Mooring buoy is not an ordinary thing and is mostly
If you have no idea of what mooring buoys are then you must have seen in movies the large objects in the waters that is always situated there as a navigation system and helps in remembering the route.
Mooring buoys were originally huge in size and were heavy in weight. These buoys were made of heavy metals which were kept in sea water or rivers. These objects are only kept for navigation purposes so that people who are on the ships and boats know exactly where they are actually going. These buoys are also kept for safety purposes such as they mark the maximum safety level on the waters and after these points the water gets deep and dangerous.
These buoys are not only available in big sizes but also they are manufactured and made available in small sizes and has light weight as well. Small buoys are made of hard plastic that tends to easily float on the water and these small buoys look like balloons from a distance and they are made of sharp colors that reflect from a distance area. These small buoys are available in various sizes and colors and you can choose and buy the one which suits your need.
There is one problem that these buoys have some sort of difficulty in seeing as some of them are not painted in reflective colors and is difficult to spot during night time. So in order to counter this problem you can apply reflective paints on it or mark it with some alphabets so that people can see them from some distance.
These precautionary measures have to be taken in order to avoid accidents between the boats during the night and they exactly know how much space is between the buoy and the boat so that other boats can pass easily without bumping into each other.
Also these mooring buoys are used as a tool to harbor the boats near the docks or in the open water. Mooring buoys are used so that the boats can tie on it and stand on a certain point on the water. These mooring buoys are used as a parking stand for the boats with which you can tie the rope of your boat on the mooring buoys in the water. This helps your boat to be parked and stay on the same point on the water.
Buoys are made for doing different purposes but the sole purpose of mooring buoys is to provide a parking facility to the boats that are out in the open water and they need a standing point to tie their boats on.
