Yes, indeed.

we reckon it's a trawler whose nets have come fast upon an obstruction

just out of curiosity, are we talking about the same picture, the one of the orange commercial cabin rib as seen from the bow?....i keep refreshing the home page but seem to find every other picture except this one?

From memory though it looks like a pilot vessel....

Yes, indeed, it's Orange, with a cabin.
There's also a side shot of the same vessel.

I thought it was a pilot, but this strange red light popped up and I got all confused, I did!

So it's either a rib not under command, with running lights on, at 40 knts (SCARY THOUGHT!), or an orange fishing RIB with stuck nets (@40 knts :S)

I'm starting to think it's probably just a pilot boat with a red light fetish, really!

what you sometime's get is two reds either side of the mainmast so to give full 360degree coverage. i have seen it before when picking up a pilot that from certain angles especially from above, it looks like two reds showing under the white.

Although i still can not see the picture i'm guessing that it is probally this.

if it's th Parker rib on the front page then it was to display all lights while under going a sea trial if I remember Ostrada does post on here.Or ask Andre

If you want to learn about lights www.sailtrain.co.uk is another good site.
Also Rulemaster Pro cd rom is good .

Purely out of interest, why do they need 2 all round reds?

But thank you, sir. You've unconfused me (again!)

Yes!!! finally fell on the right picture just when i was'nt trying too....typical

Commercial vessel must have the ability to show 3 all round reds which indicates the vessel is limited in its ability to maneuver or constrained by it's draught.

There may be other reasons for having the reds but this the one which imediately springs to my mind......

From what i remember though, i thought this only applid for vessels above a set tonnage....but dont quote me on this as certain vessels like tugs etc....can show these also.
