When you encounter a belly boat, for navigation purposes, which is port and which is starboard? Which is the bow and which the stern? I'm not sure who has to give way and which side to pass.

A belly boat is round, based on an inner tube.
But even in that boat, where is the bow? The pointy end, or behind him, in the direction of travel?

Depends on whether he's rowing or paddling.

He has no oars, so he's kicking, using flippers to move "backwards". So the question is, is he facing the bow? Or is he facing the stern?

I thought, hmm, I've operated under the traditional 3 R rule (red right returning) and in European waters where that would put you in a heap of trouble (reversed) and under Rhine Rules where things are sometimes reversed. But that one stumped me.

But I believe there's actually an answer. In a simplified nutshell; if he's motionless in the water you'd treat him as you would a rock. Pick a side and go by; if he's moving in any direction no matter whether he's facing one direction and moving in another direction, it's his direction of travel relative to you that comes into play. Basically, if he's on your right he has the right of way. Oh, and if he's unpowered and you are a power vessel he has absolute right of way.

Simple isn't it.
