|Dutch term or phrase: lessenaar|
|Again, no useful context. It's part of a ship, near the joystick controller. Any nautical translators out there?|

Zo zou ik het uit het hoofd trouwens ook vertalen.

A lessenaar is a reading desk apparently. Could be used for charts perhaps.

APPENDIX G of an evolution, such as movement toward a pier during docking. Bridge layout and procedures also have been designed to facilitate visual navigation. For ex- ample, the steering stand usually is located on the centerline of the ship and somewhat back from the front of the bndge. A gyroscopic (gyro) compass repeater normally is mounted above the steer- ing stand on modern ships, although on many older ships the steering stand is configured as a binnacle, on which the gyrocompass repeater is mounted (with the gyrocompass usually located off the bridge). A magnetic compass normally is mounted in the binnacle (or in a holder mounted on or in front of the steering stand). The magnetic compass was retained to provide a means to detect mal- function aIld error as well as to back up the gyrocompasses before they were proven reliable (magnetic compasses still serve a general backup function). On most ships, propulsion is controlled or ordered from a stand or console located near the steering stand. On modern ships, some form of console usually extends outboard on one or both sides of the steering stand; several groups of controls, switches, and enunciators are located on the console for managing com- munications, lights, engine and steering alarms, horns and whistles, and other systems the person conning the vessel might need. Radars usually are located outboard of the console and slightly forward. Most ships have two radars, one or both of which are configured as, or connected to, an Automatic Radar Plotting Aid (ARPA). An instrument board usually is located forward of the steering stand, above the windows. This long, narrow panel contains a clock and indicators for rudder angle, engine revolutions per minute, gyroscope heading, ship speed, and depth under keel or water depth. The panel also may include displays that are useful during maneuvering, such as a rate-of-turn indicator or a docking Doppler. Aft of the steering station is the chart room. This may be an actual room or simply an area that can be closed off at night with curtains or panels to prevent its light from flooding the steering area. The main feature of the chart room is usually a rectangular table, where the navigator can spread charts for voyage planning, plotting the ship's trackline, and so forth. There is normally a chart table on the bridge, where actual position plotting is accomplished. Navigation instruments are usually located nearby, although some may be placed in the chart room. These instruments generally include traditional equipment for celes- tial navigation, such as the sextant and chronometer, and some or all of the electronic navigation displays and controls. Electronic navigation refers to all techniques and systems that rely on electronic devices, including radio, radar, Loran C, and satellite navigation systems such as Transit and the Global Posi- tioning System.i Electronic navigation also refers to inertial, bathymetric, and Doppler navigation, which have not attained broad use in merchant shipping.
