How does Corp establish the sail line

I am trying to find the regulations or guidelines that the Corp of Engineers uses to determine where it draws the sail line on inland waterway charts. Any help appreciated.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is "the sail line". I don't think I've ever heard of that.

"Corps" of Engineers with an "s".

Sorry, this has bothered me for a long time. They're not incorprated, they are Corps in the military sense. French derived from Latin for "corpus" or "Body"

Go ahead hit me hard now - I swear I'm not a geek or an english major.

I just can't help myself

Sail Line

Best I can find is that a "sail line" is planned course to be navigated with reference to a specific geographic location. The only place I saw the term being used was in sites used by agencies and organizations involved in mapping or sounding ocean depths. The sail lines refered to their planned rastor pattern to cover areas pf the ocean floor

GShanks -
Are you asking about what guidlines the USACE determines where the "center of a channel will be loctaed?
