A New Look at Buoy Markers


“Few images depict New England better than a row of colorful buoys
proudly strung from a seaside fence, shed wall or outside a clam shack.
However, this pride in our place and heritage is often replaced by
disdain when buoys are floating in the water tethered to their lobster
pots, fish traps or aquaculture areas. Many boaters and seaside
homeowners complain about the nuisance of buoys, describing them as
navigational hazards or blemishes on their seascape vista.”
