When leaving the seaport for the first time, the rudder commands do not make sense. The skipper did not a specific degree of rudder turn (i.e. 10 degrees or 1/3 rudder). Nor did he give a specific course for the helms man to steer (i.e. 150 degrees magnetic). See more
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
From the freedom-loving peoples of the United Nations to our merchant seaman on all the oceans goes our everlasting gratitude. With their aid, we shall build a bridge of ships to our allies, over which we will roll the implements of war. We shall see to it that men and materials will be delivered where they are needed and when they are needed. Nothing on land, in the air, on the sea, or under the sea shall prevent our complete and final victory.
