Why can’t SRA put a solar light on each lane buoy? Sure would make running early morning and night runs safer .

Get the new Lance Vick update on Fork. Makes life much easier there.

Relying only on GPS in low light conditions is a good way to get killed. Lit up marker buoys are the real answer

TPW isn't responsible for boat lane markers and they have reflective markings on them.

I know they have reflective marking on them only if you have a light!

If you are running a boat w/o lights at night on a public waterway, that is a whole other issue

I would just be happy if they could make the time to move the buoys that have drifted out of the lane back to their proper spot.

Yep...Vick Pro boat lanes a lifesaver because of this. Some have drifted pretty far off.

maybe try using a spotlight or get a light for the trolling motor. people have used this tried and true technique for several decades

BRA has them on PK and they are mostly useless as I recall. You still need to have some kind of spot/head lamp to truly be safe. Just be careful with the spot and aim down at the waterline. During the big tournaments on Fork you can see spots shining way up to see the top of buoys or trees and that's right in line with an oncoming boat!

Several of the dirtier ones on Fork look like stumps now that the heights are the same.

The ones at PK are great when running... Until that one big gap is there where the light is burned out... Then its pucker time..
