I have just updated the Navigating to Anegada web page with the Anegada channel marker status as of today (November 9, 2014).

Highlights:
  • All channel markers are in place.
  • Outer channel marker lights are in service.
  • There are new green markers on the north side of the channel before the end.
  • There is a red and green marker beyond the innermost green marker, marking the channel to the ferry dock.
  • There is a green marker and a red marker that mark the channel from the innermost green entrance channel marker into the anchorage off the Anegada Reef Hotel.

Current channel marker positions:
Red entrance buoyN18 42.784 W64 23.651
Green entrance buoyN18 42.836 W64 23.671
Channel entrance, between buoysN18 42.798 W64 23.667

Awesome!

Now somebody needs to mark the entire inshore reef between Neptunes and ARH with a line of lighted 1-foot fluorescent orange buoys so people will stop running into it with their dingies. duh Mr. Green

I disagree! That would take away a lot of my entertainment at Neptune's Happy Hour...

Same here. We enjoy watching those sudden unplanned stops!

We did it on the first trip. The guy driving the dink decided he had to go back for smokes so when we left Neptunes he tried to cut across...I got to get out and pull the boat back to deeper water. I can't say if he ever really had looked at a chart in there or not.

I've definitely provided that entertainment for people myself. Probably 10 or 12 years ago with 8 or 9 people overloading a dink. Didn't stop us from coming in for drinks but at least I went around on the way back to the boat...

Pretty sure someone on my crew got the reef at the Last Resort on the same trip.

A single float (shoal) would probably do the trick

Probably not. Some knucklehead would try to use it for a mooring.
