DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE,
Washington, February 12, 1930. This publication covers the coast from Sandy Hook to Cape Henry, including the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays and tributaries, and the inside route from New York to Norfolk. It is based mainly upon the work of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, including the results of a special examination in 1929.
This volume covers the same territory as the first edition of Section C, excepting that the inland waterway along the coast of New Jersey has been omitted, as this route is fully described in the Inside Route Pilot, Coast of New Jersey. The present (third edition) has been prepared by G. D. Cowie, hydrographic and geodetic engineer, Coast and Geodetic Survey, under the direction of J. H. Hawley, chief, coast pilot section.
Valuable assistance has been rendered by the Lighthouse Service, the United States engineers, and local authorities in furnishing information for use in this volume.
The aids to navigation are corrected to February 12, 1930.
Navigators are requested to notify the Director, United States Coast and Geodetic Survey of any errors or omissions they may find in this publication, or of additional matter which they think should be inserted for the information of mariners.
R. S. PATTON, Director.
