Part of the crew, part of the ship.

The Gist
At the end of my junior year I had to propose a senior design project to a panel of professors. I had no idea what I wanted to do, so the best I could come up with was looking at clean vs. cluttered (yet successful) design. Of course, that wasn't what they were looking for. They looked at a list of my interests and saw that I had listed "shipwrecks." They pointed out that it fit perfectly into the theme of order vs. chaos and off they went with ideas. My assignment for the summer was to visit seaports, research ships and their wrecks, and not worry about the direction of the project. This is place to collect pictures of the tall ships I had an excuse to go visit my photos and research.

Since both John and Clif Stoltze touched on the idea of using the flow of Moby Dick as a means of placing the elements, I’ve started to revisit Moby Dick. I haven’t finished the book yet, so that’s something I’ll need to do over winter break.
For the time being, I’ve started pulling quotes (both long and short) that represent (in my opinion) the fast-paced segments as well as the lulls. I will work these into the design. For now I have left out the depth readings because I feel as though they’ll end up looking too cluttered in the end. We’ll see though. Rigging lines, obviously, have not been added yet.
The screenshot above is of a 45” by 48” sheet of paper that will be divvied up into 40 6” x 9” pages.

SAR

SAR (SEARCH AND RESCUE) PATTERNS
[source

  • Expanding Square Pattern
  • Victor Sierra Pattern
  • Parallel or Creeping Line Pattern
  • First Responder Search (calculates set and drift from last known position (LKP) based upon the elapsed time from mishap and establishes a Commence Search Point (CSP) and a search pattern.)

[source]

BASIC SEARCH AND RESCUE PATTERN PRACTICE
[source

  • Trackline: When the path of target is known, fly the path. After reaching the CSP, fly the Major Axis first. The multiple Trackline is used to bracket either side of the known path.
  • Parallel: General pattern to cover large areas. After reaching the CSP, fly the Major Axis first.
  • Creep: When the probability of the target being at one end of the pattern or the other, this pattern covers large areas. After reaching the CSP, fly the Major Axis first.
  • Sector: Usually the first pattern flown upon reaching an assigned location. This pattern may be commenced upon arrival if no other instructions have been received. The first leg should be downwind, and default uses 10 NM legs.

110910-G-0000-001 Coast Guard search patterns for missing man
BOSTON – Search patterns of multiple Coast Guard crews covering 615 miles in a nearly 200 square mile search for a missing man near Monhegan Island, Maine, is depicted in this image, Saturday, Sept. 10, 2011. Crews began searching for the man from Dublin, Ireland, Friday when a wave swept him out to see while looking at caves from the island. Four of his friends jumped in to rescue him, but lost sight of him. U.S. Coast Guard image.
