- Additional Information
The rope nest design has a built in cup shape at the top of the buoy that allows the anchor shackle to nest below the buoy surface. This recessed area helps shield the shackle from contacting the boat hull while making a convenient nesting place for the pennant line when the boat departs from the mooring. The hard-skin polyethylene shell is UV protected to resist the weathering effects of sunlight and is foam filled to positively displace water. Tube-Through-The-Center design with blue reflective striping. Hardware not included.
|Sur-Moor™ Buoy Mooring Systems
The sole purpose of the mooring buoy is to support the mooring chain. The two preferred designs for mooring buoys are a traditional buoy with hardware or a buoy with a tube through the center. Both offer reliable flotation and will last for several seasons, depending upon the salinity of the water. Obviously, freshwater applications will extend the useful life of any mooring system. A permanent mooring system, when properly designed, should securely position a boat so that it can be left unattended, with little attention, for long periods of time. Each system usually consists of a mooring buoy (to float the chain), a mooring anchor and a length of chain (running between the anchor and the mooring buoy). Also the proper ground tackle includes correct sized galvanized shackles and swivels. Always keep in mind, that the mooring system is only as reliable as the current conditions of the environment. All Taylor*Made Sur-Moor™ Buoys are built to withstand the constant abuse of most mooring environments.
