                        if the cpa matters , and collision cant be avoided by the give way vsl alone then i will alter other wise , maintain co and speed.

                          take the series of brg if risk of collision does not exist the maintain co and speed if roc exist the i will give five sort and rapid blast, check nav lights, inform master,inform engine room,put helms men and still she is not taking an action then one short blasta/co to stbd if depth available or reduce speed
