My dog, at one point jumped in the water to retrieve a buoy. On dry land it would have been toast. She gave up, but I gotta watch her. They really didn't get in the way, a long day, but worth it.

We used to sink ours and just leave the entrance gate balls up, then just pull the rope to each pvc section and put the buoys on and swim the turn bouys out, then retighten/straighten every time. We had it down and could do it in 15 mins. Unfortunately people started cutting the entrance gates balls, so we ended up sinking a sub buoy of one of the anchors and would just line it up with the shore lines to find it every time. It was all a pain regardless, but worth it.

If u paint a wooden stake and the grass at the entrance gates on shore, you'd have an easier time also

You will save some time by putting your turn buoy extensions on as you go instead of coming back for them.

Anyone interested in a 4 ball course? I have one only used a short time, just sitting in my basement. Would love to find someone who could use it.

I agree, the fastest way is turn buoys and boat guides as you go. The problem we had was communicating with the driver. I almost think it would be faster to have someone dive in and attach the #3 and 4 sections, then extend the #2. I think Ed at EZ Slalom can do this under 15 minutes. I just want to get to 30, but maybe that is impossible unless you do it all the time. Great product and design, along with support!
