Description

Port and Starboard Nautical Lights Our Brass Port & Starboard lamps are working modern reproduction of the traditional port and starboard ships lights. Traditional ships lantern are as perfect for display or decorating your den as they are functional on a marine vessel. The solid brass emits a natural shine and really gives these lanterns a modern feel. Because of the rules of the sea, ships traveling towards each other know that their Red or port light should pass the oncoming vessel on the port side which has the visible red light. Ships pass oncoming vessels in a port to port manner. This prevents confusion should either ship’s navigator steer a sharp turn to the side. The green light is used on the starboard side and simply means that the ships do not pass starboard to starboard when they approach each other. In the unusual circumstance that craft will pass starboard to starboard, the craft desiring to pass starboard to starboard will signal the approaching craft with two blasts of its horn. The other craft will acknowledge the signal with two return blasts. The craft will then pass starboard to starboard. If not acknowledged for whatever reason, the craft requesting the starboard to starboard pass becomes the “give way” craft and should maneuver to avoid collision. Our Port and Starboard Brass Ships Lantern can also be mounted anywhere, all hardware needed is included in the box 2 lamps per box – one starboard lamp, one port lamp
