There shouldn't be any baskets in the rigging of any fishing boat. The baskets are no longer a day shape signal. Now it is two cones apexes together is the signal for fishing/trawling vessels. No matter the size of the vessel. This looks like a bow tie on its side.

But then it takes a lot of balls to run aground. Three of them that is...
So the count that we have to carry on the work boats is:
3 balls
1 diamond. two if you are a tug
1 cone for a sail boat
2 cones for fishing vessels
a halyard to hoist all of this stuff... Well for a max of three, hopefully ball, diamond, ball.

Oh! a square flag and a ball for distress. Like I am right now... hoping not to make any mistakes while putting this info out. Hate being caught in the wrong...Have to buy a round when I am.
