If you rely upon the extended and accurate look-out which is provided by radar to justify immoderate speed, you must be careful to see that you use your radar properly and with seamanlike prudence upon the indications and inferences which are given by it, or may be drawn from the data supplied by it. (Mr Justice Hewson, 1963) The radar should be properly set up, making such adjustments to the controls as may be necessary to achieve maximum efficiency. To check that this efficiency is being maintained the performance monitor should be used at frequent intervals.

I am satisfied that it came about because a bad look-out was being kept on board the Spiruhy. I appreciate the fact that she is only a small vessel which carries a crew of no more than eight hands. It is dangerous to lay down any absolute rules. All I desire to say - and I desire to say it with all the emphasis at my command, supported, as I am in this respect by the advice which I have received from the Elder Brethren - is that in no circumstances can it be right for a vessel of the class of the Spirulify to be left with only one man on deck - a man who had to do everything, control the ship, keep a look-out, and so forth - for a period which must, as I have said, have extended for the best part of ten minutes.

To check that this efficiency is being maintained the performance monitor should be used at frequent intervals. If any shadow sectors or blind arcs are suspected, or known, to be present, the vessel should be swung off course for a short period at regular intervals so that they may be examined. The us Coast Guard investigation of the collision between the vessels Sparrows Point and Manx Fisher found that the Manx Fisher had approached within the shadow sector of the radar of the Sparrows Point.
