Default New buoy north of Five Mile Island

Bizer has been informed by an observant boater and also the Marine Patrol that a new buoy has been set about 200m north of light #57. It's approximate location is depicted by the circled buoy in the attached chart. Lieutenant Dunleavy of the Marine Patrol said that it marks a six-foot rock that could be hit by a deep-draft vessel when the water is low.

Bizer will not be able to get to Winnipesaukee for another few weeks. If anyone with a GPS is passing by this buoy, I'd appreciate a lat/lon reading. Either post it here or email me at newbuoy@bizer.com.

Thank you, MP, for keeping Bizer informed of changes.

If the rains don't come, I have feeling people are going to be finding a lot of new rocks this summer. Usually the water is only this low in the fall, when the boat population declines. If we go through the crowded months with near record low water, people will start finding all kinds of stuff.

No worries, mate...

The Lake communities will gladly spend the boat registration money they are hoarding to place some additional navigation aides. Afterall, the money is supposed to be sent to the Navigation Safety Fund, not their coffers.
