CC Series Mooring System: When using the CC series as a mooring ball, please follow these simple instructions to achieve the maximum use and durability of this product:
- The CC series has a flexible center tube. If you use a chain, you must first insert a rigid PVC pipe. (See chart) DO NOT inflate the buoy until you have inserted the pipe.
- Lubricate with oil both the tube and the pipe prior to inserting. Make the length of the pipe so that you have 3 inches extending beyond the top and bottom of the buoy.
- Run a suitable size pin for your load through the top of the pipe and attach the shackle to the chain at the bottom of the buoy.
* Note These Buoys do Not meet the State of Connecticut's Mooring Buoy Regulations (see below). Please Check Your State's Regulations before Purchasing as a Morring Buoy.
