    Resetting clocks on big ships
    From: Paul Hirose
    Date: 2000 Jul 20, 12:49 AM

    On large ships where formal watches are stood, how do they handle the
    resetting of the clocks when a time zone boundary is crossed? If
    you're on watch, and the clocks are set back an hour, do you just have
    to grit your teeth and work the extra hour? Or does the skipper adjust
    the times of the next few changes of watch so the hit is spread out?
    
    When Navy ships are cruising together, does the flagship command the
    time zone change for all ships?
