Planning and Constructing Restricted Water Tracks Gathering Information The  most  critical  track  the  QM  will  construct  is  the  restricted  water track.  This  is  because  the  ship  is  at  its  most  vulnerable  time  when transisting  dangerous  channels.  You  must  plan  for  all  contingencies.  It seems  that  Murphy’s  law  applies  most  often  when  a  ship  is  in  a  channel. Chart  selection:  Professional  and  thorough  chart  selection  and preparation  is  the  foundation  on  which  safe  piloting  through  restricted water  tracks  is  based. Effective  chart  selection  requires  a  combination  of  skill  and  judgment. Here  are  some  questions  to  consider  when  selecting  charts  for  restricted water  tracks. Has  the  best  scale  chart  been  selected  for  the  given  area? Have  conspicious  NAVAIDs  been  lost  due  to  choosing  the  largest scale chart available? Are  the  latest  editions  of  selected  charts  available? Research:  During  the  research  phase,  all  reference  material  on  the  port should  be  consulted  and  notes  made.  Often  port  directories  and  fleet guides  will  provide  invaluable  data  concerning  entering  or  departing  a given  port.  Often  information  concerning  best  approaches,  traffic separation  schemes,  tidal  currents,  berths  available,  channel  depths,  and so  on  are  listed. Taking  detailed  notes  on  this  information  will  speed  the  process  of constructing  the  restricted  water  tracks.  Once  you  have  gathered information  about  the  port  and  selected  the  charts  to  use,  you  can  start the  actual  laying  down  of  tracks. Before  you  can  lay  down  the  actual  tracks,  you’ll  have  to  learn  about red  and  yellow  soundings,  turn  bearings,  highlighting  dangers,  and danger  bearings  and  angles. 12-7
