Remember this is in the context of a 42' ketch. I am sure every commercial craft and any pleasure boat with a hired crew will have and use the day shapes. But go into any recreational anchorage (not a "designated" area) and count the anchor balls you see hoisted. Or go to a fishermans dock and count the baskets in the rigging of docked boats. In this area, actual practice differs greatly from the rule book.
