Hi Dennis:

 

My experience with "solar lights" for home and garden;  or in this cae a
pond??????  Is that they do not give off much light and seem
"subdued"....however, you might just want to pick one up and try it, if it
doesn't work, read the return policy....

 

Best,

 

Ron

Subject: {Stus-List} Anchor rode buoy/marker? - crowded anchorage

 

Couple weeks ago we were anchored in a crowded, busy anchorage.  There are
PWC and catamaran rental concessions nearby so there were a lot of
inexperienced boaters around.

 

I had a small red float (4-5 inch long) on a line attached to my anchor rode
with a springhook.  An idiot in a pontoon boat actually straddled my anchor
rode marker!  I now have one of those orange round 15" Taylor Made fenders
for marking my rode.  It will double as a fender when needed. 

 

We are planning to anchor in that same anchorage to watch the fireworks on
the Fourth of July.  Having done it last year, I expect there will be more
idiots and more boat drivers under the influence that evening/night.  I
would like to mark my rode with some sort of floating light.  I saw some of
the lights show below at a discount store for $10 US Saturday.

Anybody seen any better options?
