A place to turn the driving direction for vessels, where the boats are longer than the river/canal is wide.

How to map

Simply add a node node to the waterway at the point where boats can turn and add the tag waterway=turning_point to it.

If the turning point has a special name add it with name=*.

Add maxlength=* if there is a known length restriction for turning vessels.
