Intracoastal Waterway Information The  Intracoastal  Waterway  (ICW)  is  a  largely  sheltered  waterway, suitable  for  year-round  use,  extending  some  2,400  miles  along  the Atlantic  and  Gulf  Coasts  of  the  United  States.  In  general,  it  follows natural  waterways. ATONs  along  the  ICW  have  some  portion  of  them  marked  with  yellow. Otherwise,  the  coloring  and  numbering  of  the  ATONs  follow  the  same system  as  that  in  other  U.S.  waterways. So  vessels  may  readily  follow  the  ICW,  special  markings  consisting  of yellow  triangles  and  squares  are  employed.  When  you  are  following  the ICW  from  the  north  along  the  Atlantic  Coast  and  west  along  the  Gulf Coast,  aids  displaying  yellow  triangles  should  be  kept  to  starboard;  those aids  displaying  yellow  squares  should  be  kept  to  port,  regardless  of  the color  of  the  aid  on  which  they  appear.  Nonlateral  aids  in  the  ICW,  such as  ranges,  safe-water,  and  other  nonlateral  daymarks,  will  be  identified by  the  addition  of  a  yellow  stripe  instead  of  a  triangle  or  square. The  conventional  direction  of  buoyage  in  the  ICW  is  generally  southerly along  the  Atlantic  Coast  and  generally  westerly  along  the  Gulf  Coast. Western  Rivers Aids  to  navigation  on  the  western  rivers  of  the  United  States--the Mississippi  River  and  its  tributaries  above  Baton  Rouge,  Louisiana,  and on  other  certain  rivers  that  flow  towards  the  Gulf  of  Mexico--are generally  similar  to  those  on  other  U.S.  waters,  but  there  are  a  few differences  that  should  be  noted  (see  fig.  4-17). ATONs  are  not  numbered.  Numbers  on  ATONs  do  not  have  lateral significance,  but  instead,  indicate  mileage  from  a  fixed  point. Diamond-shaped  crossing  daymarks,  red  or  green  as  appropriate,  are used  to  indicate  where  the  river  channel  crosses  from  one  bank  to another. Lights  on  green  aids  show  a  single  flash,  which  may  be  green  or  white. Lights  on  red  aids  show  a  double  flash,  which  may  be  red  or  white. Isolated  danger  marks  are  not  used. This  concludes  or  discussion  on  ATONs  and  the  buoyage  system.  We now  have  information  on  the  road  signs  of  the  nautical  road.  We  can now  take  a  look  at  the  traffic  laws,  or  as  they  are  known,  the  Rules  of the Road. 4-37
