What happens when a Royal Navy warship sees a NATO task force headed straight for it? A crash course in Morse

After you. No, after you!

I had a friend who described an at sea encounter similar to the one described in the article. The other ship had the right of way, so my friends ship altered course. The other ship altered course at the same time putting them on conflicting courses again. This happened several times before they were able to get on safely passing courses. Sometime being helpful can cause more problems.
