Greetings,
A seems like the only logical answer but what if you can't make radio contact? B leaves you open for the vessel that has the right of way to swerve into you. C suggests imminent danger. What about the, and I can't remember the proper horn signal...one or two blasts?

It's two short blasts; then wait for an acknowledgement 2 short blasts from the boat being overtaken. If they don't answer radio or whistle signal, cautiously begin the overtake, ready for 5 short blasts if you have stumbled upon a channel hog. They do exist.

I'd first sound the appropriate sound signal. Of the above limited options, I'd go for A.
