Transit Planning Publications, Continued - 14221_93
Transit Planning Publications Introduction Transit planning can best be described as the process of gathering and compiling  information  to  ensure  a  safe  and  efficient  voyage.  There  are many  publications  that  the  Quartermaster  uses  for  transit  planning. The publications  listed  in  this  section  must  be  studied  thoroughly.  You  should make  every  attempt  to  establish  an  in-depth  working  knowledge  of  all publications that are available to the QM. Coast Pilots Charts  are  limited  in  what  can  be  shown  by  symbols  and  abbreviations regarding  channels,  hazards,  winds  and  currents,  restricted  areas,  port facilities,  pilotage  service,  and  many  other  types  of  information  needed  by a  navigator  for  safe  and  efficient  navigation.  These  deficiencies  are remedied  by  the  Coast Pilots  published  by  NOS  and  the  Sailing Directions  published  by  DMAHTC. U.S. Coast Pilots are published in nine numbered volumes to cover the waters  of  the  United  States  and  its  possessions.  They  are  of  great  value  to a navigator when used with charts of an area both during the planning stage  of  a  voyage  and  in  the  actual  transit  of  the  area.  The  contents  of Coast Pilots  have been stored in a computerized data bank, and volumes are reprinted annually with all intervening changes included (except CP8 and  CP9,  which  are  revised  every  2  years).  Interim  changes  are  published in  Notices to Mariners and  Local Notices to Mariners. Fleet  Guides The  Defense  Mapping  Agency  Hydrographic/Topographic  Center publishes,  for  U.S.  Navy  use  only,  Fleet  Guides.  These  are  Pub.  No  940, Atlantic  Area,  and  Pub.  No  941,  Pacific  Area.  These  guides  contain  a number of chapters, each of which covers a port of major interest to naval vessels.  They  are  prepared  to  provide  important  command,  navigational, repair,  and  logistic  information.  This  information  is  much  like  that contained in  Coast Pilots  and  Sailing Directions,  but it is oriented toward naval interests and requirements; they are not needed by, nor are they available to, non-naval vessels. The information in  Fleet Guides  is corrected and updated through the publication of changes and/or new editions when required; interim corrections are published in  Notices to Mariners  if the urgency so warrants. 3-4
