I suppose it depends on how big your buoy is. Ours is a cork. Its pull is neglible. After switching to a Mason Supreme anchor, I can sleep well at night after a good set on very little scope in benign conditions. The bugger is hard to break out of the mud without using the boat's momentum, so an underwater buoy wouldn't concern me. (P.S., I don't sleep on a 1 to 1 scope, but I think I could in the right conditions)
