COLREG weekly question-Sole lookout


This week’s question is the final one of the general OOW questions, next week the posts will be moving on to ‘fitness for duty’.

Question: What is the MCA’s view on the use of the OOW as sole lookout?

Whilst pondering on the answer have a quick revision of this paragraph of Rule 3, Definitions:

(l) The term “restricted visibility” means any condition in which visibility is restricted by fog, mist, falling snow, heavy rainstorms, sandstorms or any other similar causes.
