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.

Since nobody does it--that makes it ok???

Have you ever tried to tell the Highway Patrolman that everybody else is speeding so it's ok for me too? How well did that work?

Remember, ignorance of the law is not an excuse to violate the law. So when you get boarded and cited--no whining!

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.

You will decide on what you need. And if doubt check with the USCG Aux. They are usually very helpful about what is needed on board your vessel.
And an inspection sticker from them will show that you have passed the inspection for this year.

Boasun-

IIRC, the dayshapes are supposed to be hoisted vertically in-line with each other in most cases, so a single halyard should be all that is needed.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
