I don't thought that a login was required to see pictures.

The buoys are made from "noodles" (or "frieds") as said Rich, Glass Fiber rods, and the counterweights are made from five to ten nuts of 8 to 12 mm.

These pictures are from "Guillaume FRA72":






"Sardine" means picket, "bouee" means buoy, and "plomb" means lead.

Note that you need a cord in Nylon (polyamid), and not polypropylene which has a density less than water (it floats!).

The description of the RC boat used to anchor the buoys can be found in my Web site.

Look also at this other solution proposed by our Swiss Friend Yves Walter.
