Manuevers in Ship Handling

Crossing in clear Visibility:

When a vessel is crossing another vessel in clear visibility, the OOW (Officer on Watch) should take the following actions as per the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs):

  • Keep a sharp lookout: The OOW should maintain a constant watch and look out for other vessels that may pose a risk of collision.
  • Determine the risk of collision: The OOW should assess the risk of collision by taking into account factors such as the distance, bearing, and speed of the other vessel.
  • Take early action: If the OOW believes that a risk of collision exists, the OOW should take early action to avoid a collision by altering the vessel’s course and/or speed. The OOW should also communicate with the other vessel using other means, such as VHF radio, to establish contact and exchange information as necessary to avoid a collision.
  • Avoid crossing ahead: If the OOW determines that a crossing situation exists, the OOW should take action to avoid crossing ahead of the other vessel. The OOW should also sound the appropriate sound signals to indicate the vessel’s intentions.
  • Monitor the other vessel: The OOW should continue to monitor the other vessel and take action as necessary to avoid a collision. If the other vessel does not take appropriate action to avoid a collision, the OOW should sound the appropriate sound signals to indicate the vessel’s intentions.
  • Record the incident: After the situation has been resolved, the OOW should record the incident in the vessel’s logbook and report it to the Master as soon as possible.

Rules of the Road (ROR)

On Questions regarding ROR, ensure that you answer word to word from Cockroft- ROR book.

How many rules in ROR?

There are a total of 38 rules in the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS), which are commonly known as the “Rules of the Road.” These rules were established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and are intended to promote safe navigation and prevent collisions between vessels at sea.

Part B Section 3 of ROR:

Part B Section 3 of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGS) pertains to conduct of vessels in restricted visibility.

Restricted visibility is defined as any condition in which visibility is restricted by fog, mist, falling snow, heavy rainstorms, sandstorms, or any other similar causes. In such conditions, the OOW must take appropriate measures to navigate the vessel safely and avoid collisions.

Key Rules under Part B Section 3 of COLREGS:

  • Rule 19: Every vessel should proceed at a safe speed that is appropriate for the conditions, while taking into account any restrictions to visibility.
  • Rule 20: Every vessel should use its navigation lights to signal its presence and its status to other vessels in the vicinity.
  • Rule 21: Every vessel should sound the appropriate signal for restricted visibility to indicate its position, course, and speed to other vessels in the vicinity.
  • Rule 22: Every vessel should listen to the appropriate signal for restricted visibility and take the necessary action to avoid collision.
  • Rule 23: Every vessel should use radar to determine the presence, course, and speed of other vessels in the vicinity, and to take appropriate action to avoid collision.
  • Rule 35: Every vessel should avoid anchoring in or near a narrow channel or where it may obstruct or foul a channel.
  • Rule 36: Every vessel should avoid impeding the passage of other vessels in a narrow channel by taking action well in advance, using all available means, to keep clear of other vessels and avoid causing a danger of collision.

In summary, Part B Section 3 of COLREGS provides guidance for the safe navigation of vessels in conditions of restricted visibility, including the use of navigation lights, sounding of appropriate signals, use of radar, and taking action to avoid collisions.

Rule 29: Pilot Vessels

  • (a) A vessel engaged in pilotage duty shall exhibit:
  • (i) at or near the masthead, two all-round lights in a vertical line, the upper being white and the lower red;
  • (ii) when underway, in addition, sidelights and a sternlight.
  • (iii) when at anchor, in addition to the lights prescribed in subparagraph (i), the light, lights or shape prescribed in Rule 30 for vessels at anchor.
  • (b) A pilot vessel when not engaged on pilotage duty shall exhibit the lights or shapes prescribed for a similar vessel of her length.

Rule 6 b of ROR:

Every vessel shall at all times proceed at a safe speed so that she can take proper and effective action to avoid collision and be stopped within a distance appropriate to the prevailing circumstances and conditions.

