Well, you know the drill. Pencils at attention, breakout your god-given sound powered telephones, let’s clean-up a few Irish Pennants, batten-down the lip locker, and broadside this test.
1. Rudder angles are used by the conning officer when piloting the ship because:
a. The vessel’s turning diameter and time it takes to complete a turn is related to how much rudder angle is used.
b. Helmsman must always be told what to do. Only one person can be in charge.
c. Both a and b are correct.
d. Rudder angle only affects the amount of time it takes to complete a turn.

4. STEADY ON _____ states the course on which the ship’s head is to be steered: True or False
5. STEER ____ is the order usually given for only a minor change heading of the ship: True or False
