to  reporting  all  objects  behind  the  ship,  the  after lookout   is   responsible   for   throwing   overboard   a lifebuoy promptly when a person falls over the side. When  you  are  on  lookout  watch,  always  report everything you see or hear. Trash in the water may seem unimportant to you, but it may indicate a vessel has passed that way. In wartime, such a disclosure could lead to the sinking of the vessel. Discolored water may mean the ship is entering a shoal area.

Lookout  Duties  and  Responsibilities As   a   lookout,   your   primary   responsibility   is sighting, identifying, and accurately reporting to the responsible  authority  all  objects.  To  carry  out  this responsibility  effectively,  you  must  do  the  following: 1. Use correct scanning procedures. 2. Sight and report everything observed in your sector. A normal tendency is to hesitate until you are 4
