Supply, Control,  and  Telltale  Panel
Figure  2-14.—  Steering  control  console. The second masthead light, also a 225° white light, is mounted on the mainmast or the forepart of any ship 50 meters in length or longer, but at least 4.5 meters higher  than  the  masthead  light. Port and starboard side lights are 112 1/2° lights (fig. 2-16, view B) on the respective sides of the ship. They show red to port, green to starboard, and are invisible across the bow. The fixtures are spraytight, and each is equipped with an inboard screen arranged to throw the light from right ahead to 22.5° abaft the beam, port  and  starboard. The stern light is a 135° white light (view C) located on the stem of the vessel. It is a watertight fixture and is equipped with an inboard screen to show an unbroken light over an arc of the horizon of 135°, that is, from dead astern to 67.5° on each side of the ship. The supply, control, and telltale panel for the running lights is a non-watertight, sheet steel cabinet designed  for  bulkhead  mounting  (fig.  2-17).  This  panel is located in the pilothouse. It affords an audible and visible signal when the primary filament burns out in any one of the five running lights. At the same time, the panel  switches  automatically  to  the  secondary  filament so that the defective light remains in service. A master control  switch  with  an  indicator  light  is  also  located  on the running light supply, control, and telltale panel. SIGNAL  LIGHTS Signal lights installed on combatant ships usually include (1) aircraft warning lights, (2) blinker lights, (3) breakdown and man-overboard lights, (4) steering light, (5) stem light (blue), (6) wake light, and (7) speed 2-12
