The  Magnetic  Compass - 14220_56
Chapter  2 Compasses Introduction The  compass  is  the  best  known  and  most  widely  used  of  all  navigational instruments.  It  would  be  almost  impossible  to  obtain  precise information  on  headings  and  directions  without  the  compass. There  are  two  types  of  compasses  in  use.  The  gyrocompass  is  the compass  that  is  used  the  most  aboard  ship.  The  magnetic  compass  is used  as  a  backup  because  it  requires  no  electricity  to  operate.  This chapter  will  explain  the  operation  and  use  of  each  type  of  compass  and its  related  equipment. Objectives The  material  in  this  chapter  will  enable  the  student  to: Describe  the  components  of  the  magnetic  and  gyroscopic  compasses. Identify  and  correct  for  compass  errors. Explain  the  procedure  used  to  determine  magnetic  compass  error. Record  entries  in  the  Magnetic  Compass  Record  Book. Describe  the  process  of  swinging  ship,  conducting  compass sensibility  tests,  and  filling  out  the  compass  deviation  card. Determine  gyrocompass  error.
