General Duties of the QMOW, Continued Ship’s  Position As  prescribed  by  Naval  Regulations,  the  navigator  must  report  the  ship’s Reports position  to  the  commanding  officer.  These  reports,  called  Ship’s Position  Reports,  are  prepared  and  submitted  three  times  a  day;  0800, 1200,  and  2000.  The  report  provides  the  commanding  officer  with  the ship’s  current  position,  how  it  was  determined,  distance  traveled  since the  last  report,  distance  to  the  destination,  and  compass  information. The  completed  report  is  submitted  to  commanding  officer  about  5  to  10 minutes  prior  to  the  appointed  hour.  As  the  QMOW,  you  may  be  tasked with  providing  some  of  the  information  for  the  report.  Normally  you would  begin  the  report  about  one-half  hour  prior  to  the  appointed  hour and  fill  in  position  and  compass  information  only. Observing Sunrise and Sunset Another  duty  of  the  QMOW  under  way  is  to  observe  sunrise  and  sunset. The  times  of  sunrise  and  sunset  are  normally  determined  for  the  entire transit  prior  to  departing  port.  To  observe  sunrise,  turn  off  running lights,  report  to  the  OOD,  and  make  deck  log  entry  when  the  Sun appears  on  the  horizon. To  observe  sunset,  energize  and  check  for proper  operation  of  all  running  lights,  report  to  the  OOD,  and  make  deck log  entry  when  the  Sun  disappears  from  the  horizon. Rendering Honors As  QMOW,  you  may  be  required  to  render  honors  to  passing  honors  to U.S.  Navy,  Coast  Guard,  or  foreign  Navy  ships.  This  applies  to  small boats  carrying  official  parties  also.  The  following  table  lists  the procedure  to  be  used  to  render  honors.  Complete  infomation  on  honors and  ceremonies  can  found  in  chapter  12  of  Naval  Regulations  and  BM TRAMANs. Close  aboard  equals  600  yards  for  ships  and  400  yards  for  boats. Step Action 1. When  close  aboard  with  the  bow  of  each  ship  about  to  pass,  the junior  vessel  sounds  the  command  ATTENTION  TO  PORT  OR STARBOARD. 2. When  abreast,  the  junior  vessel  sounds  the  command  HAND SALUTE. 3. When  the  senior  acknowledges  the  rendered  honors,  the  junior vessel  sounds  the  command  CARRY  ON. 11-40
