Get a chart. Look at the entrance to Linekin Bay. It is near BoothBay Harbor. It is simply a ledge in the middle of the entrance to a bay. How else are you going to mark it? The Coast Guard has to assume a minimal level of intelligence and knowledge from boaters. There are no other buoys anywhere near. It is safe to round either end of the ledge. Yet a minimally competent boater that automatically thinks you have to go between two different colored buoys and never looks at a chart will have a problem. (This describes many local motorboaters here on the south shore of Long Island. Fortunately the bottoms around here are mud and sand.)
