Marine Lights Website - comments and suggestions welcome.

In less days than I care to think of - I have to take yet another RYA exam. Despite being a lowly PB2 instructor, I put my hands up and say that I cannot for the life of me remember all the lights that you might encounter.

I started making the light combinations on my PC and then realised that I could actually set up a web site with these images - and that might help other poor devils like me.

I've made a start today. My guess is that about 50% of it is now done. Its presently sitting on a sub-domain until I decide what to do with it.

Temporary Web Site

I'm no website designer as you can see if you go take a peep - but I would nevertheless appreciate comments from forum-members that may help anyone else whose memory is as bad as mine!

I've only done a couple of "quiz" items as I'm not sure yet how I am going to do that section.

Thanks in advance for any assistance given.

Excellent idea! I don't know nearly enough stuff like this off the top of my head.

I did notice the tricolour is missing from the sailing page? Or am I being dim?

<edit> Yes I'm being dim-combined light=tricolour. For some reason I had it in my head that the white shone towards the bow. D'oh.

Codprawn's right about clarity. It's almost worth copying the pics into a small reference flipchart as they are so nice and clear.

vessel under 50m but over 20m side lights should be behind the mast head

Vessels under 20m side lights should be ahead of mast head.

other than that, very good
