Delaware River above Philadelphia -
The present publication covers the coast from Sandy Hook to Cape Henry. It includes the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays and tributaries, and the inside route from Delaware River to Chesapeake Bay and the inside coastal route from Delaware Bay to Cape Charles, Va. It is based mainly upon the work of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, including the results of a special examination in 1935 and 1936.
This volume covers the same territory as the first edition of Section C, excepting that the Inland Waterway along the coast of New Jersey, and the Delaware and Raritan Canal, New York Bay to the Delaware River, have been omitted, as the first named route is fully described in the United States Inside Route Pilot, New York to Key West, and the canal is no longer open to navigation.
Navigators and others are requested to notify the Director, United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, of any errors or omissions that may be found in this publication, or of any additional matter which they think should be inserted for the information of mariners.
Corrections and additions affecting Coast Pilot volumes are included in Notice to Mariners, published weekly by the United States Department of Commerce. The aids to navigation mentioned in this pilot are those effective, according to the latest available information, on December 30, 1936. A supplement, giving the more important changes to the text, is issued about a year after a Coast Pilot volume is published, and again at approximately yearly intervals thereafter until a revised edition appears. Each supplement is complete in itself and cancels all previous issues. The date of the latest supplement to each Coast Pilot is given in the list of Coast Pilots published quarterly in Notice to Mariners.
In using this volume reference should be made to the latest supplement and to Notices to Mariners issued subsequent to the volume or supplement and due regard should be given to the possibility of changes having occurred since the date of the latest of these publications. The supplement may be obtained, free of charge, upon application to the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, Washington, D. C., or to any of its Field Stations, or Sales Agents.
This edition was prepared by Lt. Comdr. Charles Shaw, United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, under the direction of Commander F. B. T. Siems, chief, coast pilot section. The United States Engineers, the United States Lighthouse Service and other authorities all cooperated in furnishing information.
R. S. PATTON, Director. DECEMBER 30, 1936.
