    A stand-on vessel might need to take evasive action. Every operator is
    responsible for avoiding a collision. Operators must consider all dangers
    of navigation; risk of collisions; and any special conditions, including
    the limitations of the vessels involved. A departure from the navigation
    rules might be necessary to avoid immediate danger.

    The points you raise are covered in our online courses and our YouTube
    video Encountering Other Vessels. The action a vessel operator should take
    when encountering another vessel depends on the answers to two questions:
    (1) How are the two vessels propelled? (2) How are the two vessels
    approaching one another? (Are the vessels meeting head-on? On paths that
    cross? Overtaking?)
