However, very few sailboats would be going 30 MPH at night. Much of the fault for this accident is due to excessive speed on the part of the boaters. Furthermore, I am willing to bet that the old pier was marked on the charts to some degree or another—especially given that the pier is supposed to be 825' long.
While the pilings and such may not be lit, I seriously doubt that NOAA forgot to mark an 825' concrete fishing pier on the charts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
