Well you have to admit, a 1000lb mooring would definitely hold the swim bouy in place....

This is just holding a buoy to keep boats a safe distance from our dock. You would not believe how close some a-holes will get.

I put the buoys in yesterday, used the bungee trick and a couple of cinder blocks. We'll see how they hold. If not well enough then ill probably go to a cylinder head or bucket full of crete.

Take an old in inner tube and cut it into 5' strips about an inch wide. Tie one end to the rope from the anchor. On the bouy side. Pull it thru the eye and put a knot in it. It works very well on slalom courses. If the bouy comes off you can just pull the knot back thru the eye on the bouy.

What do you do for the winter?

Leave the anchor in the water, run a length of wire from the anchor line to shore. When it comes time in the spring to anchor the raft, buoys etc. you follow the wire from shore to your anchor line. We do this with our water ski jump, and numerous rafts our ski club instals for donations. This is by far the easiest way to deal with anchors.
