D

NOTE: so far in this course you have only been exposed to the Inland Rules of the Road and International Rules of the Road which are the same.

The minimum length of a power-driven vessel that must show forward and after masthead lights is….

A) 30 meters
B) 50 meters
C) 75 meters
D) 100 meters

B

NOTE: Vessels less than 50 meters have the option to display a second masthead light. The advantage of using two masthead lights is that if two vessels are approaching head-on or nearly head-on, the alignment of the two masthead lights will help the lookout quickly determine whether the approaching vessel is maintaining a steady course.
