yes - i now understand that you are taking the piss

there is NO " 190 degrees to port " - there is as i stated earlier - " 170 degrees to starboard "

the cockwomble quoted in the OP - is the only person who has ever claimed that " 190 degrees to port " is a way of communicating a contact

try reading bowdich or any other authrorative source on seamanship // navigation

the claim is demonstrably false - thats why i got into this thread in the first place

now i am wondering why you are so desperate to cling to a lie

Another good one Karl... there is that built in secret oath(military cases) and ridicule that plagues this phenomenon.


Karl has long been one of ATS' best thread makers. A big part of the silence has to do with veterans wanting to keep their pensions.

"190 degrees to port."

"190 degrees, to port"

Can you not see the difference?

ok - you want to play the semantics game - fine - lets play :

" 190 degrees , to port "

Q1 - " 190 degrees" - measured from what datum ?

please bear in mind that the vessel has already alledgedly lost steering , electronics and compass

This case is a real true meat and potato's case! The ones the public rarely ever gets to hear about, and it fits the military pattern of silence and secrecy that by itself proves the seriousness at which things like this are attributed to by the military.

Centerline of the ship bearing 190, Works for me and would be the port side

Another good one Karl, some of my favorite cases are USO.
.


Cheers matey and after reading through many of the naval reports (bit of a shocker just how many exist) I really do think the marine aspect is an important part of the UFO subject- also interesting about the complete lack of declassified US Naval UFO documents and undisclosed O.N.I. UFO investigations.

Below is another freaky one from Chile - according to Feindt it's one of the catalogue's best TRUFO candidates.

That one quote jumped out at me too but on reflection I concluded that he actually meant it was at a bearing of 190 degrees from the direction of travel of the ship which would indeed place it to their port side astern.

It could quite easily have been a mistranscription of his actual words. Add a comma and it makes more sense: "190 degrees, to port."

Appreciate the input guys - spoke to a friend about this who's a bit of a salty sea dog and he reckoned the same thing - hopefully some of the other witnesses will come forward and submit their reports.

Quite a lot of information in it relevant to the thread discussion - hope you manage to watch it.

If the ship has lost its compass bearing then the only point of reference is the ship's orientation. 190 degrees from the direction the ship is pointing puts the object at 7 o'clock. Astern. To port.

Are you being deliberately obtuse?

I was stationed on the CGC Acushnet in 1976-77. I can tell everyone. That it is impossible to loose steering on that ship. Everything on that system is mechanical. There is a drive shaft from the bridge down to the engineroom. Then aft to after steering where it is converted into hydraulic, to move the rudders. The engine controls are also all mechanical. Now they may have lost generator power to the ship that would have effected anything electrical.

thankyou - i did wonder that - based on hull age - and design - but as i could find no machinery spec for her - i said nothing

PS - now you are here - did she have an emergency steering gear ? - i expect so - but again could not find a spec

Mikell just gave you the right answer. What the Hell is wrong with you? Degrees are counted clockwise so 190 from the bow is to port. Why are you just not getting this???

It's amazing how people who actually know there stuff, get no credit and those lacking in the brain cell department have dozens of stars after their posts.
