Well thats always the fear and to be honest you just need to keep a sharp look out, I find that you need to remove the glare from instruments as they just ruin any night vision you will have. With a combination of watching the chart plotter for any obvious obstructions and a constant scan in front you will spot the odd lobster pot.
What I find more confusing and quite an art is tracking large shipping, all you can see are the nag lights and I do not have the experience to know if its moving towards/away from you. Interesting though trying to figure it out
