Sully Stick Winter Mooring Buoy
A long tapered buoy used in place of a standard round mooring buoy during the winter months. The Sully Stick has a molded-in eyelet at the top for easy retrieval. The base eyelet is reinforced with a galvanized metal bushing to attach a rope and connect to the anchor chain. The shape of the Sully stick helps it escape ice entrapment better than a round buoy and can extend the useful life of a mooring buoy by protecting it from the damaging effects of freezing temperatures.
