Standard Magnetic Compass

Denny Orewiler Dec 19, 2017 11:30AM EST

On a final exam question, one referenced a course of standard magnetic compass. To get true, I subtracted the variation only but did not consider deviation. Is that the correct way. I am a little confused with the wording of standard magnetic compass vs. per ship compass. I know the difference but want to be sure I address any questions correctly.

Magnetic compass vs. per ship compass (PSC) are exactly the same thing and should be treated as such. If you need any further clarification give our office a call M-F 9-5 EST and a staff instructor will be happy to help (609)303-0664
