Members of the DRYL member clubs and individual
recreational boaters have responded, en mass, to a
recent Notice to Mariners “PROPOSAL TO DISCONTINUE AIDS
TO NAVIGATION (A to N)” concerning the Bordentown
Bar Junction Buoy B (LLNR 4230)” in the vicinity of
Bordentown, NJ with the following results.
Re: Local Notice to Mariners article "NJ - UPPER
DELAWARE RIVER - PHILADELPHIA TO TRENTON- PROPOSAL TO
DISCONTINUE AIDS TO NAVIGATION" initially published in
the 5th Coast Guard District Local Notice to Mariners
39/13. This update is being sent in response to the
“Discontinuation Notice of the Bordentown Bar Junction
Buoy B (LLNR 4230)”
“Based on feedback from no less than 40 waterway
users, the position and seasonal maintenance dates of
Bordentown Bar Junction BuoyB mark the Upper Delaware
River Channel adequately. The adjacent waterways, which
are not marked with Federal A to N, provide access to
boating clubs (Bordentown Y.C. & Yapewi Aquatic Club)
and a public boat ramp. Hundreds of recreational
boaters operating outside the marked channel boundaries
regularly rely on Bordentown Bar Junction Buoy B (LLNR
4230) to access BYC & YAC and navigate in the vicinity
of a charted sandbar and transit under I-295.”
“The evaluation of Bordentown Bar Junction Buoy
B (LLNR 4230) is part of a large-scale waterway
evaluation in support of modernizing local Coast Guard A
to N servicing units' capabilities”.
“Thus, to conform to Commandant’s lateral marking
requirements, to maintain the conventional direction of
buoyage and to continue to mark the sandbar obstruction,
a solid colored lateral Aid to Navigation will be
established on the approximate former position of the
junction buoy on or about 05 May 2014. This aid
will be a solid Red Nun and be named Upper Delaware
River Channel Buoy 86 (LLNR 4230)”.

Members of the Anchor Yacht Club in
Bristol handle a defense obstacle used by American
troops during the Revolutionary War. The 28-foot-long
wooden spear is known as a cheval de frise and is
equipped with a sharp iron tip used to puncture the
bottom of British war ships. According to historians, it
is one of only four that have been recovered.
UPDATE: It has finally
found a home and has made its way to East Carolina
University where it will be put on display.
Boating Safety: Tragic
Incident, Lessons Learned?
A recent article in the Phila. Inquirer, July 29th.
edition, reported on a boating accident in the
Hudson River, north of NYC where a power boat, 21 ft.
Stingray, crashed into an anchored barge(with lights).
Several of the boat’s occupants died as a result of
their injuries, recovered persons were not wearing PFDs.
With the Delaware shipping channel being deepened,
the use of working vessels could be hazardous to
recreational boaters operating their vessels in the
vicinity of Marcus Hook, PA. and south, especially at
night. Caution is advised in that area!!
