Marker Buoy Sur-Mark II Model 425-R
Sur-Mark II marker buoys are made of tough UV-protected polyethylene. Their seamless design, internal concrete ballast, and recessed galvanized eyes make them suitable for marking channels, no-wake zones, swim zones, and other hazards.
Feature self-righting, internal ballast without requiring additional ballast. buoy stands upright for storage.
Boats Keep Out: A white buoy or sign with an orange diamond and cross means that boats must keep out of the area. Black lettering on the buoy or sign gives the reason for the restriction, for example, SWIM AREA.
Danger: A white buoy or sign with an orange diamond warns boaters of danger – rocks, dams, rapids, etc. The source of danger will also be lettered in black. In winter, ice hazards may also be identified with this marker in the form of a sign.
Controlled Area: A white buoy or sign with an orange circle and black lettering indicates controlled or restricted areas on the water. The most common restriction is slow, no-wake speed. Slow, no wake means operating your boat at the slowest possible speed necessary to maintain steerage, but in no case greater than five miles-per-hour.
This buoy is designed for deep water as well as shallow water, and there is a ballast inside. However, if your anchor chain cable or rope weighs less than 35-40 lbs, additional weight must be added to the anchor chain about 2′ below the buoy to equal 35-40 lbs. If added ballast is needed, a cement block is recommended.
