Notice to Mariners
Hudson River – Troy
May 10, 2017
Mariners are advised that the white danger buoys stationed downstream of the dam at the Troy Federal Lock have been reported located south of their stations. Mariners are also advised that due to high water levels and high current buoy G “231” at the downstream entrance of the lock is mostly submerged. This is a steel buoy and so is potentially more hazardous than a submerged foam buoy. Mariners approaching the Troy Federal Lock are cautioned to do so with extreme caution. Lower powered vessels may find maneuvering particularly difficult.
