A bulk carrier was navigating at night with good weather and visibility. The bulkers Officer of the Watch, or OOW, was accompanied by an AB as lookout with steering in autopilot. The OOW sighted a vessel approximately one point on the starboard bow. The vessel was observed on the radar at a range of five nautical miles. The radar target was acquired by ARPA which indicated that the other vessel was crossing slowly and on a steady bearing as to involve risk of collision. The target vessel was small and brightly lit and the OOW identified it as a fishing vessel. When the fishing vessel was at a range of about 1.5 nautical miles, the OOW altered his vessels course 22 degrees to starboard. He attempted to alert the fishing vessel using the bridge signal lamp. Shortly after the bulker altered course, the fishing vessel also altered course so as to cross from port to starboard. After observing the fishing vessel's course change the OOW altered the bulkers course again to port, to its original heading. The fishing vessel was very close on the starboard bow and altered course yet again which caused it to collide with the bulkers starboard side.
