General Duties of the QMOW, Continued Maintaining As  you  now  know,  maintaining  the  Ship’s  Deck  Log  is  a  big  part  of  the Logs QMOW’s  duties.  You  must  also  maintain  the  following  records: Magnetic   Compass   Record   Book Standard  Bearing  Book Weather   observation   sheets Passdown   log The  Magnetic  Compass  Record  Book  must  be  filled  in  each  time  the ship  changes  course  and  on  the  hour  and  every  l/2  hour  as  explained  in chapter  2.  For  example,  if  a  ship  changed  course  at  1947  an  entry would  be  made.  The  next  entry  would  be  2000  and  2030,  and  so  on until  the  next  course  change.  Gyrocompass  error  is  entered  in  the remarks  column  each  time  it  is  computed. The  Standard  Bearing  Book  is  used  to  record  bearing,  range,  and location  of  ATONs  or  radar  points  used  to  fix  the  ship’s  position,  during piloting.  Remember  to  enter  the  latitude  and  longitude  of  every  ATON or  radar  point  used  to  fix  the  ship’s  position  beginning  on  the  inside  of the  back  cover  or  as  directed  by  the  navigator. As  you  learned  in  chapter  10,  weather  observation  must  be  made  each hour  whenever  a  ship  is  under  way.  You  should  begin  your observations  about  15  minutes  before  the  hour.  This  allows  you  to completely  record  the  observation  data  on  the  weather  observation  sheets prior  to  obtaining  the  hourly  fix  of  the  ship’s  position. The  passdown  log  is  used  to  pass  pertinent  information  down  from watch  to  watch.  Make  sure  to  record  any  information  passed  down  to you  that  concerns  any  aspect  of  the  watch. Plotting to support Weapons During  some  operations,  you  may  be  required  to  maintain  a  plot  in support  of  live  firing  exercises.  Maps  that  use  a  grid  system  of coordinates  are  used  to  maintain  the  plot.  This  type  of  plotting  requires specialized  training  involving  both  OSs  and  QMs  and  is  scheduled  by the  Operations  Department.  The  OSs  maintain  the  manuals  and instruction  that  give  complete  information  on  his  topic. 11-36
