    Really Scared about Final Exams and Collision Avoidance

    Hi Guys,

    I have my oral exams soon and I am starting to really worry about COLREGS and how to apply them. I overheard some of my classmates talking about the following situation and I cant work out the answer. I have been up for hours reading all the rules and still cant figure it out.........

    I am a vessel restricted in ability to manoeuvre towing a fishing vessel that I have just rescued which is still engaged in trawling and not under command. I am also navigating within restricted limits so have the option to define myself as constrained by draught.

    Another vessel is crossing my bow from the port side with CPA 0. This vessel is also restricted in ability to manoeuvre since it is dredging. From my position I can see two red lights displayed in addition to the ther indicating the side on which it is not safe to pass. I also have a vessel not under command overtaking me on the port side.

    I have tried to work out the answer but I cant. Im sure I have to keep out the the way of the vessel overtaking me since its not under command but cannot turn to port for the vessel in front.

    I asked what it says in the masters orders but he hasnt given any description of what to do in this situation.

    I really hope they dont ask me this question in my orals because Im going to fail if they do.

    Cheers guys,
