Question: 1 / 50

If you only see a white light on another vessel, you should...

Give way

Signal the vessel

Go around it on either side

If you only see a white light on another vessel, it indicates that the other vessel is not showing any colored lights. This most likely means that the other vessel is not moving, such as a moored or anchored vessel. In this scenario, the correct action is to go around the vessel on either side to avoid collision. Option A, giving way, is not necessary as the other vessel is not moving. Option B, signaling the vessel, may not be effective as it is not clear what type of signal to use. Option D, increasing speed, would only create a greater risk of collision and should be avoided. Therefore, option C is the best choice in this situation.

Increase speed
