Under Inland Rules: Yellow over Yellow is pushing ahead
Under Colregs: Just a white stern light.

Under Both Rules: Yellow over White stern lights is for a tug towing astern.

Quite correct!

The original question had the vessel in Long Island Sound heading west bound south of New Haven, Ct. (i.e., US Inland Rules)

1.) The other vessel is stand on

2.) You shall not impede their passage, and avoid crossing ahead.
you should reverse engine and give way.

4.) The approaching vessel....should...Slow, and if in doubt of your actions alter their course to Starboard

Displayed with a green over white and two reds is a trawler. The two reds are indicating the nets have come upon an obstruction.
Just to clarify, I was saying that's how I tell trawlers from fishing vessels :P

OK - I haven't seen this one.



Right-click and show properties.

What action do you take?

BTW - the illustrations from this site are quite good.
