Liverpool Bay, Crosby Channel Cardinal Marker C11
A cardinal mark is a sea mark (a buoy or other floating or fixed structure) used in maritime pilotage to indicate the position of a hazard and the direction of safe water. The direction of its two conical top-marks indicates the safest side to pass. In this case, the upper cone is pointing upwards and the lower cone is pointing down which indicates that ships should pass on the east side of the buoy LinkExternal link (Cardinal Mark, Wikipedia).
