Donate a buoy

As most work on the ocean is much more complex than on land, the installation process of a buoy is quite an intensive job (see picture on the right ). Apart from the materials we need (the buoy itself, shackles, steel cable, rope, etc) it involves diving and working under water. Also wear and tear in salty water is a factor to take into account, so maintenance is essential on a regular basis. Very often local dive operators help us with the latter. 

It would be great if you can help! You can buy a mooring buoy which includes the installation

WHAT IS A BUOY?

The Structure of a buoy

METAL CHAIN

THE PROCESS OFF CREATING


DIVER

To fix the eyebolt a diver drills a hole in hard substrate on the ocean floor or we sink a cement block. To the eyebolt we can attach the rope that is connected to the chain and the buoy.

MAINTENANCE

Every 3 months we go back to.

CLEAN AND MAINTAIN

Clean all the parts from corrosion/algae and if necessary replace parts.

THEFT

Check if the buoy is still in place.


ABOUT 6 BOATS
