Strip Chart with Buoys, etc. - This is a sample of a strip chart which shows Porthand Buoys, Starboardhand Buoys, etc.

NOTES: The arrow circled in blue is an Upstream Marker and shows you which direction is Upstream. The red triangle circled in yellow is a Starboardhard Daybeacon; it's on land, probably on a rock, and means you need to keep it to the right side of your boat as you're passing upstream. The item circled in pink is an example of a Maximum Speed marker.
