A boat used for :

  • carrying out repairs and maintenance to fixed aids to navigation
  • handling smaller buoys
  • relief of personnel and fuelling and provisioning of lighthouses and light vessels.

Note :

No special term exists for this in German, but the general term Seezeichenfahrzeug includes work barges used by the lighthouse services (See note to 8-1-000).

Please note that this is the term as it stands in the original IALA Dictionary edition (1970-1989)
