The ‘passage plan’ would be constructed under the four main principles of:

• Appraisal
• Planning
• Execution
• Monitoring

Specific attention must be paid to adequate under keel clearance throughout the period of passage from ‘Berth to Berth’ positions. The plan would highlight ‘No-Go’ areas and contain relevant contingencies for dealing with respective, possible emergencies and be security assessed. Navigation warnings, focal points and areas of specific operations would be highlighted within the final plan. Communication points, radar conspicuous targets and position monitoring methods would be noted on the chart.
