Labeling the Course Line Procedure Figure  8-10  shows  a  typical  layout  and  labeling  of  course  lines.  The label  for  direction  is  the  letter  C  followed  by  three  digits  indicating  true course  in  degrees;  this  is  placed  above  the  course  line.  If  course  lines are  based  on  magnetic  headings,  the  letter  M  is  added  following  the digits. Figure  8-10.  Labeled  course  line. The  intended  speed,  or  the  speed  you  wish  to  make  good  with  respect  to Earth,  is  known  as  speed  of  advance,  or  simply  SOA.  SOA  is  also  used to  designate  the  average  speed  that  must  be  made  good  to  arrive  at  a destination  at  a  specified  time.  The  letter  S  followed  by  numbers  shows the  intended  speed.  This  is  placed  below  the  course  line,  usually directly  beneath  the  direction  label. Emergency Plotting There  are  times  when  you  will  be  required  to  plot  positions  in emergency  situations. The  most  common  of  these  is  during  man overboard  events.  Your  reaction  time  is  critical.  The  preferred  method is  to  use  the  WRN-6  to  enter  a  waypoint  and  then  drive  the  ship  back  to that  point.  You  may  also  use  this  method  using  commercial  Loran  C receivers. You  must  consult  the  WRN-6  or  Loran  C  operators  manuals for  step  by  step  instructions. Leading  Petty  Officers:  Post  detailed  man  overboard  procedures  at  the chart  table  on  the  bridge.  Hold  training  frequently  on  procedures,  strive to  obtain  fix  data  within  3  seconds  from  sounding  man  overboard  alarm. 8-17
