Help with tug navigation lights

I’m finishing the “Comenda” (Yorkshireman) Tugboat, but I need some help with the navigation lights.

This is a graphic with all the lights that I have to work with.

Tugboat “Comenda” (Yorkshireman) Length 138ft. (< 50m), beam 38ft, displacement 686 tons. Bollard pull is 70 tons.

I would like to be able to use 2 or 3 configurations of navigation lights, but I don’t know the place of the colours lights for the different configurations.

Please can you help me?

oops, that's the exact same boat FocalPoint has problems with (coz he just bought it). The lights shown on the boat are illegal to the international rules. The top (1st) light is red, the following 4 (going down) lights are yellow, and the last (top down masthead) light is red again.

Thank's to you all.

I think that these 2 images are correct.





I would like to know if I can use these lights in a tug.



What are the navigation lights when a tug is not towing?

Thank's in advance.
