MAN OVERBOARD MANEUVERS Anderson turn The Anderson turn is a maneuver used to bring a ship or boat back to a point it previously passed through, often for the purpose of recovering a man overboard, an emergency situation in almost all circumstances. The Anderson turn is most appropriate when the point to be reached remains clearly visible. For other situations, a Scharnow turn or a Williamson turn might be more appropriate. Both will require more time before returning to the point in question. 1. If the turn is in response to a man overboard, stop the engines. 2. Put the rudder over full. If in response to a man overboard, put the rudder toward the person ( e.g. , if the person fell over the starboard side, put the rudder over full to starboard). 3. When clear of the person, go all ahead full, still using full rudder. 4. After deviating from the original course by about 240 degrees (about 2/3 of a complete circle), back the engines 2/3 or full.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
