    Re: Navy Navigation Regulation Manual

    Byron: Jeremy thanks for the input. I know some of the local merchant
    and realize the shortage of the bridge, where the Navy has many to use
    on a transit. The Navy because of their task (fighting wars) needs the extra
    personnel, so needs to use them. Radar has a team in CIC that duplicates and feeds
    the bridge in navigation. On a large ship the bridge team has a plotter, port and starboard
    bearing taker, bearing recorder, working on the chart fixes. On the Intrepid I also had a man in the chart house radar repeater using “Franklin continuous Radar plot.”(They teach this a Marine safety in
    Middletown RI. It is very useful for undermanned ship,) Among the OOD, Navigator, and CO.
    pilot. But in battle that would be reduced to only a few. I am sure that most ship traffic
    tries to stay away from war ships in narrow channels, so we may not have the trouble you may have.
    The Russians in the past in deep water would try to cut us off, using the rules of the road.