In determining a safe speed, the following factors shall be among those taken into account:

b) Additionally, by vessels with operational radar:

  • (i) the characteristics, efficiency and limitations of the radar equipment;
  • (ii) any constraints imposed by the radar range scale in use;
  • (iii) the effect on radar detection of the sea state, weather and other sources of interference;
  • (iv) the possibility that small vessels, ice and other floating objects, may not be detected by radar at an adequate range;
  • (v) the number, location and movement of vessels detected by radar;
  • (vi) the more exact assessment of the visibility that may be possible when radar is used to determine the range of vessels or other objects in the vicinity.

Rule 19 b of ROR:

Every vessel shall proceed at a safe speed adapted to the prevailing circumstances and conditions of restricted visibility. A power-driven vessel shall have her engines ready for immediate manaeuvre.

Rule 32: Definitions

  • (a) The word ‘whistle’ means any sound signalling appliance capable of producing the prescribed blasts and which complies with the specifications in Annex I11 to these Regulations.
  • (b) The term ‘short blast’ means a blast of about one second’s duration.
  • (c) The term ‘prolonged blast’ means a blast of from four to six seconds’ duration.

Rule 34(d):

When vessels in sight of one another are approaching each other and from any cause either vessel fails to understand the intentions or actions of the other, or is in doubt whether sufficient action is being taken by the other to avoid collision, the vessel in doubt shall immediately indicate such doubt by giving at least five short and rapid blasts on the whistle. Such signal may be supplemented by a light signal of at least five short and rapid flashes.

Rule 38: Exemptions

Any vessel (or class of vessels) provided that she complies with the requirements of the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1960, the keel of which is laid or which is at a corresponding stage of construction before the entry into force of these Regulations, may be exempted from compliance therewith as follows:

  • (a) The installation of lights with ranges prescribed in Rule 22, until four years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (b) The installation of lights with colour specifications as prescribed in Section 7 of Annex I to these Regulations, until four years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (c) The repositioning of lights as a result of conversion from Imperial to metric units and rounding off measurement figures, permanent exemption.
  • (d) (i) The repositioning of masthead lights on vessels of less than 150 metres in length, resulting from the prescriptions of Section 3(a) of Annex I to these Regulations, permanent exemption.
  • (ii) The repositioning of masthead lights on vessels of 150 metres or more in length, resulting from the prescriptions of Section 3(a) of Annex I to these Regulations, until
  • nine years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (e) The repositioning of masthead lights resulting from the prescriptions of Section 2(b) of Annex I to these Regulations, until nine years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (f) The repositioning of sidelights resulting from the prescriptions of Sections 2(g) and 3(b) of Annex I to these Regulations, until nine years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (g) The requirements for sound signal appliances prescribed in Annex I11 to these Regulations, until nine years after the date of entry into force of these Regulations.
  • (h) The repositioning of all-round lights resulting from the prescription of Section 9(b) of Annex I to these Regulations, permanent exemption.

Which all rules apply in restricted visibility?

When a vessel is operating in restricted visibility, which is defined as any condition where visibility is restricted by fog, mist, falling snow, heavy rainstorms, sandstorms, or any other similar causes, the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (COLREGs) require that certain specific rules be followed to prevent collisions. Here are some of the key rules that apply in restricted visibility:

  • Rule 19: Conduct of vessels in restricted visibility: This rule requires that vessels in restricted visibility proceed at a safe speed, use their radar and other navigational aids to the fullest extent possible, and avoid any maneuvers that would create a risk of collision. If necessary, vessels must take early and substantial action to avoid a collision, and if a risk of collision is detected, they must use all available means to determine the other vessel’s course and speed.
  • Rule 35: Sound signals in restricted visibility: This rule requires vessels in restricted visibility to make appropriate sound signals to indicate their position, course, and speed. Vessels should use the appropriate signals based on their size and type, and should also listen for signals from other vessels to help determine their position and course.
  • Rule 7: Risk of collision: This rule requires vessels to use all available means to determine if there is a risk of collision, and to take action to avoid such risk. In restricted visibility, this may involve using radar, sound signals, and other navigational aids to detect the presence and course of other vessels.
  • Rule 8: Action to avoid collision: This rule requires vessels to take early and substantial action to avoid a collision, and to make the action apparent to the other vessel as soon as possible. In restricted visibility, this may involve using sound signals, altering course, reducing speed, or taking other appropriate actions to avoid a collision.
  • Rule 19(d): Departure from these rules: This rule allows vessels to depart from the rules in order to avoid immediate danger, but only to the extent necessary to avoid such danger. If a vessel departs from the rules, it must sound the appropriate signal to indicate its actions to other vessels.

