Clarity in this section overrides the need for brevity.
Items of Interest
Describe any unusual navigation practices, procedures, or
problems, and chart evaluations. Record any port information
that may be useful to other icebreakers during similar
developments and is not otherwise routinely available. Refer
to Pub. 606, Guide to Marine Observing and Reporting
for subject and content guidance. If a report is being
submitted to Defense Mapping Agency, attaching a copy of
the DMA report as an appendix to the cruise report is an
acceptable alternative to narrative in this section.
