Re: You are NOT "FISHING"

Where and how is “special anchorage” displayed on a chart? I’ve tried looking this up on chart #1 and couldn’t find anything. The anchor symbol is for a general anchorage. It can be preceded by an explosives, tanker, number, named, DW, quarantine, reserved, seaplane, or 24 hour symbol. There was no “special” symbol that I could find. Again, logic would dictate, unless a skipper decodes the Federal Register and knows exactly that he is in a “special anchorage” then he should be displaying the ball during the day and an anchor light at night. Just saying. I now yield the floor to my esteemed collogue, the Hon. Jackdale, Esq.