Short Blast:

In the context of marine navigation, a short blast refers to a sound signal made using a vessel’s whistle or horn. The sound of a short blast is a sharp and brief emission of sound, typically lasting about one second.

The purpose of a short blast is to communicate a specific message or warning to other vessels in the vicinity. Short blasts are used in a variety of situations, including:

  • When a vessel is changing its course to port (left), it should sound one short blast to indicate its intention.
  • When a vessel is changing its course to starboard (right), it should sound two short blasts to indicate its intention.
  • A vessel may sound one short blast when approaching a bend or intersection in a narrow channel or fairway.
  • When underway but stopped and making way through the water, a vessel may sound one short blast every two minutes to indicate its position and direction of movement.
  • In restricted visibility, a vessel should sound one short blast every two minutes to indicate its position and direction of movement.
  • A vessel may sound a series of short blasts to signal danger, such as an obstacle or other hazard.

Prolonged Blast:

A prolonged blast is a continuous sounding of a horn or whistle on a vessel. The purpose of a prolonged blast is to signal the vessel’s presence and its intention to maneuver in a certain way or to warn other vessels of danger.

Here are some points on when and how to use a prolonged blast:

  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used as a warning signal to indicate that a vessel is about to get underway and is making way through the water.
  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used as a signal for a vessel to signify that it is changing its course to port.
  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used as a signal for a vessel to signify that it is changing its course to starboard.
  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used as a signal for a vessel to signify that it is stopping or reducing its speed.
  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used as a warning signal to indicate that a vessel is approaching a bend or area of reduced visibility on a narrow channel or fairway.
  • In foggy conditions, a prolonged blast of at least 6-8 seconds is used by a vessel at anchor to signal its presence.
  • A prolonged blast of at least 4-6 seconds is used in case of danger or emergency situations, such as to warn other vessels of the vessel’s position, to request assistance or to warn other vessels to keep clear.

Fixed fire fighting system in last ship, maintainance (weekly, monthly, yearly, 3 yearly and 5 yearly) Asked a few regulation of the same I didn’t know Enclosed space entry in 4s COT, what all steps. (I started with Purging, risk assessment, gas check) cut me off and asked about calibration. Explained calibration. Asked where the regulation for maximum concentration for various gasses are written. I answered isgott, he asked from where does isgott get its values – I didn’t know this, he explained tlv and all. Now started going onto technicals of the newest gas detector (multi gas detector, neither tank scope nor explosimeter.) couldn’t answer this either. He asked me about UTI. Working principle. I explained what I know from manuals I have read on board. He was impressed with this. He then asked how does it detect the interface. I said conduction principle. (at this point he explained capacitance and all the funda) After this he said he would have given 10 if I had gotten capacitance and the new Gas Detector right..F3

Taking over watch on LNG carrier. Something DIQ?? Coming out of dry dock, the voyage cycle of LNG carrier?? More questions on LNG, can’t remember Then for crude oil he asked… Cargo calculation. He Gave me a book and told me to show step by step calculation. Asked about vcf. Which tables we get it from? Tried to confuse SF/BM what it is and how to calculate? How to check the quality of IG? I said oxygen content. He asked suppose all your readings in the CCR  are showing less than 5% but they can be wrong, how will you check whether they are right? I said I’ll check individual cargo tanks oxygen level and compare it with the figures inside. He said no. Don’t know what he wanted… Then, you are at the manifold as instructed by chief officer and he’s in CCR starting the cargo pumps and a loud noise is heard which causes manifold connection to break away leading to spillage. What will you do as an Officer who’s on deck near the manifold. Your actions. Which flag is to be raised for ship loading carrying dangerous cargo. I said B. Then he gave me a bunch of flags and told me to identify B flag. Then, IMDG code. Explain the segregation table. Then, C.S.M. what it is and who approves it. Then hazards of Reduced Iron.

