In the following table give the correct magnetic bearing of the distant object, and thence the deviation. CORRECT MAGNETIC BEARING: With the deviation as above, give the courses you would steer by the Standard Compass to make the following courses, correct magnetic. Correct magnetic courses, NE by N., West, Compass courses, Suppose you have steered the following courses by the Standard Compass, find the correct magnetic courses made, from the above deviation table. Compass courses, E S E., N 46° W., E by S. You have taken the following bearings of two distant objects by your Standard Compass as above; with the Ship's head at N E by E., find the bearings, correct magnetic.

If at sea on June 30th, 1885, A.M., and uncertain of my position, when the Chronometer showed 29a 23h 14485 Greenwich Mean Time, the observed Altitude of the Sun's L. L. was 62° 27′ 24′′, and again P.M. the same day, PAPER XI.—Continued. when the Chronometer showed 30d 2h 57" 125 Greenwich Mean Time, the observed Altitude of the Sun's L. L. was 47° 34' 0", the ship having made 24 miles on a true W by N N. course in the interval, height of eye 20 feet. Required the line of position when the first Altitude was taken; also the bearing of the Sun, and the position of the ship by Sumner's Method when the second Altitude was observed, the ship being supposed to be between the parallels of 48° 45′ N. and 49° 5' N. FOR MASTER, FIRST MATE AND ONLY MATE. Magnetic Chart. I. Using deviation card No. find the course to steer by compass from S to F, also the distance. 2.

Find the ship's position. 3. -With the ship's head as above, a [point] [lighthouse] A bore by compass S 49° 22' E., and after continuing on the same course 25 miles, it bore S 15° 19' W. Find the ship's position, and her distance from A, at the time of taking the second bearing. ADDITIONAL FOR MASTERS. 4. Find the course to steer by compass from S to F (see question 1.) to counteract the effect of a current, which set S E by E E., at the rate of 2 miles per hour, the ship making by log 12 miles per hour; also the distance the ship will then make good in 5 hours towards F. 5.-On November 11th, 1884, at 10h 5m P.M., being off Tenby, by reckoning took a cast of the lead. Required the correction to be applied to the depth obtained by the lead line before comparing it with the depth marked on the Chart. PAPER XII. (SECOND MATE as far as Longitude by Chronometer.)
