Since I have lost so many pots in the PWS and since I have come to a conclusion that most of the pots were a victim of careless boaters running over the buoy and cutting the line, I am considering putting a 10 foot length of chain directly under the buoy. I came to the conclusion after discovering on two occasions, the buoy having been cut off and discovering my secondary marker buoy just below the water surface. Certainly if you do not pay attention and run over a buoy, it is going to hurt your prop/outdrive but aren't you supposed to navigate around them anyways? I intend to mark them with two buoys so that they are extra-visible. Any opinions here? I am sure I will get a few but wanted to see some comments.
