FOG AND ITS DEADLY CARESS
at or near the bow. You can see things
sooner, and there is less hindrance from
your engine noise. With sufficient crew,
a lookout on the stern is also helpful,
watching for overtaking vessels and acting as a double check on the bow lookout.
Be sensitive to smells. We’ve smelled
land, rocks, other boats (from their
exhaust or moldy hulls), commercial fishing boats, buoys, and even tidal changes.
If there are enough crew, assign a person
to help the helmsperson. Steering to
a radar screen, chartplotter, computer
screen, or compass when you can’t see
is difficult unless you’re experienced.
Practice in good weather to get the feel
for it when you’re socked in. This will
help to prepare you for the emotional jolt
you’ll experience when you’re behind the
wheel in the soup.
In good weather and open water,
with at least one other competent person
aboard to keep watch for other boats and
dangers, force yourself to steer toward
and away from a
radar image without letting yourself
look at anything but
the radar. Do the
same for a target on
a chartplotter or the
overlay. If your target is a far distance
off, this may not be
a problem, but if
it’s at close range,
it may be very difficult. If the target is moving, or if there
are other targets around, it’s even more
challenging. Steering blind can add an
element of panic.
Radars and chartplotters don’t have an
instant real-time acquisition and refresh
rate. It isn’t going to be as close to real
time as seeing that target with your eyes.
Complicating the situation, you’ll probably be moving much slower than usual,
so your boat will respond more sluggishly.
As you try to compensate for a new image
on the screen, which has suddenly jumped
off to the side, your boat isn’t going to
react like you expect when you turn the
waters. Go to
