Overtaking. Unless you are passing another power-driven boat (B) from behind, you are considered the give-way craft (A) and do not have the right-of-way. You must take immediate and decisive action to maintain a safe distance between yourself and the other boat by modifying your speed and route.

What is the action when overtaking another vessel?
To show comprehension, Vessel A must blow one short blast and modify course to starboard, or blow two short blasts and shift course to port, and Vessel B must return the identical sound signal(s) as Vessel A.
When a vessel is overtaking another vessel which vessel must keep out of the way?
A vessel that is overtaking another vessel must stay out of the way of the vessel that is overtaking the other vessel. It is necessary for a vessel to presume that it has passed a vessel when there is any uncertainty about whether she is doing so. This is done to avoid collisions.
What actions should a vessel operator take to give way to another vessel?
Give-way vessel: A vessel that is obliged to take immediate and significant action in order to avoid being struck by other vessels, such as by halting, slowing down, or changing direction. Crossing in front of other vessels should be avoided. Any alteration in course and/or speed should be significant enough to be seen by another vessel.
What action should be done both vessel A and B on overtaking situation?
As required by Rule 16 (Action by give-way vessel), vessels A and B that are both commanded to remain clear of each other should, to the greatest extent practicable, take early and meaningful action to keep well clear of each other.
What is overtaking vessel?
(b) A vessel is deemed to be overtaking when approaching another vessel from a direction more than 22.5° abaft her beam, that is, when approaching the vessel she is overtaking from such a position with reference to the vessel she is overtaking that she would be able to see only the sternlight of that vessel but neither of her sidelights in the dark of night.
What action must an overtaking vessel take in case she doubts whether she is overtaking or not?
It is necessary for a vessel to presume that it has passed a vessel when there is any uncertainty about whether she is doing so. This is done to avoid collisions. Meaning: When there is any uncertainty as to whether a vessel is overtaking or not, it is recognized that the vessel is overtaking, which is the same command as before.
What considered overtaking?
keeping out of the way of the vessel that is being pursued (a) When a vessel comes up, it is deemed to be in the process of overtaking. greater than 22.5 degrees with another vessel coming from a different direction towards the aft end of her beam, that is, in a position relative to the vessel she is overtaking that would allow her visibility at night.
What is an overtaking situation?
Following the Rule(s) and making any necessary observations: In accordance with Rule 13 (b) (Overtaking scenario), when a vessel (vessel A) approaches another vessel (vessel B) from a direction greater than 22.5 degrees abaft her beam, the vessel (vessel A) is regarded to be overtaking.
What should you do when operating a power-driven vessel and a sailing vessel is overtaking your vessel?
Paths That Cross: The vessel that is driven by power is also the vessel that gives way. The sailing vessel serves as a stand-in for the main vessel. Vessels passing in front of another are referred to as the give-way vessel, regardless of whether they are sailed or propelled by a diesel engine. Overtaking vessels are always preceded by a stand-by vessel.
Which of the following actions is required of boat a while overtaking boat B in darkness?
Allow enough space on your starboard side. The powerboat B is approaching you head-on if you can see the white, red, and green lights on its hazard warning system. Allow enough space on your starboard side. A powerboat is approaching a sailboat head-on while just the red and green lights are visible.
Which vessel should give way?
The give-way vessel is the vessel that has the opposing boat coming up on its starboard side and is responsible for giving way. The stand-on vessel is the boat that comes in from the starboard side of the vessel. The stand-on vessel has the right of way, and it is the responsibility of the give-way vessel to maneuver in such a way as to prevent a collision with another vessel.
When a sailing vessel is overtaking a power-driven vessel and both are in sight of each other?
(a) When two power-driven vessels are approaching one other on reciprocal or nearly reciprocal courses in such a way that there is a danger of collision, each vessel should modify its course to starboard such that each vessel passes on the port side of the other vessel.
