Buoy chaos ends in a web of organization.

The scenario is routine. You find a brush pile, mark it on your GPS, and throw a buoy. However, buoys tend to “crawl” around your boat. They never seem to be where you put them.  

You finally find it. Now you circle around to the spot and toss the buoy. You use great care to toss it just upwind from the spot. Perfect.

Then the buoy sinks just below the waterline.

Someone had stepped on the poor thing. While the crack is hard to see, it only takes a small crease to flood it.

There has to be a fix. This angler tried to stow them on the dash. The dash has a rounded surface. The buoys crawled away. Hiding them under the seat is not a viable option either.

Aha! A Tackle Webs would solve the problem. I placed an order on their website and my solution arrived by mail in a few days.

Installation was a breeze. I quickly screwed the web into the bulkhead with stainless screws. A level insured a straight fit.Image

Note that the location is close to the shifter and steering wheel. My Humminbird side-imaging unit resides just above the console.

The Tackle Web’s material is perfect for buoys. It allows them to dry completely instead of rotting away inside a hatch. Look out crappie, here I come!

Blessings, TJ
