Sur-Moor mooring buoys are filled with EPS foam to positively displace water. Reflective blue stripe for night visibility. Hot dipped galvanized steel for corrosion resistance. Sur-Moor Mooring buoys are available in 12, 15, 18, and 24 inch diameter.
WARNING - Mooring lines must never be tied to the top loop. Mooring lines should always be attached to the anchor chain.

The sole purpose of the mooring buoy is to support the mooring chain. The two preferred designs for mooring buoys are a traditional buoy with hardware or a buoy with a tube through the center. Both offer reliable flotation and will last for several seasons, depending upon the salinity of the water. Obviously, freshwater applications will extend the useful life of any mooring system.
A permanent mooring system, when properly designed, should securely position a boat so that it can be left unattended, with little attention, for long periods of time. Each system usually consists of a mooring buoy (to float the chain), a mooring anchor and a length of chain (running between the anchor and the mooring buoy). Also the proper ground tackle includes correct sized galvanized shackles and swivels.
Always keep in mind, that the mooring system is only as reliable as the current conditions of the environment. All Taylor*Made Sur-Moor Buoys are built to withstand the constant abuse of most mooring environments.
