Over the years, we have lost several buoys due to rough waters and week metal. This one seems very sturdy and is a little different than those we have had in the past. Hoping it will last.

If you know how to construct a mooring then you should know what hardware is needed. I prefer the tube-thru-center buoys so that I can attach my pendant to the top of the buoy, rather than the bottom. As you should for non-T3C buoys. These are so strong that the ice carried away my last one along with a 100 pound mushroom anchor attached! Reminder, use a winter stick in the winter!

You need to buy the chafe collars that are required for a proper installation, they are not included with the buoy.

I ordered this buoy to replace one whose hardware had rusted away. The ad/specifications were confusing as to whether or what hardware was included: "includes a ring for retrieval...", "only hardware included is a chain...". "no hardware is included...". It seemed inconceivable to me that there would be nothing on it, especially since there was no info telling how to order the necessary hardware separately. If I was going to purchase hardware from a marine supply store I might as well have picked up the whole thing there!
