Rhode River R6

The daymark, R6 in the Rhode River appears to have been struck. It has been replaced with a red nun, equipped with flashing light, at an interval of 2 seconds.

The original daymark piling is nearly horizontal, and mostly submerged, but appears to still be solidly attached to the river bottom. Use caution when transiting the area.

For those unfamiliar with the area, there were two unlit daymarks, R4 and R6 placed very close to each other, to guide mariners around a shoal, at the entrance to Cadle Creek in the Rhode River.

I suspect that someone was taken by surprise, at night, when they discovered two daymarks so close to each other.

I just thought I'd share this, because there are two coves in the Rhode that are popular anchorages during the summer, and because the SSCA holds a gam there, annually.

Re: Rhode River R6

Thank you for that update. I have sailed the Bay for over 30 years now. I do not recall seeing marks hit very often, but for some reason in the past 4-5 years I have seen a bunch of them hit, and hit at high enough speed to bend over a steel pipe or beam.
