To me the pics (though small) make perfect sense. The ship is on a port course and you can see the masts are separated in perspective with a direction away from you, so the AOB MUST be in between 90-180 port. A bit of experience is needed to guesstimate the course at about 130 deg (without seeing the map). I had trouble with this too and started using the sub buddy app which you can use to train yourself in the AOB. I now rarely have more then 5 deg difference from the real course.

BTW: don't use the perspective from the target. Just use your common geometric sense which you learn at school to estimate the angle from your own viewpoint.
