It marks a new wreck.... btw a new one to me!
Here's a handy link... you did say open-book, right?
Lights, buoys - aids to navigation.

What does this buoy designate?

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 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

|Boasun||If you are feeling your way into an unknown port. (A lack of a proper chart here.) Would you feel comfortable to cut on the outside of the buoys??|

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

|Boasun||Does a Day Mark have to be on a piling or a spar??|
