What are the 3 types of replenishments at sea?
UNREP (Underway), VERTREP (Vertical), CONREP (Connected)
Discuss Underway Replenishment
broad term applied to all methods of transferring fuel, munitions, supplies, and personnel from one vessel to another while underway.
Discuss Vertical Replenishment
carried out by helicopters; supplies, ammunition and personnel
Discuss Connected Replenishment
two or more ships steam side by side, and the hoses, lines and wire ropes used to transfer fuel, ammunition, supplies and personnel “CONNECT” the ships
What is the maintained speed during an UNREP?
Discuss the Control Ship
Also known as "The Guide"
Discuss the Flag Hoist Signals >>>>> delivery/recieving
Romeo at dip (3/4 of the way up)
Receiving ship: I am ready to come alongside
Romeo close up (hauled all the way up)
I am commencing approach
Romeo hauled down
When messenger is in hand.
Prep at dip
I expect to disengage in 15 minutes
Prep close up
Replenishing completed; disengaging final station
Prep hauled down
All lines are clear
Bravo at dip
Have temporarily stopped supplying
Bravo close up
Fuel, explosives, or inflammable materials are being transferred.
Bravo hauled down
Delivery is complete.
What is the difference between emergency and standard breakaway?
CVN class ships do an accelerated standard breakaway which is maximum speed but small rudder orders, ½ degree at a time
What is the purpose of Special Sea and Anchor detail?
mooring or getting underway; restricted waters
What is the purpose of Low Visibility detail?
during fog or reduced visibility to detect approaching ships or craft; when visibility in any direction is reduced to 3 miles or less.
What is the purpose of Flight quarters?
fixed wing and rotary missions.
Flag Foxtrot: fixed wing operations
Flag Hotel: helo operations
Tell me about Restricted maneuvering doctrine.
must be set in restricted waters.
ship enters or leaves a port, UNREPs, or anchors.
During flight ops, narrow passageways, Man Overboard, General Quarters, or at the CO’s request.
amber deck or green deck during flight ops
Who gives the order to "Abandon Ship"?
How many phases are in "Abandon Ship"?
Discuss the three phases of "Abandon Ship"
Phases 1: Prepare all hands abandon ship
Phase 2: all hands abandon ship, except securing/salvage.
Phase 3: secure salvage, and abandon ship.
Words to be passed during "Abandon Ship"
Nearest land in degrees magnetic
If land is hostile/friendly
Distance in Nautical Miles
method of destruction
nearest shipping lane
Sea state and temperature
life expectancy in water.
What are the actions of the crew during "Abandon Ship"?
deep or shallow water destruction:
- in water < 100 fathoms, shred/burn.
- in water > 100 fathoms, document sinking bags/lock safe & let it go down.

State 3 common types of "man-overboard" recovery.
Airborne, Small boat, and Shipboard
What are two emergency conditions?
Collision and Aground
Advance = start of turn
Transfer = end of turn
Define True bearing
Define Relative bearing
a position that is relative to the ship's position.
Define DIW (Dead in the Water)
simply drifting with no propulsion
Describe the Navigation Lights.
5 Navigation Lights:
Port = Red
Starboard = Green
Forward Mast = White
Aft Mast = White
Stern Light* = White (Blue for night flight ops)
Describe lights for "restricted in ability to maneuver" (nav lights)
