Essential Kit (Part III)

Of course without a pair of Binoculars any ship feels under equipped. The pair we carry are rather good and have a compass and light contained within them. Thus they can be used not only for watchkeeping but also for taking visual fixes to plot our position. Obviously in a big sea with flying spray they are of fairly limited use, however rare is the occasion that I have been on a shout and not used them at some point.
