        We will use them on our personal watercraft when they are staked in the water to make boaters aware of them. They are small and don't take up a lot of space to carry to the lake.

          Comments about Gladiator Inflatable Slalom Buoys, 9" dia.:

          When we have a beach camp, we position the bow out into the water and attach the buoy to the anchor rope off the bow. This makes for a quick recovery and reattachment of the anchor when we return from a ski run.

            • Q:

              Are these buoys the same as the original Overtons slalom buoys?
              Last year I purchased yellow and red buoys .The yellow ones came as Overton buoys ,the red ones came as Gladiator bouys, which were much bigger and not as strong.Have they been redesigned or are they the same?

                A:

                They will be a little different than the older style Overton's, but they are still approved by the American Water Ski Association as a legal slalom buoy.
