U.S. Coast Guard Issues 2017 Light List

Posted by John K. Fulweiler | Jan 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

Want to be a prudent mariner? The trick is not relying on one navigational tool alone. That is, the chart, navigational aids and the U.S. Coast Guard's recently released Light List should all be used to safely navigate your craft from here to there. The USCG Light List comes out annually. You can access the 2017 Light List by clicking HERE. It's intended to provide additional information about aids to navigation than can be conveniently shown on charts. The Light List is not intended to be used in place of charts or Coast Pilots. And, of course, charts should be consulted for the location of all aids to navigation.

Navigating your vessel safely means you are avoiding situations that can lead to vessel collisions, maritime personal injuries and groundings. Boat safely by being a prudent mariner!
