These midterm answers are slightly different.
Note that your exam was also slightly different but the answers are still applicable.

On the assignments for class you will note reference to an Advanced HandOut [AdvHO]. Most of that has been incorporated into the present 214 HO but the color version that I use in class is online. At the following website, look for the Advanced Syllabus under ‘course downloads’ or ‘advanced class’. There are other syllabi in color as well.

Look over these correct exam answers before class tomorrow night. We will go over them in class. There were several with no knots done. Did you give up or forget to mark them down?

Info for West Marine discounts
I have emailed to you both the class roster showing your name as part of the class and also an instruction sheet for presenting to the cashier that does not understand how this program works.
Good luck!

Be sure to read over the provisioning sections of the course syllabus before the next class. There is also an outline here. We will be going over this on Monday.

The best way to install waypoints in your GPS
is to google search:
garmin gps download waypoints
and use the youtube, download and appropriate instructions of your choice [whatever works].

I have used 'basecamp' which is garmin, and Easy gps which is private. There are many others; take a look.

The super agency NOAA that we all use constantly in our everyday maritime lives, is recruiting Marine Science Techs. Lt.Cdr. Fischel, who also races his J 24 from Dana Point harbor, would love to talk with students about careers with NOAA, and also entry-level jobs that they offer that may lead to other exciting opportunities later.

As we know, NOAA is responsible for vast and diverse areas such as fisheries, weather, hydrography and bathymetry as well as marine protection and conservation, and this just begins to cover what they do. A lot of their effort is seagoing and it has become increasingly difficult to recruit talent in seagoing services. This is where you guys become so important to them. You are already obviously interested in going to sea, developing your skills in seamanship, and for many of you, including the other marine sciences in your backgrounds as well. For one thing, understanding how the oceans work makes you a better sailor. And a good salary for doing what you love to do should be interesting too.

Specifically, what Lt.Cdr. Fischel said they are looking for are Marine Science Techs who understand the worlds of both science and seamanship, and can work in a coordinating role between the scientists and ship's crew. And it pays well. And there are many other jobs available too.

Lt.Cdr. Peter Fischel
