WATCH AS A COMPASS
Point the hour hand of the watch to the sun, and south is exactly half-way between the hour hand and rue XII on the watch; e.g., assuming it is 9 o'clock, point the hour hand (indicating nine) to the sun, and the point half-way between X and XI is due south; or assume that it is 4 o'clock, point the hour hand to the sun and the figures II indicate south.

DISPLACEMENT tonnage is the total weight of water displaced by a ship when loaded to its utmost capacity.
