It is entirely possible that the version of my copy of Reeds, bought in a college book sale in 1984, is arranged differently from yours. Check the index at the back
Yes, Lambs and Pounders are good reference books..... good point on the Doxford, it's been nearly 40 years since I sailed on the Clan Macporridge. Highest hi-tech instrument on that ship was the voice powered phone to the bridge, all machinery was Juniormatic or Abdulmatic!
To stop a large ship quickly, a procedure was developed by a BP skipper, whose name slips my mind. So you have 300,000 tons traveling at 15 knots in a straight line. No problem, eh? Now you have to stop it as quickly as you can.
His procedure, which is very effective, is to slow the engine to HH, then SH, bringing the helm to hard over. The stern kicks out, which is why you need the power of momentum and HH to keep steerage way and force over the rudder, and the hull acts as a mobile dam to shove water out of the way. The ship stops very quickly by 90 degrees off course, then you go to SH to maintain steerage. If you haven't lost sufficient speed by 60 degrees off course, reverse the helm then drop to SH.
It's similar to the Williamson turn, but you slow the engine down, losing propulsion power. For the Williamson turn, you need power all the way through it.
Both manoevres need sea room, of course, you can't do it in Halifax Harbour, it's ever tighter in St Johns.
If you write in Newfoundland outports, Cornerbrook, Marystown, Louisport etc, ask about writing there and having it marked in Dartmouth, that has been established because of the shortage of Examiners.
