USE O1F RADAR IS DISCUSSED AT
GREAT LAKES VESSEL
OFFICERS MEETING
Radar and radarbeacons and their ap-
plication to vessel operation on the
Great Lakes, was the subject of an ad-
dress delivered by Lt. Comdr. Guy L.
Ottinger, USCG, at the annual forum
of the Great Lakes ILicensed Officers As-
sociation, hzeld at Cleveland, Ohio, on
January 8*
Lieutenant Commander Ottinger's re-
marks referred particularly to observa-
tions made on a recent voyage of the
8. S. Johne T. Hutchtinson when radar
was extenstrely used, and to the experi-
ences of several Great Lakes navigators
with radar equipment in use during the
season of navigation just closed.
One of the problems discussed was
the practicability of installing "corner
reflectors" on buoys at specially selected
locations, such appurtenances serving to
reflect radar transmissions in a veiry sat-
isfactory manner. Considered in con-
nection with this was the degree of cer-
tainty with which ordinary types of
buoys could be picked up by radar at use--
ful ranges.
Lieutenant Commander Ottinger de-
scribed the "LRamark" and the "re-
spondler beacon," and the various modi-
fications of standard radar equipment
which would be necessary if such sig-
nals were to be utilized. He also
pointed out that the development of
these special supplemlenltary types of
radar navigational equipment would
come along only slowly and as standard
radar was adopted for commercial ma-
rine navigation.


Union of South Africa were represented
by~ observer delegations. Remington
K~ellogg, chairman of the delegation of
the United States of America, was
elected permanent chairman of the Con-
ference and Ira N. Gabrielson, member
of the delegation of the United States
of America was elected vice chairman.
T'he ~final session wias held on December
2, 1946. As a result of the deliberations
of the Conference, the following instru-
ments were formulated and opened for
signature on December 2, 1946, to re-
main open for signature for 14 days
thereafter :
1. International Convenztion for the
Regulation, of W~haling.
2. Protocol for the Regulation of
Whaling.
The Protocol contains the regulations
applicable to the whaling season 1947--48
and includes all the provisions of the
Protocol for the Regulation of Whaling
signed in London on November 26, 1946,
to apply as if in the said Protocol the
wcords "season 1947-48" were substituted
for the words "1 May 1947, to 31 October
1947." This Protocol will come into
force when notifications of acceptance
thereof shall have been given to the
Government of the United States of
America by all the Governments parties
to the Protocol of November 26, 1946.
The Convention, which includes a
Schedule, provides for a long-term agree-
ment, to become effective July 1, 1948.
The Convention shall, when instruments
of ratification have been deposited by at
least six Signatory governments, which
shall include the Governments of the
Netherlands, Norway, the Union of So-
viet S'ocialist Republics, the United
Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland, and the United States of Amer-
ica, enter into force with respect to
those governments and shall enter into
force with respect to each. government
which subsequently ratifies or adheres
on the date of deposit of its instrument
of ratification or the receipt of its no-
tification of adherence.
The Convention provides for the estab-
lishment of an International Whaling
Commission to be composed of one mem-
ber ~from each, contracting government.
This commission shall elect from its own
members a chairman and vice chairman
and shall determine its own rules of
procedure. Recognizing that special-
ized agencies related to thfe United Na-
tions w~ill be concerned with the con-
serv-ation and development of whale
fisheries and the products arising there-
from and desiring to avoid duplication

forbids the takline- of grayg whales or
r~ighlt whales and the kiilling of callves or
f.ma~rl whales accompanied by calves,
The schledule forbids the killing of any
blue. fin, se~i, humphackr, or sperm whales
below~ the following respective lengths:

the mlaxim~um catch taken during any
whaling season should not exceed 16,000
blue-whale units and that blue-whale
units shall bue calculated on the basis
tha~t one blue whale equals (1) two fin
whales or (2) two and a half hlumpback
whal:les or (3) six sei whales.
MOORING BUOYS NOT CLASSED
AS AIDS TO NAVTIGATION
'11( ly- quetion~ of the Coast Guard's
aiuthority to grant or deny requests to
establish moo~rl'ing buoys is one which
frequently arises, because of the similar-
ity" of these objects to the buoys which
the service maintains as aids to marine
navigation. The following opljlinIo in
this matter has been prepared by the
16211 division at Coast Guard Headqluar-
ters.
A muoorine buoy is a device to which a
vessel may be secured in lieu of the
usual custom of casting anchor. It
serves the pn evlce of an individual
shop or ,the ship of an individual
owner, rather than being available to
or serving the public generally. It fol-


