    You are a fishing vessel engaged in fishing, which of the folowing vessels should you keep clear of

    • A.

      Vessel constrained by draft

    • B.

      R.A.M.

    • C.

      Sailing vessel

    • D.

      P.D.V.

    Correct Answer
    B. R.A.M.
    Explanation
    A fishing vessel should keep clear of a R.A.M. (Restricted in Ability to Maneuver) vessel. This is because a R.A.M. vessel is limited in its ability to maneuver due to its size, shape, or draft. As a fishing vessel, it is important to avoid any potential collision or interference with other vessels, especially those that have restricted maneuverability.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the best description of a vessel engaged in fishing

    • A.

      From the nature of her work is unable to keep out the way of another

    • B.

      They are fishing convoy

    • C.

      They are restricted to keep clear because of some exceptional circumstances

    • D.

      She is restricted to maneuver due to her fishing gear

    Correct Answer
    D. She is restricted to maneuver due to her fishing gear
    Explanation
    A vessel engaged in fishing is restricted to maneuver due to her fishing gear. This means that the fishing gear, such as nets or lines, can limit the vessel's ability to change direction or avoid obstacles. The fishing gear may be spread out in the water, making it difficult for the vessel to navigate freely. Therefore, the vessel is unable to keep out of the way of another vessel or maintain a clear path.

    • A.

      Radar is used as position fixing instrument only

    • B.

      The information from the radar is accurate, it can be relied upon in place of a look out

    • C.

      Radar will be used only on restricted visibility

    • D.

      Radar shall be use in any condition of visibility

    Correct Answer
    D. Radar shall be use in any condition of visibility
    Explanation
    Radar can be used in any condition of visibility because it is capable of detecting and tracking objects even in low visibility situations such as fog, rain, or darkness. It provides valuable information about the position, speed, and direction of other vessels or objects in the vicinity, enhancing situational awareness and aiding in collision avoidance. Therefore, radar is not limited to being used only in restricted visibility but can be utilized in any weather or visibility condition to improve navigation safety.

In this situation, the appropriate action would be to alter course to starboard and pass the other vessel port to port. This means changing direction to the right and passing the other vessel on its left side. This action is necessary to avoid a head-on collision and is a standard practice for power-driven vessels encountering another vessel showing its stern light.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which of the following vessel is unable to keep out the way of the other due to the nature of her work

    • A.

      R.A.M.

    • B.

      N.U.C.

    • C.

      Sailing vessel

    • D.

      P.D.V.

    Correct Answer
    A. R.A.M.
    Explanation
    R.A.M. stands for Restricted in Ability to Maneuver. This means that the vessel is unable to keep out of the way of other vessels due to the nature of her work. Restricted in Ability to Maneuver vessels are typically large, slow-moving ships such as tankers or cargo ships that require a significant amount of time and space to change course or stop. This restriction is usually due to the vessel's size, draft, or the nature of the cargo it is carrying.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    You are an officer on navigational watch, how can a vessel be in sight

    • A.

      A vessel that can be seen from the bridge visually

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. A vessel that can be seen from the bridge visually
    Explanation
    A vessel can be considered "in sight" if it can be seen visually from the bridge. This means that the officer on navigational watch is able to physically see the vessel with their own eyes. This is the most reliable way to confirm the presence of another vessel and ensure safe navigation.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Which of the following conditions does not define a vessel constrain by draft

    • A.

      The draft is a little less than the depth of the water

    • B.

      When she experienced squat

    • C.

      When she is in deep water

    • D.

      The bottom is near the sea bottom

    Correct Answer
    C. When she is in deep water
    Explanation
    This condition does not define a vessel constrained by draft because being in deep water does not impose any restrictions or limitations on the vessel's draft. The draft of a vessel refers to the vertical distance between the waterline and the deepest part of the vessel below the water's surface. In deep water, the vessel has sufficient depth to navigate without any concerns about draft limitations. Therefore, this condition is not relevant to defining a vessel constrained by draft.

    Between a fishing vessel with nets, lines on board and a power driven vessel on a head on situation, who shall keep out the way of the other

    • A.

      Both of them

    • B.

      Any of them

    • C.

      Power driven vessel following Rule 18

    • D.

      Fishing vessel because of her condition

    Correct Answer
    A. Both of them
    Explanation
    Both the fishing vessel and the power-driven vessel should keep out of the way of each other. This means that both vessels have a responsibility to take action to avoid a collision. The specific rules for determining which vessel should give way may depend on the situation and the navigation rules in place, but in this case, it is not clear which vessel should have the right of way. Therefore, both vessels should take appropriate measures to avoid a potential collision.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    You see a vessel who is required to keep out the way of another is taking an appropriate action in a crossing situation, what will be your possible action as stand on vessel

    • A.

      Maintain your course and speed

    • B.

      Avoid altering course to port towards the other vessel

    • C.

      Increase your speed

    • D.

