Placed on shore or marine sites, private aids to navigation (PATON) assist mariners in safe navigation, marking limits of navigable channels, or warning of dangers or obstructions to navigation.
They can be shoreside beacons or day marks, simple “No Wake Zone” buoys or large lighted buoys, all requiring U.S. Coast Guard approval and inspection.
We have worked with port authorities, local municipalities, yacht clubs, and private residences to provide (aids to navigation) proper marking of channels, docks, approaches, no wake areas, and obstructions. We have over 20 years experience working with the U.S. Coast Guard and the PATON program.
