Latitude Hooks and Azimuth Rings: How to Build and Use 18 Traditional Navigational Tools

Latitude Hooks and Azimuth Rings: How to Build and Use 18 Traditional Navigational Tools

Author: Dennis Fisher Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/12/1994

Latitude Hooks and Azimuth Rings is for people who like to work with their hands and who appreciate traditional nautical craftsmanship. You don't have to be the master of any craft to undertake any of these projects--from a simple kamal or latitude hook to the more complex pelorus or octant--just a careful and enthusiastic worker.These 18 projects fall roughly into three categories: decorative, useful, and somewhere in between. Some, such as the astrolabe, are mainly for display. On the other hand, the sounding line is an important and practical tool for small-craft navigation, particularly in the absence of an electronic sounder. The cross-staff falls somewhere in between, equally at home in the den or the ditch kit.Each of the devices discussed here--with simple, proven building instructions complemented by clear illustrations--has at one time or another been used for the practical business of navigation, and each is worth reviving for its beauty, historic value, or sheer usefulness.Dennis Fisher has designed these projects with an emphasis on simplicity and reasonable cost. Everything can be scratch-built using easily obtainable materials and tools, and each is true to the spirit and function of the original instrument.

GMDSS for Navigators

GMDSS for Navigators

Author: Peter Smith, John Seaton Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/09/1994

The Global Maritime distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is becoming the all-embracing term for communication and data transfer between ship and shore, and ship and ship. It's a highly automated system of terrestrial satellite communications technology whose primary role is to maintain safety of life at sea. Within the next five years all vessels over 300 tonnes will be required to carry GMDSS equipment. The seafaring nations of the world have together established the rules and regulations for good working practices within the system, and every serving and future navigating officer will be required to hold the GMDSS General Operator's Certificate. GMDSS for Navigators brings together in one publication the knowledge required by anyone who wants to become a qualified and competent operator of GMDSS communications equipment. It should prove to be the accepted universal reference for GMDSS training.

Navigation Primer for Fishermen

Navigation Primer for Fishermen

Author: F.S. Howell Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/1989

This book, written by the former head of a navigation school, is intended as a primer to help all inshore and coastal fishermen gain a better understanding of the principles of navigation. This is still an essential skill in spite of the increased use of electronic aids in moern fishing boats. The text sets out the elementary requirments simply and clearly, aided by many illustrations, dealing not only with navigation, but also with chartwork, pilotage and ship stability. This new edition adds electronic navigation and has been revised to cover instruction on navigation in both hemispheres.