      Sound an appropriate signal for a crossing situation

    Correct Answer
    A. Maintain your course and speed
    Explanation
    As a stand on vessel, your possible action would be to maintain your course and speed. This is because the vessel who is required to keep out of the way of another is already taking appropriate action in the crossing situation. By maintaining your course and speed, you are allowing the give-way vessel to navigate around you safely. Altering course to port towards the other vessel or increasing your speed could potentially create confusion and increase the risk of a collision. Sounding an appropriate signal for a crossing situation is not necessary in this scenario as the other vessel is already taking appropriate action.

    Explanation
    A large angle alteration as a course of action to avoid collision would be advantageous because it would make it more apparent to another vessel that there is an action being taken to avoid the close quarter situation. This would help in alerting the other vessel to the presence and intentions of the ship, reducing the risk of a collision.

    When the heading of two approaching vessel is on a reciprocal, but only the port sidelight is visible, what will be your action

    • A.

      Alter course to starboard

    • B.

      Give way

    • C.

      Maintain course and speed

    • D.

      Apply the rule on crossing situation

    Correct Answer
    C. Maintain course and speed
    Explanation
    If the heading of two approaching vessels is on a reciprocal, but only the port sidelight is visible, it means that the other vessel is approaching from the starboard side. In this situation, the correct action would be to maintain course and speed. This is because the port sidelight indicates that the other vessel is to the left of your vessel, and therefore, you have the right of way. By maintaining course and speed, you are following the rules of navigation and allowing the other vessel to take appropriate action to avoid a collision.

    If you are a vessel approaching a traffic scheme from the termination of the lane, how are you going to join the general traffic flow

    • A.

      Join at right angle

    • B.

      As per instruction of the vessel traffic system

    • C.

      Join at a small angle from the side

    • D.

      Keep near the outer limit on your starboard side

    Correct Answer
    D. Keep near the outer limit on your starboard side
    Explanation
    When approaching a traffic scheme from the termination of the lane, it is recommended to keep near the outer limit on your starboard side. This means that you should stay close to the right-hand side of the lane. By doing so, you will be able to smoothly merge into the general traffic flow without obstructing other vessels. This approach ensures a safer and more efficient flow of traffic within the scheme.

    • A.

      Enough to alter course

    • B.

      To the minimum

    • C.

      The distance that it will require the vessel to go from full ahead to full astern

    • D.

      Appropriate to the prevailing situation

    Correct Answer
    D. Appropriate to the prevailing situation
    Explanation
    When approaching dense traffic, it is important to adjust your speed to the prevailing situation. This means that you should maintain a speed that is suitable and safe given the traffic conditions. It may be necessary to slow down or even stop completely in order to avoid collisions or navigate through the traffic safely. The correct answer suggests that the speed should be appropriate to the prevailing situation, indicating the need to adapt and match the speed to the conditions at hand.

    Which of the following is the appropriate action to make when crossing a narrow channel

    • A.

      Pass near the outer limit on your starboard side

    • B.

      Cross at right angle of the channel

    • C.

      Keep clear of the vessel navigating safely a narrow channel

    • D.

      Cross with caution and observe the direction of the traffic

    Correct Answer
    C. Keep clear of the vessel navigating safely a narrow channel
    Explanation
    When crossing a narrow channel, it is important to keep clear of the vessel that is navigating safely through the channel. This means giving the right of way to the vessel that is already in the channel and ensuring that there is enough distance between your vessel and the navigating vessel to avoid any potential collisions or interference with its path. By keeping clear, you are prioritizing the safety and navigation of the vessel that is already in the narrow channel.

    Which of the following vessels is exempted from the rules of the traffic separation scheme

    • A.

      Vessel maintaining aids to navigation

    • B.

      R.A.M.

    • C.

      Submarine cable layer in operation

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Submarine cable layer in operation
    Explanation
    A submarine cable layer in operation is exempted from the rules of the traffic separation scheme. This is because a submarine cable layer is responsible for laying and maintaining submarine cables, which are essential for telecommunications and other purposes. Due to the nature of their work, submarine cable layers may need to deviate from the normal traffic separation scheme to ensure the proper installation and maintenance of these cables. Therefore, they are exempted from the rules to allow them the flexibility and freedom to carry out their tasks effectively.

    Which statement is true concerning risk of collision

    • A.

      The distance of the other vessel does not change with the same bearing

    • B.

      Risk of collision always exist when the compass bearing does not change

    • C.

      The distance of the other vessel is closing in with the same bearing

    • D.

      The 2 vessels is on reciprocal heading but not a head on collision

    Correct Answer
    C. The distance of the other vessel is closing in with the same bearing
    Explanation
    When the statement says "the distance of the other vessel is closing in with the same bearing," it means that the distance between the two vessels is decreasing, and they are maintaining the same relative position to each other. This indicates that there is a risk of collision because the vessels are on a converging course.

    How does an action by give way vessel be effective

    • A.

      When she alter course to port

    • B.

      When they are insight with one another

    • C.

      When done early and substantial

    • D.

      When a stand on vessel failed to act

    Correct Answer
    C. When done early and substantial
    Explanation
    When an action by a give way vessel is done early and substantial, it means that the vessel takes prompt and significant measures to avoid a collision. By altering its course to port (left), the give way vessel effectively shows its intention to yield and allows the stand on vessel to maintain its course and speed. This early and substantial action helps in preventing a potential collision and ensures the safety of both vessels.
