									 ANNEX F PCT NAVIGATION OUTFIT SET-UP CHECKLIST
   It has been decided that wherever possible the Navigation Outfit of the PCT ORCA
   Class will be maintained electronically.
           Notable exceptions are digitally available publications that are in constant use on the
           bridge, e.g. List of Lights, RAMN, USCP7.
   Folders "01 to 11" in folder "Navigation Outfit" must not contain any files other than
   those described in this checklist.

      Select the folder "Navigation Outfit" and remove the "Read Only" property from it
       and all subfolders.
           Be very careful not to overwite
           "Navigation Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST".
           Be very careful not to overwite "Navigation Outfit\12 Inspections".
           Be very careful not to overwite "Navigation Outfit\13 Archive".

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\01 NavOutfit Muster"
    Obtain all required publications and charts as per the Navigation Outfit requirements
      outlined in: "Navigation Outfit\01 NavOutfit Muster\NavOutfit Requirements.doc".
           Order through Hydrographic Services Office (HSO): Building D109, (250)363-2035.
    Maintain a Muster of the Navigation Outfit that includes the edition date of the
      publications.
       Save a copy of the Muster in "Navigation Outfit\01 NavOutfit Muster" using the file
           "NavOutfit-yyMmmdd.doc" as the template, substituting the appropriate date for the
           muster.
               Note that the edition dates of paper charts are entered in the appropriate DND
               folio in "Navigation Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR -
               WEST\ Section A".
               Note that HSO will automatically send new editions of publications to OIC NTS.

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST"
      The Maritime Command Chart Registry (MCCR) will be specific to each PCT.
      Be very careful not to overwite this folder.

       Electronic Nautical Charts (ENC)
           Two of the publications that will be received from HSO will be the CDs containing the
           electronic charts, "Professional Series (PS) 01" and "PS02".
                   Only "PS01" is required, but if both CDs are received, then load both CDs.
            Load these charts onto the SHINNADS computers (RT MON and RT PLAN), and
               note in "Navigation Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR - ENC\
               SECTION A PS SERIES\PS SERIES CG.doc".
                   Obtain all the monthly updates to "PS01/02" from HSO.
            Apply all updates sequentially, and enter in "Navigation Outfit\
               02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR - ENC\ SECTION A
               PS SERIES\PS SERIES CG.doc".
                   DO NOT RUSH THROUGH THE PROCESS.
                   Errors at any stage might require that the entire update process be restarted,
                   beginning with a reloading of "PS01/02".
                   Be very careful to note that all corrections are applied.
                   Occasionally, a patch may be required to ensure correct up-dating.
                   Contact HSO with any concerns.

Version 1.01
           If the vessel holds other electronic charts, update the MCCR in
            "Navigation Outfit\ 02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR - ENC",
            "Sections B to F".
                 B: DND Series (Raster Charts), C: DNC (Digital Nautical Charts), D: BA
                 Series (British Admiralty), E: NOAA S57 (U.S. Dept. of Commerce S57
                 Charts), F: NOAA Raster (U.S. Dept. of Commerce Raster Charts)
           Delete NOAA charts that are not required by the current OIC.
                 If there is no OIC, then NOAA charts are not necessary. i.e. NOAA charts
                 are only to be kept for a current, or immediately upcoming deployment.
                 These charts are updated weekly, and can be downloaded at HSO on their
                 dedicated terminal.
                 SHINNADS computers have NO effective virus protection. These files
                 should then be scanned at a DND workstation before being loaded on the
                 SHINNADS computers (RT MON and RT PLAN).
                 DO NOT USE ANY DISC OR FILE THAT HAS NOT BEEN SCANNED FOR
                 VIRUSES AT A DND WORKSTATION.

