regular  intervals. Normally,  the  navigator  determines  the  fix  interval.  The  interval between  fixes  depends  on  the  area  in  which  the  ship  is  operating.  As the  situation  changes  the  navigator  may  change  the  fix  interval. For  example,  if  the  ship  is  scheduled  to  make  an  rendezvous  with another  ship  in  4  hours,  the  fix  interval  may  be  changed  from  every  hour to  every  l/2  hour.  The  following  table  gives  generally  accepted  fix intervals  for  routine  situations. Situation Obtain  a  fix every Open  Ocean  Navigating,  no  land  within  50  nm. hour Open  Ocean  Navigating,  land  is  within  50  nm,  but  not closer  that  25  nm. l/2  hour Coastal  Navigating,  land  is  within  25  nn,  but  not  closer that  10  nm. 15 minutes Coastal  Navigating,  land  is  within  10  nm,  but  not  closer that 5 nm.
