    • D.

      Vessel Constrained by her Draft

    • E.

      Vessel Aground

    Correct Answer
    D. Vessel Constrained by her Draft
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Vessel Constrained by her Draft." This means that the vessel is restricted in its ability to maneuver because it has a limited depth due to its draft. A vessel's draft refers to the distance between the waterline and the lowest point of the vessel's hull. When a vessel is constrained by its draft, it cannot navigate in areas where the water is too shallow for its draft, limiting its maneuverability.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    What does the day signal shown tell us about the vessel?

    • A.

      Power Driven Vessel Underway

    • B.

      Vessel engaged In Towing

    • C.

      Vessel Underway, Not Making Way

    • D.

      Vessel Engaged in Trawling

    Correct Answer
    A. Power Driven Vessel Underway
    Explanation
    The day signal shown indicates that the vessel is a power-driven vessel underway. In maritime signaling, specific flags or signals communicate different statuses or activities of vessels to other vessels and navigators. The signal shown typically represents a vessel propelled by machinery and actively navigating through the water, as opposed to being at anchor, aground, or engaged in specific activities like towing or trawling. Therefore, the correct interpretation of the signal shown is that it signifies a power-driven vessel underway.

    Please Review Rule 26 And Fill In The Blanks: (c) A vessel engaged in fishing, other than trawling, shall exhibit: (i) two all-round lights in a vertical line, the upper being red and the lower white, or a shape consisting of two cones with apexes together in a vertical line one above the other; (ii) when there is outlying gear extending more than 150 metres horizontally from the vessel, an all round white light or a ________ upwards in the direction of the gear; (iii) when making way through the water, in addition to the lights prescribed in this paragraph, sidelights and a sternlight.

    • A.

      Cylinder

    • B.

      Diamond

    • C.

      Cone

    • D.

      Star

    Correct Answer
    C. Cone
    Explanation
    A vessel engaged in fishing, other than trawling, is required to exhibit two all-round lights in a vertical line, with the upper light being red and the lower light being white. Alternatively, the vessel can display a shape consisting of two cones with apexes together in a vertical line. Additionally, when there is outlying gear extending more than 150 meters horizontally from the vessel, the vessel must display an all-round white light or a cone pointing upwards in the direction of the gear. Therefore, the correct answer is "Cone" as it represents the required light or shape to be displayed in this situation.
