A new wreck it is; it is the newest buoy. I do not want to be on the receiving end of that one.

That is a great link.

jackdale What does this buoy designate?

Boasun To cut outside the buoys means to go out of the marked channel...
And I have found that some buoys are on the edge of a hard shoal and on one side you have nice deep water and on the other you are aground.
Sending a dinghy with a lead line would help... Or have someone in the bows to heave the lead line and take a reading... but be moving slowly, very very slowly. Crunch!!!
For instance; Galveston Harbor entrance... I have run just on the outside of the green line, but would NEVER run on the outside of the red line there... Thus leaving the channel for those very large ships and my 182 ft supply boat with a molicum of Safety. There is little water outside the red line. while I had twenty feet just outside the green line.

I'm not totally clear on the terminology. Does "to cut on the outside of the buoys" mean to keep a starboard-hand buoy to port or a port-hand buoy to starboard?

I guess I would have to say no, unless I were in an old-timey mood in which case I might secure anchorage elsewhere, and then send the launch in to take soundings, in which case sure I'll cut outside the buoys

The only time that I feel comfortable cutting a buoy is if I am very familiar with the area and I am racing. When I am instructing we follow the buoyage system.

Boasun Actually I have seen daymarks on the corners of buildings close to the water, trees, metal towers, concrete ruins and rock faces.