lows, therefore, that a mooring buoy
is not an "aid to navigation,"' the pri-
mary purpose of the latter being a sea-
manrk or dlevice to aid marine naviga-
tio.n by pointing out or wa;~rning~ of
dangers or obstr~Iuct1ionis, or indicating
safe or good water for nav~ligatfing a ship.
Accordlingly, it does not fall within, the
jurisdiction of the Coast Guard to au-
thorize the establishment of mnooring
buoys, or to th-tcrmiinc e their locations,
thought from its general cclquixoncc~ of
thle ma~ritimie field it may of ten serve to
advanitage~. in an advisory capacity on
these questions. The first question con-
cer'ning the ctab Ilishmour'll of aI mourll(in=
buoy if within the navigable walters of
the United States is whether it will
constitute an obstruction or tlanl~lr to
untenton.T'his is a matter under the!
cognizance of the Chief of Eng~ineers,'~
Warr D~epartment (3.3 UJ. S. C'. 403 i. andi
any person contemplating the Ilacine~ of
a mooring buoyr should obtain the ap-
proval of that agency. It is the practice!
of the United States Enginee-~r\ hen
authorizing works in navigabh:t wmer1s
of thle United States rnineers.c~~.~ whlen
maintenance of such lights or aids to>
navigation as may be prescribed by; the-
Coast Guard, and in. the case of a mtoor-
ine~ buoy this would cover pr~escribiner l
the kind, coloring, etc., of the buoy-, in1
prescribing which care would be ta~ken,.
as is understood to be done, to see thtln
such buoy would not be confused with
regular aids to navigation mnaintalinedl
by the Coast Guard. TChis is the extent
of the Coast Guard's aruthority with re-
spect to mooring buoys, not because a
marinelilL buoy is an aid to navigation
but for the protection of its own, system
of aidfs to navigation. (Memo for Chief,
Intelligence and~ Lawi Enforcement Divi-
sion, iNovemlber 12, HI-inl. )
ADMINISTRATIVE PIROCEDT.RE
ACT AFFECTS CERTAIN NO-
TICES TO MARINERS
The announcements of chonews~l' inl
anchorage areas, and establishment,
modification, or discontinuance of re-
str~icted areas, which were formerly
made to the maritime public chiefly
through Notices to Mariners, are now
being handled in a different manner1~.:, as
a result of the passage of the Admlinis-
trative Procedure Act (Public Law 404,
75th Colng., 2dc sess.) This act requires
that regulations of this type, afflc~tinrg
the general public, may be promulgated
only after public hearings and the pub-
lication of the regulation or alteration
of a Iregul~laionl in the Fiedleral Register.

IREAPR AIVIIRAPL JOHNSON DE-
SCRIBES TECHNICAL; ASPECTS
OF ICE-B3REAKI[NG CUTTERS
"'Develop~ment of Iceo-Dl~l~roing Vessels
forl the United Staltes Coast Guard" is
the title of an~ aIddre~ss delivered by Rear
Admiral Halrvey F`. Johnson, USCG (re-
tiredc), at the annual no oiting of tte
Society of Naval Architects and Marine
Engiinll1c inl Novemberltl of last year, and
which- hats been p~ublishedl by the Society,
with numerous illustra~tions. In this
technical paper, Rear Admliral Johnson
Preiewfed the mlanner in which the Coast
Gualrd bcamnne involvedl in ice breakiing,
bothl as a peacetime and wartime ne-
'tivity. He analyzes the hull structure
andlt power plants of various Coast Guard
ice-breaking vessels, and makes scien-
titu- comnparisons; between these and ice-
break~lille vessels built in other countries.
The following excerpts are of general
interest :
The first Coast Guard negl-uilrld ves-
sel especially stronothenedilP~ for work in
ice was the reriowned Bear, a wooden
vessel built in Scotland in 1878 for sub-
aIrctic ice workr. The Bear wuas replaced
by the Northland in 13'27, and both ves-
sels rendered invaluable duty during the
rlec~ent war. Other cutters incorporat-
ing ice operating features were the
Ossipee, built in 1914, the Kichkapoo, al-
tered in 1926, and the six vessels of the
Escana~ba class built during the period
from 1931 to 1935.
The Raritan anld Naugatucke were the
first coast Guard vessels designed pri-
,n11larily with ice-breaking characteris-
tics. They aire singlc-serew, Diesel-elec-
tric harbor cutt~r~s of 110 feet lonath
overall, 10%~ feet draft, 328 tons dis-
pinlcoment, and 1,(000 shaft horsepower.
T`-l was mnade of experimental formulas
to ciolrrelate hull form, htull st reng I:hI and
h~orstepower.~ Thesec- first vessels were
completed in April 3113!), and have p~rayed ~l
very~i succesRsful in service by breaking
sheet- ice 20 inches thickr without resort-
IIIg to chalirlin and ramming. The t
service obtainled from these vessels was


