What is TRUE when operating in fog and other vessels are detected by radar?

A. you should make an ample change to port for a vessel crossing on the starboard bow
B. You should maneuver in ample time if a close-quarters situation is developing
C. you should determine the course and speed of all radar contacts at 6-minute intervals
D. lon-range scanning will provide early warning of ALL other vessels within the radar's range
You are on a power-driven vessel in fog. Your vessels is proceeding at a safe speed when you hear a fog signal ahead of you. The Rules require you to navigate with caution and, if danger of collision exists:

A. slow to less than 2 knots
B. reduce to bare steerageway
C. stop your engines
D. initiate radar plot
By radar alone, you detect a vessel ahead on a collision course, about 3 miles distant. Your radar plot shows this to be a meeting situation. You should:

A. turn to port
B. turn to starboard
C. maintain course and speed and sound the danger signal
D. maintain course and speed and sound no signal
B - also states to take avoiding action in ample time!!!
You hear the fog signal of another vessel forward your beam. Risk of collision may exist. You MUST:

A. stop your engines
B. take all way off, if necessary
C. begin a radar plot
D. all of the above
In restricted visibility, a vessel which detects by radar alone, the presence of another vessel shall determine if a close quarters situation is developing or risk of collision exists. If so, she shall:

A. sound the danger signal
B. when taking action, make only course changes
C. avoid altering course toward a vessel abaft the beam
D. All of the above
C - rule 19 states to avoid (if possible) an alteration of course toward a vessel abeam or abaft the beam in restricted visibility.
Your vessel is underway in reduced visibility. You hear the fog signal of another vessel about 30* on your starboard bow. If danger of collision exists, you MUST:

A. alter course to starboard to pass around the other vessel's stern
B. slow your engines and let the other vessel pass ahead of you
C. reduce your speed to bare steerageway
D. alter course to port and pass the other vessel on its port side
You are underway in fog. You hear the fog signal of a vessel which is somewhere ahead of your vessel. You MUST:

A. slow to moderate speed and navigate with caution
B. maintain speed and sound the danger signal
C. stop engines and navigate with caution
D. slow to bare steerageway and navigate with caution
A vessel hearing a fog signal forward of her be a has not determine if risk of collision exists. She shall reduce speed to:

A. moderate speed
B. safe speed
C. half speed
D. bare steerageway
In fog, you observe your radar and determine that risk of collision exists with a vessel which is 2 miles off your port bow. You should:

A. stop your engines
B. sound the danger signal at 2-minute intervals
C. hold course and speed until the other vessel is sighted
D. take avoiding action as soon as possible
You are in restricted visibility and hear a fog signal forward to the beam. Nothing appears on your radar screen. You must:

A. stop your engines
B. sound 2 prolonged blasts of the whistle
C. sound the danger signal
D. slow to bare steerageway
Term which is defined as "behind or aft" of a vessel's beam.
