So on another thread we are discussing wooden buoys.
Some other ideas were mentioned.
I figured some honest discussion on buoy alternatives might be in order.
This would be for several different reasons.
Cost savings might be one reason but really a small part of this IMHO.
But Theft protection could be a big one.
I mean who is really going to pull a piece of driftwood thinking it is a buoy. Or what about a duck or goose decoy filled with spray foam?
I know there was a forum member who claimed his green buoys worked well but were hard to spot himself.
But they would still be seen as a shrimp/crab pot and possibly robbed or stolen.
The stipulations would be It would have to be both practical to carry, be something inconspicious as a buoy, and yet be durable enough to last awhile without sinking or being destroyed by mother nature.
So what are your ideas for some legal alternatives one might use as a buoy that might fool thieves but still work and meet the letter of the law?
