Our Lass Two Lights
« on: April 06, 2015, 07:32:13 AM »

         I am currently building Our Lass Two and am fitting working lights. However, I am a little confused with the lighting sequence.
        Starting from the top of the foremast the order is

       Single White, two greens, two reds, two whites, two reds.

       I understand the saying "Green over White, fishing at night and Red over White trawling at night" I take it that the Greens and highest Reds would be used with the Whites for this, but when are the lowest Reds used. Also is the topmost White just used when at anchor?

        Can anyone help?

Check G and H in the diagram for fishing boats. Save to your desktop and enlarge with your photo viewer.

Thanks for the information. However, it does not show the reds below the whites, apart from the navigation lights.

Two possibilities come to mind:
Red
White
Red
for a vessel 'restricted in its ability to maneuver', for instance a warship launching or retrieving a helicopter; and

Red
Red
for a vessel 'not under command', for instance a vessel which has suffered a steering gear failure, or a main engine failure.

Neither specifically concerned with fishing. Hope this helps!

Yes, Tobias, you are right. That situation is described in Annex II to the Collision Regulations. It specifically refers to fishing vessels operating in close proximity.

I found an on-line resource: http://www.stormy.ca/marine/colregs/
No illustrations, but all the 'correct' terminology. :police:

Two reds denote net caught on obstruction.
