Spanish term or phrase:compás de magistral, compás de respeto y compás de puntas
Explanation: I couldn't find a reference for "compás de respeto" but I believe it must be a pelorus, or dumb-compass, which is a device with sights and a compass rose used to determine the ship's position in respect to landmarks or other vessels.
Reference: My experience in the U.S. Navy.
