Changes to buoyage

Max Taylor, Deputy Harbour Master, informs us that during September Peel Ports will be commencing their first campaign of buoy changes. In the region of 15 navigation buoys will be changed and river users will note a “new shade” of green for starboard lateral marks and a larger top mark for both of the lateral marks. More importantly the cardinal marks will be slightly different, the “body” of the buoy is painted grey, then there is equidistant black/yellow banding to denote the type of cardinal followed by the traditional “shaped” topmark. Light characeristics will remain the same and Notices to Mariners will be issued prior to the work being done.
