davidpm is on a distinguished road
In my defense the hand held chart plotter I have only showed the dotted circles and no numbers inside. I had no way of knowing the depth. I also had just started my shift and was a little groggy and surprised to see the bouy.
Like folks have said with the real chart the capt had apparently figured correctly that there was no problem. I had only seconds so changed course, better safe than sorry.
It woke me up quick thats for sure
