Buoy Identification - 14221_124
Buoys,  Continued Types of Buoys Whistle  buoys  are  similar  to  bell  buoys  except  they  carry  a  whistle sounded  by  the  sea’s  motion  or  a  horn  that  is  sounded  at  regular intervals  by  electrical  means. Lighted  buoys  (fig.  4-12)  carry  batteries  and  are  surmounted  by  a framework  supporting  a  light.  The  framework  has  no  navigational significance,  it  simply  supports  the  light  and  sound  equipment.  Many lighted  buoys  carry  a  solar  panel  atop  the  light  to  recharge  the  battery during  daylight  hours. Combination  buoys  have  a  combined  light  and  sound  signal,  such  as  a lighted  bell,  gong,  or  whistle  buoy.  Some  of  the  most  important combination  buoys  also  carry  a  RACON. Large Navigational Buoys Large  navigational  buoys  (LNBs)  are  disc-shaped  buoys  that  may  be  as large  as  40  feet  in  diameter. LNBs  provide  a  platform  for  a  light,  fog  signal,  radiobeacon,  and meteorological  sensors  that  transmit  data  ashore.  LNBs  were  developed primarily  to  replace  manned  lightships  and  light  towers. They  are  normally  stationed  many  miles  from  shore  and  are  moved  from time  to  time.  Special  attention  must  be  paid  to  these  buoys  when  laying coastal  and  open  ocean  tracks. 4-25
