Re: Lateral Marks

Also call BoatUS and ask for local knowledge.

But all this supposes you are in the USA. More interesting in out of the way places.

Re: Lateral Marks

Make that common in out of the way places. Put someone on the bow and watch depths closely. Don't go any faster than you're willing to hit something.

This is perhaps the best 24-word summary on the subject. Otherwise, it is best to have your insurance agent on your speed dial.

Re: Lateral Marks

"it marks the northernmost side of the "LIS channel". "
That last part "LIS channel" rubs me the wrong way. As the USCG will gladly confirm, if something isn't listed on the NOAA charts as a designated "Channel", then it ain't a channel. Anyone being ruthless about marks, ought to at least conform to the USCG nomenclature for what is and isn't a channel.

Re: Lateral Marks

Odd that nobody has mentioned bouys pulled out of location by passing log booms in dog leg passages. Usually 3 or 4 knots of current and I knew it (cardinal) had sunk as it was still partialy visible in the rock pile. ,For locals Enterprise Channel ,behind Trial Island.