:D BULLETIN


gratifying, as it i ndien;ted that the basic
theories upon which the design w~as de-
veloped were sound. During the recent
war these vessels worked under very
severe ice conditions without suffering
hulld;nlnage. Allsubsequenitharborcut-
ter~s built have been modeled to this
same design, with but minor changes to
lines, hull details, and machinery.
The next ice-breaking vessel to be
designed by- the Coast Guard was the
Cacctus, a single-screw D~iesel-electric
buoy tender of 180I feet length over-all, 12
feet maximum draft, 935 tons displace-
mnent, and 1,000 sha:ft horsepower. This
cutter had approximatelyr the same bull
form and general structural ar ra nuge -
mlent as that incorporated so success-
fully in the harbor cutters.
In 11I1-10 naval operations in the vicin-
ity of Greenland developed the need for
an ice-breakier to cope with the ice con-
ditions existing offshore a~nd in the
fjords. Based on the general duty re-
quirementss known at that time, the cut-
ter Storis, which. is somewhat larger
tha\n the Cactucs class but of thle same
.geneirall type, was built. The general
diillw ninn over-all, 230 feet; maximum draft, 15
feet; dlisplacemnent, 1.715 tons; shaft
horsepower, 1,800; main propulsion,
Diesel-electric and single screw.
T'he wcar emergency which developed
late in 19410 indicated the need for the
construction of powerful ice-breakers
as soon as possible. Flrom a study of
the ice conditions on the coasts of Green-
land it was determined that two types
might be required--one type with a bow
propeller for work in, west coast of
Greenland fjords, where ice was re-
por~tedi to be quite solid and of unusual
but uniform thickness during certain
seasons of the year, and another type,
with no screw forward, for operation inl
thle heavy storms along the east coast.
H-owever, it was believed possible to use
identical propulsive arrangements for
both areas by substituting~ a shaft tube
cap for the bow wheel and shaft when
working on the east coast.
The outstandingly successful Swedish
ice-breaker Yme~r offered the closest ap-
proximnation to the problems in hand, in
that considerable power was installed in
a ship, ofr In~ti\ly? short Tene~th, and it
welved as a prototype for the develop-
ment of thet North nr-inrd-clas; vessels.
The dimensions andi cthalrcteristics de-
termined upon were as follows: Length,
..'I'; feet; bea~m, 63 feet 6 inches; dra;ft,
25 feet 9 inchesci. at aL distancemenlll'lt of
5,040 tonel. with 10,000 shaft hors~~tlnepowe

