    ๐Ÿ˜ŽHi Guys I usually Google the COLREGS for that era of ship for the correct lights, colours, positions and correct combination for that vessels specific duties. They all have a specific message to other vessels, they definitely are not Christmas Trees like some I see at shows.
    Happy lighting

    As a toddler, before WW2, my father was a merchant navy officer studying for his various tickets to become a Master Mariner. Much of the Rule of the Road at Sea, use of various lights etc, he had to be able to repeat parrot fashion for the oral Examination. My mother used to sit hour after hour testing him on these. Consequently, by the time I was six, I had learnt all this as well. He had also taught me to splice rope and all the common knots, but that's going off the subject.

    No sweat Rossiter ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Comes from 30+ years of surveying ships and studying GA drawings to design comms systems to fit! In particular designing the best compromise for the antenna system was tricky, so I had to get to know the construction of the ship and the placement of other equipment.
    Was a lot a fun (sometimes!๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    Hi Rossiter,
    Generally for ALL ships mast and stern running lights are white. Mast top 'Anchored' light white.
    Mast top 360ยฐ omnidirectional, running lights mast (facing forward) and stern max 180ยฐ.
    Other mast lights are specific to the type of ship and it's function, e.g. tugs with yellow 'Towing' light facing aft. Hope this helps (instead of adding to confusion๐Ÿ˜ฎ)
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I am refurbishing a Mountfleet C642 Admiralty Coaster, circa 1946.
    Could someone tell me what colour the mast and stern lights would be please, I don't want to get them wrong and I can't find a picture that shows the models lights other than port and starboard of course.
    Thank you in anticipation.
