If you see red green and white light on another boat what does this tell you?

The port side of a vessel carries a red light, whilst the starboard side carries a green one. A white light would be either in the centre to act as a headlight or extra illumination for the benefit of other vessels, or on the masthead to indicate the height of the boat.
