actually a Pilot boat is only a POWER DRIVEN VESSEL, No special rules for it.
But When it is being towed or is aground it no longer a Pilot boat persay.

It does have a unique fog signature. Four shorts after any other legal fog signal.

4 shorts is Morse Code for the letter 'Hotel'. And when a ship has a pilot onboard they fly the 'Hotel' flag from its yardarm.

3. Signals for purse seiners

Vessels engaged in fishing with purse seine gear may exhibit two yellow lights in a vertical line. These lights shall flash alternately every second and with equal light and occultation duration. These lights may be exhibited only when the vessel is hampered by its fishing gear.

You the man!

As for the vessel being pushed that apparently applies in the long island sound too.

In short any light is probably not good.
A flashing light is probably even less good
and a flashing moving light is the wost of all.

davidpm In general flashing lights are for navigation aids.
I knew of of the blue flashing light for police boats and Yellow for submarines.
Captain Peter from this forum pointed out to Brad and I a much more likely to be seen flashing yellow light on Long Island Sound. This caused me to do a search and I found 7 places in the COLREGS where a flashing light is called for.

1. What is the one most likely to be seen on Long Island Sound?
2. What are all 7 reasons you may see a flashing light that is required by COLREGS?
3. Is seven the total number?

Boasun actually I was looking for:
A Vessel, Restricted in Maneuverability, working while at anchor will sound One prolong and two short every two minutes.
A Fishing vessel that is fishing while at anchor shall sound one prolong and two short every two minutes.
These are the two exceptions that I was looking for... but yours is a good reminder that there are other nuances to the rules.
