INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY, N.J. - A leaning Daybeacon is marked with a Temporary Lighted Buoy on the Intracoastal Waterway off of Ship Bottom, NJ. According to the United States Coast Guard, daybeacons are “aids to navigation, which are permanently fixed to the earth’s surface.” Since their inception in the 1800’s, these unassuming aids have safeguarded mariners from seafaring dangers.