          Hardcopy Publications
             PCTs must carry 8 HSO paper charts to supplement 8 raster charts found in
             "PS01".
                 They might carry more as required by an appropriate authority.
                 The requirements of a particular user group are not to be included in the
                 MCCR without the express order of an appropriate authority. This authority
                 does not reside in the OIC of a user group.
           All HSO charts must be entered in "Navigation
             Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR - WEST\Section A" in the
             appropriate DND Folio.
                          Note that the edition dates of paper charts are entered in the
                          appropriate DND folio in "Navigation Outfit\02 MCCR V2.0 COAST
                          GUARD WEST\MCCR - WEST\ Section A".
           This also requires that all applicable corrections be entered.
                          Corrections are found primarily in the Notices to Mariners, but all
                          publications, i.e. Folders 03-06, need to be checked for applicable
                          corrections.
                          Formatting: black text is applied corrections, red text is noted but
                          unapplied corrections, grey shading indicates that the chart is not
                          held.
                          HSO has correction tracings that can be used to apply corrections to
                          the Chart outfit as necessary.
                                   HSO is very accomodating and will provide a work space
                                   and pens as well.
                          Corrections are applied in fine purple ink, and noted in the bottom left
                          hand corner of the chart.
                                   A "dimpling pen" will also be useful to indicate the position of
                                   a correction found on the tracing sheet.
           If the vessel holds other charts, update the MCCR in "Navigation Outfit\
             02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\MCCR - WEST", "Sections B and C".
                 B: British Admiralty Folios, C: Classified Charts and Publications
           This also requires that all applicable corrections be entered.
                 CORRECTIONS FROM THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITY MUST BE
                 IDENTIFIED.
                 A starting point could be HSO.
                 Another could be: mce-scarto.mil.ca/newdin/eng/din/.
                 Formatting: black text is applied corrections, red text is noted but unapplied
                 corrections.


2/7
Version 1.01
           All publications from HSO must be entered in "Navigation Outfit\
            02 MCCR V2.0 COAST GUARD WEST\ MCCR - WEST\ Section D\
            Core Publication - West.doc"
           This also requires that all applicable corrections be entered.
                 All publications, i.e. Folders 03-09, need to be checked for applicable
                 corrections.
                 Formatting: black text is applied corrections, red text is noted but unapplied
                 corrections, grey shading indicates that the publication is not held.
                 Corrections to hardcopy publications must be neat and clear, and refer to the
                 source of the correction.
                 Print corrections, e.g. printer (non-ink jet) or label maker, are preferable to
                 hand-written corrections.
                   Deletions will be indicated by a single horizontal line.
                   Insertions will be indicated by a line with a single arrrowhead pointing to
                   the point of insertion.
                   Replacements will be indicated by a single horizontal line for the deletion
                   and a double-headed line with the arrowheads pointing at the deletion and
                   the substituted text.
                   N.B. Corrections to even a year-old publication can be significant,
                   especially heavily-used publications such as the Sailing Directions: British
                   Columbia Coast (South Portion). Allow a lot of time to make corrections.

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\03 CANHYDROPACs"
    Save the CANHYDROPACs from the website as a html file in "Navigation Outfit\
      03 CANHYDROPACs" with the file name reflecting the period covered by the
      CANHYDROPACs.
              esquimalt.mil.ca/hso/chp.htm
              Use the options: "CanHydroPac Messages" and "All CanHydroPac's", and
              "Run Report".
              Use the file name in the format "ddmmmyy-ddmmmyy.htm".
              A folder will be created in the "Navigation Outfit\ 03 CANHYDROPACs" folder.
    Delete the previous folder and html file.
              CANHYDROPACs are not noted in the MCCR.
              They must be made available and obvious to OICs. However, they do not need
              to be printed.

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\04 DND Navigation Notices"
    Save the DND Navigation (DNDNav) Notices from the website as pdf files in "Navigation
      Outfit\04 DND Navigation Notices".
               Mapping and Charting Establishment: Marine Information Centre (mce-
               scarto.mil.ca: 10.64.17.175/newdin/eng/mic/index.asp)
               DO NOT CHANGE THE FILE NAMES.
               File name format will be: "Dndxx_yyyy.pdf", where "xx" is the issue number,
               corresponding to the week of the year.
    The requirements of MARCORD 42-11 are that a 1 year backlog of DNDNav Notices be
      kept on hand.
               However, since the DNDNav Notices contain corrections to publications, notably
               the U.S. Coastal Pilots, it may be necessary to obtain the DNDNav Notices all
               the way back to your earliest-published publication.




