Lights: red over green masthead lights, sidelights, stern light
Diddy: "Red over Green" = sailing machine
20 meter cutoff length

4

Fishing vessels display what lights and what dayshape? What is the diddy for the lights?

Lights: red all-around light above a white all-around light, sidelights and a stern light
Dayshape: two cones with apexes together in vertical line (hourglass)
Diddy: "Red over White" = Fishing at night
Whether underway or at anchor

5

Trawling vessels display what lights and what dayshape? What is the diddy for the lights?

Lights: Green all-around light above a white all-around light
Dayshape: hourglass
Diddy: "Green over White" = trawling at night

6

Vessels not under command (not making way) display what lights and what dayshape? What is the diddy for the lights?

Lights: Red all around light over red all around light
Dayshape: two vertical black balls
Diddy: "Red over Red" = Captain is dead

10

Vessels constrained by draft may display what lights and what dayshape?

Lights: Red over Red over Red (in addition to normal power driven vessel lights)
Dayshape: cylinder in vertical line
Diddy: Constrained By Draft is three words
Three words = Three red lights

lights: Two all round red lights in a vertical line with a white light above overall
Dayshape: three balls in a vertical line
