AIB Pitfalls

You're the Officer of the Middle Watch sailing at close quarters with another vessel.
Keeping a weather eye on her starboard steaming light-- you suddenly see both her port and starboard lights.
What steps do you take?

Quite!
But I rather think you would have failed

Noob here but: the info implies it is now headed towards my port side? (although next action is counter to ColRegs about making decisions on questionable-info). Turn hard to starboard at best speed. Immediatley contact the vessel if possible to discuss preventing a collision.

Someone please reply with correct sequence of actions :)

From a purely IRPCS view:

1) 5+ horns
2) Bear to port (you should pass stbd to stbd)
3) Initiate radio contact on channel 16

The safest course of action when confronted by a thread started by this particular OP is to keep scrolling and move on.
 
^ In general terms @Ballistic is absolutely spot on, but as to the particular:

In a 'Serious Section' of RR, under the guise of 'AIB-Pitfalls', Nippit has posted a version (incomplete BTW) of an age-old 'question' which drew in poor @Anchor Faced and the know-it-all-'cos-I-did-the-RYA-course {size seven seaboots, please}, sea sprout cadet Leg End.

Clues which you both missed include; context, <<starboard steaming light>>, and his sole purpose of trotting out that once-humorous but oft-repeated punch line.

Don't worry but be wary, Nippit is probably still 'ROTFL-ing' & 'PMSL-ing'at his own feeble joke. :rolleyes:
