Keeping watch on a merchantman is a bit more than looking out the window. They could just, perhaps, maybe, possibly, combine that with answering the VHF when I try to call them to tell them that winds are light and my motor's down and I am in the last 80 miles of a 2700 mile trip from Bermuda and I am not quite sure if they have seen me and that their navigation lights look like they are going to run into me and they show no sign of having noticed.

There were 3 on board my ship.
