        Best Uses

        • As a boat marker
        • Great with anchor buddy

        Comments about Taylor Made Personal Watercraft Buoy:

        It worked great in the lake as a marker buoy for our boat. We tied it to our new Overton's Anchor Buddy! The marker buoy was very visible to other boats and it looked awesome with our Malibu boat. We are very pleased with it! The only ding I would give it would be for the color being a little more pink-red than red-red. Hopefully it won't fade into a pink color. Will keep you posted on that. Thanks Overton's!!

        • 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.

            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.
