We have had two negatives with our anchor buoy. The first time, we had the anchor buoy catch under our keel and hold the boat on very short scope in high wind. We ended up dragging the anchor some as a result. The second time, a trawler caught their rudder on our anchor buoy and dragged us at 7kts through the anchorage. We let them keep the buoy.
