Like most, I tire of the long time it takes to wind the marker buoy in.
Some years ago I saw one on the net for sale but can’t find it anymore.
Any of you have any bright design ideas?
As I recall, it involved a cheap power screwdriver that plugged into the marker buoy, and it was a beautiful thing. LOL

I remember those. A bouy with a stem to attach a drill or power screwdriver to wind the weight back up.

They were not robust enough to last very long before the stem broke off.

idea 1 Drill a hole thru it, put a bolt thru it with a nut on either side, sealant to seal hole and brig a cordless drill.

idea 2 Bring a kid along and toss it to him and tell him to wind

idea 3 get a spotlock trolling motor and ditch the buoys
