The ICW is marked separately from the lateral buoyage system and uses yellow markers IIRC.

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.

SD...RE: ICW....Well...they use RED triangular daymarks and Green square daymarks on the ICW and then they stick a square of YELLOW reflective tape on those to confirm that you are looking at an ICW marker and not some other channel marker. In general...the ICW is RED/Right heading south but there are several areas where this switches when it would otherwise conflict with incoming markers from seaward inlets. (Like around Hilton Head).

As far as I remembered the order of rules were: (System B)

1) Returning to port
2) With the Flood tide
3) Clockwise around North America

So, if not going into harbour or port and if there's no discernable tide, the third applies to decide which light should go where. Above definitely works for Canada in most circumstances. So, 1 trumps 2 which trumps 3.

Sounds like Darwinian theory playing itself out, although I don't much hold with Darwin. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go on to soundings without an adequate chart and a working knowledge of the local system of buoyage.

A friend of mine passed between a red/green pair a couple of years ago without thinking of which side the colours were on. The buoys marked a rock in the centre. Luckily, he only lost his prop (and a little dignity).

He wasn't in Maine, oh, say near Linekin Bay... or down in Massachusetts, up by Cape Ann...

"The buoys marked a rock in the centre."

Sometimes what you think is a buoy is simply bottom paint on a rock!

Alright, get your charts out. Try approaching Sturgeon Bay from Green Bay on Lake Mighigan. You must follow the channel markers leaving green to your starboard side.

I know the reason, but to the uninitiated it can seem pretty backwards.

T-
Because the channel runs from the Lake Side into the Bay, correct?
When going from the Bay into the Channel you are actually moving Upbound.
