racing marks

For racing buoys on short courses you might try large white fenders ballasted with suitable lengths of chain forming the upper part of their rodes. An alternative is 20-inch diameter orange fenders or even large plastic beach balls from Target,K-Mart or some such. In our club we fabricate buoys from 8-foot lengths of 10-inch PVC pipe we get as scrap from local sewer contractors. They are ballasted with concrete and filled with scrap styrofoam and are pretty substantial. They remain on station year around on 200-pound concrete anchors on Puget Sound. Regards, Geroge
