What does that symbol mean?
How many of you can look at an image like the one below, either on paper or electronically, and explain what every item on the chart represents? I freely admit that from time to time I come across things that I’m not familiar with. In fact, just the other day I had to research what something meant.
Where do you go to look up what the symbols mean? The answer is NOAA’s Chart No. 1 publication. We keep a copy of this book in our library on board our boat, and I think that everyone could benefit from doing the same. The good news is that if you don’t want to buy the book, you can download a PDF version of it for free! Just some light Sunday afternoon reading for you. 🙂
