Relieving the QMOW - 14221_357
Bridge Watch Personnel,  Continued Junior Officer On  many  ships,  the  JOOD  and  conning  officer  watch  stations  are of the Deck / manned  by  one  person.  In  this  capacity  the  JOOD  maintains  a  constant Conning Officer watch  on  all  radar  contacts  along  with  CIC  personnel.  He  or  she receives  reports  on  contacts  from  lookouts  and  gives  orders  to  the helmsman  and  lee  helmsman.  The  JOOD  also  encodes,  decodes, transmits,  and  receives  tactical  signals  and  acts  as  an  assistant  to  the OOD. Boatswains The  BMOW  is  in  charge  of  the  underway  watch  section.  The  status  of Mate of the the  BMOW  in  this  respect  is  the  same  whether  the  ship  is  in  condition Watch  (BMOW) of  readiness  I,  II,  or  III,  or  the  regular  sea  watch  or  in-port  watch  has been set. The  normal  peacetime  underway  watch  for  which  the  BMOW  is responsible  consists  of  the  helmsman,  lee  helmsman,  messenger, lookouts,  lifebuoy  watch,  and  lifeboat  crew  of  the  watch.  Besides  being an  enlisted  assistant  and  executive  arm  of  the  OOD,  the  BMOW  is  the watch  PO.  It  is  the  responsibility  of  the  BMOW  to  make  sure  that  all deck  watch  stations  are  manned  and  that  all  personnel  in  the  previous watch  are  relieved.  The  BMOW  makes  a  report  to  the  OOD  when  the deck  watch  has  been  relieved. The  ship’s  organization  and  regulations  manual  shows  the  sea  watch stations  that  must  be  manned  and  the  divisions  required  to  man  them. From  this,  the  BMOW  knows  which  division  section  leader  must  be contacted  if  any  person  fails  to  report  at  his  or  her  watch  station. Helmsman:  The  helmsman  is  responsible  for  keeping  the  ship  on course  as  directed  by  the  conning  officer. Lee  Helmsman:  The  lee  helmsman  is  responsible  for  operating  the engine  order  telegraph  (EOT)  and  relaying  information  between  the bridge  and  main  control. Lookouts:  There  are  normally  three  lookouts  assigned  to  each  watch section.  One  stationed  on  the  port  bridgewing,  one  on  the  starboard bridgewing,  and  one  aft  on  the  fantail.  Each  lookout  is  responsible  for reporting  any  contacts  or  objects  in  the  water  to  the  OOD  immediately. The  aft  lookout  also  watches  the  wake  for  personnel  who  may  have fallen  overboard. 11-24
