Q:I want to mark a deep channel so that it is obvious in low water conditions. My question is, how do you "install" these buoys in the lake so they remain in the same position? Also, is there a way to install so they go up and down with water levels? Thanks.Asked on 3/8/2015 by newbieboater
A:The most common anchor for buoys is a pair of concrete building blocks.
With minimal fluctuation, the recommended method is to anchor sub-buoys about three feet below the surface and attach the surface buoys to them with about a foot and a half of some type of elastic (shock cord). The elastic keeps the anchor line taut and the buoy directly over the anchor and allows for a 6 to 12 inch variation in water level. On reservoirs, tidal bays and other waters which experience fairly substantial water level variations, it may be necessary to equip each buoy with a counterweight to keep the anchor line tight.Answered on 3/9/2015 by Anonymous
