A Safe Water Mark, also sometimes known as a Fairway Buoy, is used in maritime pilotage to indicate the end of a channel; it usually implies that open, deep and safe water lies ahead. They are recognisable by their red and white vertical stripes and commonly bear a top-sign in shape of a red ball.

The Belfast Fairway is charted at 5442.32N 542.30W (LinkExternal link Sailing Almanac).
