While every line officer in the service is cognizant of most of the details, it is because they are so nearly infinite in number as to be easily forgotten that an attempt to compile them was begun.The regulations, as far as they concern the officer of the deck, are quoted in full- many of the notes were found scattered through various professional publications- and the balance consists of those small practical facts, hints and suggestions, not given elsewhere, which must generally be learned by actual experience on deck.With the generous permission of Lieutenant R.

A. R. Plunkett, Royal Navy, and Captain Jas. A. Moss, U. S. Army, I have taken a few notes from their respective books. And I am indebted to several officers of the U. S. Navy for many of the notes and for reading and correcting my manuscript.Preface to 1913 Edition.The present edition having become exhausted, it was deemed advisable to revise the manual in accordance with the new Navy Regulations and Naval Instructions of 1913.

The extracts from the regulations have been renumbered accordingly and corrections made as found necessary. The numbers refer to the articles and paragraphs thereof, and the letters R and I to Navy Regulations and Naval Instructions, respectively.

The original text has not been altered except where errors due to recent changes in the regulations were found.It is hoped that in the revised form the manual will prove of greater use to young watch officers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
