Question

I am mooring a 21 foot 2000 lbs pontoon in 5 feet of fresh water, can I use the T3C mooring buoy as part of the mooring line or do I have to schackle to the chain under the buoy?

Asked on 03/21/2014 by Paul Domaas

Top Answer

The idea with this Buoy is the chain runs through it to a ring at the top, so you can connect from the top of the buoy, rather than under to buoy like others that have a grab ring on top. I bought the recommended galvanized sleeve so the ring at the end of the chain does not chafe the buoy but this is probably overkill.

Answer

Agree with "Steve P" (the second reply). The point of the T3C is to attach your chain thru the tube to a 4" ring at the top. Then tie off your pendants to the ring. No worries about lines getting twisted under the buoy. I didn't get the extra sleeve. My last buoy lasted for years without one, until the ice carried it away. You can always add the sleeve later if you notice damage to the tube.

Answer

Not sure how you're going to fix the mooring buoy to the chain my experience has been that if you don't use chain and a swivel that over the course of the summer the mooring line which I used 3/4 inch three strand nylon unravels. Having the mooring line come out the top of the mooring ball means that the ball topples over and retrieving the line is difficult

Question

Re T3C mooring collar, would it be beneficial to glue the collar to the mooring ball with 3M 5200? Would this create another problem? John

Hi John, this is going to be my third season with the T3C and the collars are very well secured to the mooring ball. in fax. I am required to have a bow and stern mooring, and they have held up both equally as well.

Answer

I used a clevise on the chain below the ball to keep the collar tight into the ball. I don't see any reason why you couldn't glue it in place though.

Question

does the taylor made sur-moor TC3 mooring buoy come with the 2.5 inch collar ?.

Top Answer

As far as i can tell the collar comes in 2" and 2 1/2" diameters. There is also a steel color that protects the buoy from chain wear at this point..

No, you need to purchase the collar separately.

Answer Question

Question

For a 12" buoy with 2" tube, (I already have mooring, 3/8" lower chain and swivel). 1. What size upper chain would you recommend for 17' sailboat? ¼ or 5/8"? 2. What type of shackle do you recommend for connection between anchor chain and pendant so that it sits nicely on top of the buoy?

Asked on 10/04/2020 by Mark V from NJ

Top Answer

Typically the top chain should not be smaller than 3/8". Use a 5/16 shackle with a bushing to protect the top of the mooring ball. The bushing is commonly a donut shape made out of a durable material such as high density polyethylene, StarBoard, or thick rubber. Mine was cut out of a tire.
