Mooring buoys require the attention and care that is not always needed when the boat is moored at a marina. Each mooring ball needs to be inspected on a regular basis to ensure that everything is in good working condition.
To maintain your private buoy, it is important to check every chain for rust and marine deterioration. Every shackle must be examined in the same fashion. All fiber lines should be kept free of sand and should be replaced if frayed parts are visible.
