I will read up on what is mappable currently and compare to features I have seen that are mappable - all of these little towns have similar infrastructure for many 10m fishing boats, and additional infrastructure for larger 20-30m boats in some places. 

The one thing I need to check on is... a boat "pull-out" area. It is not a dock/pier and not a boat launch. Launches are for cars to get boats off their trailer, and mappable for people to know where to take their boat to get it into/out of a body of water. These pull-out areas are long stretches of (concrete) shoreline dedicated to pulling small and medium sized boats out of the water for parking /maintenance for smaller little boats. I'm sure in other countries where there is less infrastructure, this is just a beach or shoreline, but these are purpose-built and dedicated features. Maybe there is an existing key, but this is a common feature for tiny fishing villages I would like to map, like this one (my picture). 


I know these are small things for small villages, and mapping for a big intermodal container ports is more important, but there are more of these little places to map overall.
