Relieving the QMOW Relieving the Watch Always  arrive  on  station  ahead  of  the  scheduled  time  for  relieving  the watch.  There  is  nothing  more  unprofessional  and  aggravating  than  a  late relief.  More  importantly,  you  must  obtain  much  information  about  the general  situation  before  you  can  assume  the  watch.  The  general  pattern of  relief  is  as  follows: One-half  hour  before  the  hour,  the  relief  arrives  on  station.  The  relief will  make  inspection,  read  logs  and  turnover  sheets,  and  obtain  other information  from  watch  standers.  Fifteen  minutes  before  the  hour, watch  standers  are  relieved. When  you  relieve  the  watch,  make  sure  you  obtain  all  information  the person  you  relieve  may  have  for  you.  Such  information  includes  verbal orders  to  the  wheel  that  still  are  standing,  steering  peculiarities  because of  unusual  weather  situations,  or  anticipated  aids  to  navigation. When  you  arrive  on  the  bridge,  you  must  assess  the  general  situation. You  should  have  a  good  knowledge  of  what  is  happening  aboard  your ship.  How  much  information  you  need  depends  to  some  degree  on  the situation  your  ship  is  in  at  the  time.  If  you  are  in  company  with  other ships,  you  will  need  much  more  information  than  you  would  if  you  were steaming  independently.  Never  relieve  the  watch  until  you  have  been briefed  on  the  ship’s  position  and  turning  or  rendezvous  points. Additionally,  you  should  sight  all  navigational  aids  (visual,  radar,  or other  electronic  means)  that  are  being  used  to  fix  the  ship’s  position. Look  over  the  Ship’s  Deck  Log  entries  of  the  previous  watch  and  see  if there  is  anything  pertaining  to  your  watch.  Report  officially  to  the  OOD that  you  have  relieved  the  watch.  As  previously  mentioned,  you  serve as  the  assistant  to  the  OOD.  In  this  capacity,  you  are  very  close  to events  occurring  on  the  bridge  and  at  other  stations.  Your  nearness makes  it  possible  for  you  to  observe  the  watch  personnel  and  the  jobs they  are  performing.  Frequently,  the  OOD  is  involved  in  a  problem with  maneuvering  or  navigation  and  may  fail  to  notice  the  omission  of small  details  in  the  ship’s  daily  routine.  The  plan  of  the  day  or  pages from  the  ship’s  organization  book  listing  the  routine  of  the  day  are available  in  the  pilothouse.  It  is  an  important  part  of  your  job  as QMOW  to  remind  people  concerned  when  the  time  approaches  for performing  each  detail. 11-25
