the buoy does two jobs.
1. If the buoy line is the correct length with the tidal height added in, it will mark about where your anchor is at and reasonbly smart people won't plant their anchor over the top of your anchor rode.
2. If the buoy line is strong enough, it can be used to haul your anchor back out of the bottom.
