  2 Cha  t r 3 PASSAGE PLANNING Introduction Planning ma y be considered in n vo stages: Ocean and open waters. Coastal and estuarial water s. Though, at times, these t:\ vo stages will merge and overlap. C   rts Co ll ect together all the charts for the intended voyage, putting them into the correct order. Charts not absol ut ely necessary for the voyage but which are a dj ace nt to the area to be traversed should be included, as should very large scale charts, e.g. port plans on the coastal part of the voyage. Although it may n ot be necessary to actually use such charts, they ma y include information that will prove of use during the voyage. Ensure that all charts and pubUca li ons have been cotTected to the latest Notice to Mariners available and that any authentic Nav warnings etc. received fr om any source are also included (see Annex II ). Similar corrections may also ha ve to be made during the voyage a ft er the plan h as been completed and the plan having LOb e subsequently modified. No Go Ar eas Coastal and estuarial charts should be ex amined, and a ll areas where the ship C NNOT go must be care full y sh own by highlighting or cross hatchin g, care being taken to not obliterate information such as a navigation mark or a conspicuous o bj ecl. Areas so marked are to be considered as no- go areas. In waters where the tidal range may not be very large, no-go areas will include a ll c hart ed depths of less than the ship's draug ht plus a safety margi n. Such areas w ill vary according to the ship's draught so w ll not necessarily be the sa me for both inward and out:\.vard passages. In general the line determining no-go w ill be not less than draught 10 , though this will n ee d to be mod ified according to th e pr eva iling circumstances. Draught 10 % may we ll prove adequate in areas where e sea is smooth but will require a c on siderably high er fi gure i the sh ip is li able to pitch, ro ll or squa t. In confmed water s, where the tidal heig ht ma y have a large influe nc e, such no -go areas will vary according to the time of pa ssage. Initially a ll areas and dangers shov.ring ch ar ted depths of less than th e draught pl us the sa fety m arg in should be considered no-go, though such no go areas may be subsequ en tl y . am ended wh en the actual time of passage is known. Such areas will need to be carefully marked showing th e times and stale of tide at which they are safe. Figure 1 shows no go areas f or a s hip on a draught of 9· 1 metres, approximating to the 10 metre co ntour , no allowance be in g made for tidal heig ht 16 THE NAUTICAL INSTITUTE    7 ' ' ..
