Bye bye!

The US Coast Guard removed its nine buoys – federally maintained “ATONs” or aids to navigation – from Milton Harbor on Monday. In turn, the City of Rye hired McCauley Mooring and Diving Services of Larchmont, and they installed private ATONs on Monday.

The private aids will remain until the City completes a dredging project of both Milton Harbor and the boat basin, a multi-million dollar undertaking.

Take a look at the USCG removal and the new private buoys*:

*Updated June 8th, 11am: The new buoys are similar in size to the Coast Guard buoys. We previously said they were smaller. We regret the error.
