Explanation:
Please don't count on my attempt here. I just understand "hand bearing" means the object can be actually carried by hand. And the compass may be the took you use on the motorboat to know the exact direction like on a ship o the sea. I'm not at all familair with the motorboat, so some savvy could be giving you more proper answers...
