Ours vs. Other's Features
I am having problems/questions with the navigation routes around Store Island and Chase/Farm Islands. I know black-top buoys are North-East buoys. Why do these black-top buoys have a navigation route that goes North-West? I am using an '88 chart.
Good questions. Yes, the navigation routes on Chase/Farm Island are correct. The navigation routes on the buoys at Store Island are also correct. Normally, boaters should go to the North-East of the black-top buoy, not North-West, although in a few cases, (Store and Chase/Farm Islands are two,) that is not the rule. Yes, you should always follow the navigation routes on the charts. Yes, that’s one of the places the boater has to check his chart before going on a boat trip. Trust the navigation routes on the chart. After all, the Marine Patrol has gone over and corrected the chart before each edition is printed!