So justify going to port using 2b.OV in TSS crossing vessel from starboard side. So in TSS normal rules apply i.e own vessel to give way.Above situation but in Narrow channel then own vessel becomes stand on vessel.CBD vessel. CBD has PD vessel on starboard bow. So has to know CBD does not have right of way and has to reduce speed, however the PD vessel may give way depending on the situation but is not required.Towing vessel. Towing vessel on port bow.  So has to know that own vessel is stand on vessel unless towing vessel is showing RAM lights.PD vessel being overtaken by FV.

Asked folks around said he is a new surveyor Name is Opnuv.  (Tall and dark) – what is rational horizon – How many types of horizon are there – What is ground and sea stabilised – If the arpa stops working how will you get cpa – Show a brief way of finding out. He wasn’t a to hear owa triangle. – Crossing situation – What is relative and true vector. How does it look on a radar ppi – Our ships course is north and a vessel to my NE. And she is doing 270. Kinda crossing situation. – Show relative and true vector. (Will make you draw a radar ppi and show, they way you show is going to determine test questions ) – How you will you know if roc exist or no if arpa is not working – If roc doesn’t exist then what will you do to maintain company cpa. – He spoke in English and Hindi. I could not make sense of his questions. – So eventually he decided that I was focusing on company’s requirements of cpa and not colregs.F1

VAZ18-OCT-19Rules of section 1,2 & 3 None were direct questions. No situations, no cards. He wants to see your understanding of the rules and wants you to connect all the dots between the sections. A lot of Cross questioning. Will rule 19 apply when you sight the vessel or a light just less than 1 mile? Ans – yes rule 19 still applies because restricted visibility is a general term and not to be used for one to one situations. Also too many cross questioning to check if you stay confident with your answer. How will you determine risk of collision in r.v (He wants to hear all available means) I answered Radar, Ais, sound signal, VHF. He said I missed out one, he didn’t tell me the answer.

VAZ21-JULY-171) your radar is on 24 miles.. u can see a land which is 50 miles away… How? 2) when 2 or 3 lights carried out separtion between them…. I told him 2m and 1m thing as per annex1…. He said wrong 3) he asked me from where height of light taken…. I said above hull… Then what is above hull….i said upper most continuous deck….. He said wrong….. 3) manoeuvring light distance…. I said as per annex…. Said wrong…. Then i showed him ror book….. He said don’t argue….. 4) rv situation one vessel fwd of beam and fishing vessel starboard beam action? I said reduce speed…. He said wrong take wide alteration to port and pass ahead….. I said as per 19d wrong said don’t argue…. Please listen to errol Fernandez speech… 5) difference between raster and vector charts….

VERMA9-SEPT-20crossing situation, reducing CPA , at what point you will take action as stand on ( he wants us to take action when 6-7 miles before close quarters situation as a stand on vsl), in between was asking the understanding of the situation as per the rules ( no need to quote word by word, if u can explain it better using important key words), then overtaking situation with understanding of rules, and then restricted visibility situation with understanding of rules. ( All the situation my vsl is stand on & also while giving your action, when he said range is more than 4 miles, Don’t blindly say ‘5 short & rapid blasts’ as its range is only 2m) He was satisfied with my situations analysis, so didn’t ask much. Passage plan from Mumbai – Antwerp (Belgium) using Chart and ECDIS (wants practical knowledge only) – start with rough passage route, then from chart catalogue see the positions and the required chart to be needed, small scale and large scale, then check what all charts u have, what needs to order and are they corrected till latest NTMs, rest all you can add as per your knowledge, ( don’t rush up take it slow and explain as much as u can, he will forget what was his question and he will move on to next)…wants to hear how to plot T&P correction practically ( with pencil ), what are nav warnings how to plot, where to get.

VIBHUTI18-DEC-17He will ask u so many situation,and when you will answer he will also try to confuse you but just stand by to ur answers don’t panic. Situation like crossing, overtaking and rv and so many. Ur gyro  failed action at sea. What do you mean by Compasses compared,courses checked. Gave a question related to Mag. Heading ,gyro heading and now ur gyro fails what course will you steer. What is true vector and what is relative vector. When will the true and relative vector be same. How will u know a pilot vessel is underway or making way. Radar not working bearing constant, range decreasing a target near the horizon how will determine her movement.
