Find CURRENT

or the

SET AND DRIFT

You can recognize this type of problem by the form of the answers.

089°T 1.2knots

This is the line that you THINK the boat is following over the ground.

From this point on in the problem,

ALL POINTS PLOTTED ARE ON THE DR LINE

Find out where you THOUGHT you would have been at (in this case 0945) the time the FIX was taken.

Find out where you THOUGHT you would have been at (in this case 0945) the time the FIX was taken.

To do this use DSTreet D=S*T

S=BOAT SPEED

T=ELAPSED TIME 45minutes or 0.75 hr. in this example.

Due to boat speed alone, the boat would be somewhere on this CIRCLE having a radius of the D found.

Now we want to find the speed or DRIFT.

There are two ways to do this.

The first is by plotting.

The second uses DSTreet.

To use the PLOTTING METHOD we need to draw a second triangle.

To do this use DSTreet D=S*T

S=BOAT SPEED

T= ONE HOUR

This will tell us where we THOUGHT we would be in ONE HOUR.

REMEMBER that this is plotted on the DR LINE

To use the PLOTTING METHOD we need to draw a second triangle.

Place the parallel rule on the SET LINE found previously and walk this angle to the ONE HOUR DR position.

Draw a line connecting the DR line to the TRACK line.

To use the PLOTTING METHOD we need to draw a second triangle.

Place the parallel rule on the SET LINE found previously and walk this angle to the ONE HOUR DR position.

Measure the distance (D) along this line.
