Description: This is the scan copy of Navigation and Operations work book that I made while doing my cadetship.
Hei ! So i have passed my second mates couple of months back. I did it from UK. And my orals were quite easy and got over fast. The reason for that was , the surveyor was quite impressed with my Navigations and Operations work book. So i have decided to scan my workbook. This ,I hope, will help anybody who is preparing for second mates and need a work book.
My only request to juniors who are using this is that, they refrain from just copying and pasting the stuff. Please try to understand that the things in are for guidance only and try to work it yourself. Also understand that calculations and procedures are required till you retire from this field( or until they decide to allow computers to take over completely :) ).So please use it well.
Another thing I need to say is that, there may be some errors in this workbook.My understanding of shipboard operations has changed greatly since my first day on first ship and my last day on second ship. I started workbook roughly after two weeks after joining ship. So do let me know if you find some mistakes as that will help me also.
Lastly, I would like to thank all the good Masters,Mates.Officers and Crew who have helped me learning all the things that I know now. Nothing in this workbook is my invention. I have acquired all this from others. So spread the riches around
Good luck
Addendum :
In Calculations pdf please note that some pages do not have headers properly. I realised this mistake only after scanning. Hence I have scanned the pages which have missing headings/other information to a seperate files as Calculations additional ! Sorry about that
All that is written in Blue ink is my first ship and those written in black ink belongs to second ship !
I have noticed that some pages are not too bright. Thats probably because of the pen I used while writing the Workbook. Unfortunately there is no way to fix it !