3/7
Version 1.01
   Folder "Navigation Outfit\05 Notice to Mariners"
    Save the Monthly Notice to Mariners from the website as pdf files in "Navigation Outfit\05
      Notice to Mariners", separated by year, in an appropriately labelled folder, e.g. 2004.
              www.notmar.gc.ca/go.php?doc=eng/services/notmar/index
              Menu is found on the left-hand side, and both "Current Edition" and "Archives"
              will need to be checked.
              DO NOT CHANGE THE FILE NAMES.
              File name format will be: "wesmmeyy.pdf",
                       where "wes" is the West Coast, "mm" is the numeric month, "e" is
                       english, and "yy" is year.
                       The title of the txt file "Coast-Month-e-Year.txt" in each yearly folder
                       explains this format.
    The requirements of MARCORD 42-11 are that a 1 year backlog of Notice to Mariners be
      kept on hand.
              However, since the Notice to Mariners contain corrections to publications, it may
              be necessary to obtain the Notice to Mariners all the way back to your earliest-
              published publication.
              Note that the website contains listings of all corrections from Notice to Mariners
              that are to be applied to: Charts, Radio Aids to Marine Navigation, Sailing
              Directions, and List of Lights.
              Note that corrections promulgated by Notice to Mariners may be more up-to-date
              than the electronic opies of the charts, and these corrections will need to be
              indicated in the MCCR and applied in ECPINS.
              As well, the Annual Notices to Mariners publication can be obtained here in pdf
              format, but it will also likely be distributed in hard-copy by HSO. No significant
              harm can come from having both a digital and a hard-copy version of the Annual,
              since the Annual itself is not corrected.

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\06 Temporary and Preliminary Notices"
    Save the Temporary and Preliminary Notices (T&P) from the website as pdf files in
      "Navigation Outfit\06 Temporary and Preliminary Notices".

           Title: Notices To Mariners Summary Of Temporary and Preliminary Notices,
           accompanied by release date.
           DO NOT CHANGE THE FILE NAME.
           File name format will be: "t_p_yyyy_e.pdf", where "e" is english.
           Note that this is a summary, so only the most recent edition is required, and that the
           Monthly Notices to Mariners will need to be consulted for T&P subsequent to the
           Summary's publication.

   Folder "Navigation Outfit\07 List of Lights"
    Save the List of Lights, Buoys, and Fog Signals - Pacific Coast from the website in
      "Navigation Outfit\07 List of Lights".
           www.notmar.gc.ca/go.php?doc=eng/services/list/pacific_coast_e
           The publication is broken into separate sections as pdf files.

Version 1.01
      ONE MUST CHANGE THE FILE NAMES FOR CLARITY WHEN SAVING THE FILES.
                 File names must have the format: "pnnnn(m)e.pdf",
                          where "p" indicates Pacific Coast, "nnnn" is the light number
                          expressed as a four-digit number, and "(m)" is any decimal following
                          a light number.
                          e.g. "p26e.pdf" is renamed "p0026e.pdf", and "p2228e.pdf" is
                          renamed "p02228e.pdf".
                          Files "pfronte.pdf" and "pindexee.pdf" are exceptions to the naming
                          convention, but are essential elements of the whole publication.
                          The title of the txt file "coastLIGHTNUMBERenglish.txt" in each
                          yearly folder explains this format.
         Note that this digital publication is corrected up to the most recent monthly Notice to
         Mariners.
                 HSO will provide a hard-copy, which is NOT corrected past the publication
                 date.
                 This publication must be readily accessible on the bridge in corrected hard-
                 copy.
          THE UNCORRECTED VERSION SHOULD NOT BE ANYWHERE ON BOARD.
          A hard-copy of the corrected digital version should be printed and organized in a
            binder that is divided into sections corresponding to the pdf files.
          This binder should be readily identifiable as the List of Light Signals, which can
            be accomplished by printing the title page in colour to show the crest of the
            Canadian Coast Guard and inserting it in the front pocket of a binder with a clear
            pocket on the top cover.
                 Note that many of the sections of this publication have no bearing on the
                 coastal navigation that the PCT ORCAs will be involved in, e.g. the lakes.
                 Nonetheless, an initial preparation of the hard-copy of this document should
                 contain the document in its entirety to indicate to users that the version they
                 are using is a true replacement of the published vversion.
                 OIC NTS may approve a standard operating procedure for monthly
                 corrections that does not include updating the superfluous sections, but
                 without this express approval, even these sections should be updated.
          Update, save, and print the file "Correction Coverpage.doc" for inclusion in the
            binder before the body of the text, as an indication to the user that the publication
            is corrected.
