[Rob]. Hey everybody its Rob Nelson here. Now if you have a boat and you’re going to go out at night, you need to make sure that you’re very familiar with how those lights work. You’ve got lights on the front, you’ve got lights on the back, sometimes lights on the side. And not only is it important for you to know your lights, you’ve got to know what those color combinations mean when you’re looking at another boat. So check out this little video clip.
[Female]. Navigation lights! Besides the obvious of helping boats see each other at night, each light plays a role in navigation. All boats use a white light when under power or anchored. Depending on the boat, this is either an all-around white light or separate mast head or Stern lights. And they are colored lights to. Those green and red sidelights on the bow or sides of the boat give us information about how to navigate around other boats. The red light indicates a boat port or left side, the green is the boat’s starboard or right side. If the red and green lights are not visible and we only see a white light, the boat is anchored or headed away from us.
