Bridge Watch Personnel The  numbers  and  assignments  of  personnel  on  watch  vary  from  ship  to ship,  depending  on  the  ship’s  size  and  availability  of  personnel. The  watch  on  the  bridge,  under  way,  normally  consists  of  the  following personnel: Officer  of  the  deck  (OOD) Junior  officer  of  the  deck  (JOOD) Quartermaster  of  the  watch  (QMOW) Boatswain’s  mate  of  the  watch  (BMOW) Helmsman Lee  helmsman  (who  mans  the  engine  order  telegraph  and  RPM indicator) Sound-powered  telephone  talker Messenger Lookouts In  the  following  text,  we  will  discuss  the  duties  of  the  OOD,  BMOW, and  helmsmen.  The  Quartermaster,  as  an  assistant  to  the  OOD,  must know  the  duties  of  all  bridge  personnel. Officer of the Deck The  officer  of  the  deck  under  way  is  designated  in  writing  by  the commanding  officer  and  is  primarily  responsible,  under  the  commanding officer,  for  the  safe  and  proper  operation  of  the  ship. The  following  is  a  list  of  the  OOD’s  primary  duties  as  prescribed  by  the Standard  Organization  and  Regulations  of  the  US.  Navy,  OPNAVINST 3120.32.  The  officer  of  the  deck  under  way  will: 1.  Keep  continually  informed  concerning  the  tactical  situation  and geographic  factors  that  may  affect  the  safe  navigation  of  the  ship,  and take  appropriate  action  to  avoid  the  danger  of  grounding  or  collision according  to  tactical  doctrine,  the  Rules  of  the  Road,  and  the  orders  of the  commanding  officer  or  other  proper  authority. 11-21
