PROBLEMS OF MARINE NAVIGATION

Lieutenant Charles W. Handley, U.S.M.S.

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The problems of Marine Navigation go far beyond the actual working of navigation problems and I would like to present the story of the Deck Officer in the Merchant Marine and his duties as they are carried out on board a merchant ship. The Merchant Marine is the term applied to all ships of a nation that are owned or operated by private industry and manned by civilian personnel. The main objective of the Merchant Marine is to look forward to the safe and economical carriage of passengers and cargo to their port of destination. This requires a different point of view from that of the Navy where every man is trained to the end that there will be success in battle.
