Answer to last week’s quiz

11 March, 2021

          a)                          b)                              c)                         d)

Symbol c) is the only one where the wreck is considered not dangerous to surface navigation. The depth above the wreck is unknown or water depth is greater than 200m.
Symbol d) may be o.k. depending on the depth shown which, in this case, would have been obtained by soundings only.
b) is the symbol for a wreck where the masts only are visible at chart datum. They may be therefore not always visible.
Symbol a) shows a wreck where the depth is unknown and considered a danger to surface vessels.
a), b) and d) are the dodgy ones and should therefore be avoided. As a rough guide, anything with a dotted line/circle surrounding it is dangerous.
