Remarks : Cardinal marks are used in conjunction with the compass to indicate where a mariner will find safe navigable water.Cardinal marks do not have a distinctive shape but are normally pillar or spar. They are always painted in yellow and black horizontal bands and their distinctive double cone top-marks are always black. (Note that such top-marks are encoded as separate TOPMAR objects). Cardinal marks may also have a special system of flashing white lights and if such lights are fitted they are encoded as separate LIGHTS objects.
