Trawling (Obstructed)

Please note that these lights below are exactly the same as the ”Trawling not making way” lights but with the addition of two all-round red lights indicating “net stuck fast to an obstruction”.

In the example below, the assumption is that these extra two white all-round red lights are on the port side of the trawler.

Vessel engaged in trawling and with the net fast to an obstruction, stern view.

Memory Aids - spending time on a trawler for days on end would be bound to make you go a sickly GREEN sea-sick colour.  Hence - add a Green light to the normal powered vessel.

The two
REDS are like two RED traffic lights - “STOP STOP!” as they are stuck fast..
