Quick Reference

US navigational aid in the IALA maritime buoyage system B, where red is the starboard-hand mark. It is red, even numbered, and shaped like a truncated cone, though some are pointed on top, and is the US equivalent of the conical green buoy used as the starboard-hand mark used in the IALA maritime buoyage system A.
