Catawba Island Lighted Buoy 1 to be discontinued

Editor’s note: In the May 22 edition of The Beacon, it was printed that the Catawba Marker Buoy off the northeast corner of Catawba Island was up for review to be removed. I was contacted by Doug Sharp of the United States Coast Guard correcting this information:

The buoy that the US Coast Guard is advertising to permanently discontinue is called Catawba Island Lighted Buoy 1. It can be found in Volume VII of the Great Lakes Light List. The buoys list number is 5835.

The buoy is located one half mile west of Moore Point on the west shore of Catawba Island. On the above map the buoy to be discontinued is circled in orange.