client buoryancy to support its weight and
a part of the weiehlt of the towboat bow.
TheII maximumr beam of an ice plow is
aboutllj one andl one-half times the besam
of the towboat or sufficient to clear a
channel wider tha~n the convoyed vessels.
The shape of the ice plow coupled with
the power in the( towboat is responsible
for the excellent results obtalined wRith
BllowFs inl Wel~lling~ the waterway from
Lakie MIil.higanl to free water on. the
Mlississippi open for movement of Inaval
resstels durlling the winters of 1!-12-19144.
The wratertightness and weight econ1-
onlly obtalined by the use of welded type
of construction has been so pronounced
that such construction, was na.=ptet(d inl
thle Rar~itan class cutters built in 19393.
The outstanding performance of that
cllass led dirtct~ly to the use of welding
for subsequent ice-breakers. Med~lium
steel was utilized for all ice-breaklers
excelpt the N~orth wrindr class, on wh]ich
high tensile steel was used for the shell
pin;ting,. primarily to take nclavanagel' of
the high yield strengthi of this material.
Nafvy eutnn specifications for
wre ldji n have been followed on all wRorki.
Thle welded bulls have performed ex-
ceedingly well in service. Little or no
hull daamage has been sustained from the
rigorous service to which the vessels
were subjectedl as compared with the
,difficulties encountered with. riveted
hulls.
Diesel-electric propulsion has bee~n
chosen for all ice-breakiing cutters. Th~le
largest of these plants are installed in
the N~orthw~inzd class and in the Ma~ckii-
nato. The method of controlling the
engIines. is common to all Coast Guardl
ice-breazkers. For the purposes of this
len perI, a description is given~ of only
these largest plants.
The power plant of the No,le won4,l
class and of the M8~ackcinawl consists of
six 2,000-horsepowoer Diesel engines, each
driving a dlireet-conne~cted direct-current
generator, developing 900 volts at 810
revolutions per minute, which in turn
drive three motors, one forward and two
aft. The machinery is installed in six
com~partments; namely, three generTiter~ll
rooms, two after-motor rooms and one
forward motor room. Each .generator
room contains two malin. generators ; thie
forward and after rooms in addition
have installed twvo auxiliary Diesel-
driven cenclrat ors developing 200kIilovolt
amperes of 440b-volt 60-cycle current.
The midship generator room contains
the evaporator and heeling-tr~inaning
pump control station.
The main propulsion control is so ar-
ranged that all the power may be put on


Upon completion these vessels wcent
into service with telling results around
Greenlanzd and in Russian waters. They
were instrumental in d1st ryinl Ger-
mazn weather stations on, the east coast
of Greenland; thtey towed disabled ves-
sels out of the ice and opened nav~iga~tion
for the.sulplyll~ ships to the Siber~ianl por~~ts
in the Sea of Okhotskr and the Arctic.
Olivrsc1' attached to these ice-breakers
while opcera:lingi in these northern areas
report that the vessels when n~inlg the
bow propelllerlr~ broke solid sea ice up to
5 feet in, thickness at about.4.8 knots.
WSvithout the bowc propeller in use they
can open channels th rough 10-foot
broken polar ice, frozen together, at a
speed of: Ilpproxinuttetl'~? 1 knot, by back. ;
ing9 and mannirin.
A study of ice conditions on the Great
Lakes determined that the dlesiln for
this area should be an ice-breakei with
a bowV prnpellerICI similar to that of the
No7~7 rthriod but with special empohasis on
draft and beam. The? dep~th of channels
of thr major harbors, dethryt of water
over lock: sills, and drydockr facilities,
were important factors in considering
the draft. As channel widths preclude
ready manonverabi-E lityilj the beam was
Itrealilved to be sufficient to open a pas-
sage g~rou lte: r than the widest en; 16 gn ves-
sel on the Great Lakres. The dimensions
and characteristics of the Great L~akes
ice-breakler Malck~izawo, built for this
service, are: Length over-all, 290 feet;
bealm Ina~lled,~l 74 feeCt 4 inches; draft, 1I
fe3et, at a displacement of about 5i,000
tons, wsith 101,000 horsepower dr:i\ing
three propellers. Upon compIrlelt il-n. this
vessel went into service on the Great
Lakes nl~wisti n g winter delivery of naval
vessels and priority materials. This
cutter has operatedl successfully under
the extreme ice conditions found to dlate
on th~e Great Lakces, such as windlrows,
sll-st ice, and drift ice.
The winter activity of naval vessels
on the Great Lakes and the necessity for
sh~ipm~ent of priority materials required
tlla t. the waterways from the Great
Lakes to ice-free wap~ter on the Missis-
s~ippi be kept open for navigation. The
towboat companies on the rivers have
had some success in breaking thin ice by
pushing a Ilanded~ barge ahead of a tow-
boat. The Coast Guard used this gen-
eral idea in developing ice plows for
attachment to the bow-s of Coast Guard
river cutters and leased river towboats.
Th~e general principle of the ice plow was
dlevelopedr in the Netherlands for tugs
and river towboats. An ice plow is a

toon, of robust conrstenetion,. with suffi-

through propul.sionz motors directly con-
nected to the shafts. The generators
are connected for parallel operation to
obtain desirable. power combinations as
minimum size of main propulsion cable
will be obtained with the 900-volt system
usedl. Whenr~ the power is divided be-
twreen the two after shafts for full

sets are connected in parallel and each
shaft produces 5,00013 horsepower when
