Distinguishing Features :
Recommended tracks include all channels recommended for hydrographic reasons to lead safely between shoal depths. The use of such tracks is generally left to the discretion of the mariner and will depend on the vessel's draught, the state of the tide, adequacy of navigational aids and so on (IHO Chart Specifications, M-4). The recommended track is that portion of a 'navigation line' that a ship should use for navigation. In the case of a two-way recommended track only one value of orientation is encoded; the other value can be deduced (that is, the value encoded + 180 degrees).
