As someone else noted, black cones would be flown during the day & at night, green touching white means fishing at night. I've never seen these type of signals on a 6 pack charter or recreational boat therefore, IMHO they are the give way vessel.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!
