Re: Navlights identification help

Balagans over 50 meters have to carry a range light too.

And the Balagan day shape--black, tattered, confusing, no specific shape

Re: Navlights identification help

I have a friend who is an unlimited tonnage Master Mariner. I will send the pic to him. He wil know if it is a real light configuration.

Re: Navlights identification help

Stay clear of all of them. Doesn't matter what they are. Maybe some of their lights are like their watchkeepers: off for the night. Take a bearing and keep out of their path.

If it looks like Christmas tree, keep clear.

Re: Navlights identification help

The only thing that makes sense for 68 would be a vessel engaged in mine sweeping with one light obscured - either that or a trick question.

Re: Navlights identification help

In that part of the world one would be well advised to show proper lights. Otherwise things will go "bang" in the night.

Re: Navlights identification help

The lights are 1 half of a pair minesweepers. The green light opposite to the other minesweeper is extinguished. From an old version of Cockcroft.

From the Broughtons.

Re: Navlights identification help

Having just wrapped up my Masters test I would recommend against using Wikipedia as a source for the Colregs and light identifiaction. West Marine publishes an outstanding quick reference guide that contains all the rules sof the road and light and sound patterns. Study the heck out of those and get the biggest (most questions) study guide you can (your school should provide that) and work through every single problem at least 3 times. Ask questions in class! If you do that you will have essentially memorized most of the kinds of questions you're likely to see on the exams and you'll breeze right through. Best of luck.
