Newcomer here: Hydrophone plotter - I understand the mapping of the initial three bearings into the course of the target. How do I get the Range on Bearing 4? Let's say I have it set for 10 min intervals. Do I

1. Plot board - plot my own position with the predicted bearing 4
2. Move out briskly and change position for say 8 minutes
3. Stop
4. Take a new bearing and plot that to cross the predicted bearing 4, giving my range?
5. Measure the distance to the crossing along bearing 4 (not the one I just took).

Is that the meaning of "Range on Bearing 4"?
