    An anchor buoy looks like a balloon and floats on the surface of the water. It has a loop on top for tying anchor lines or ropes. It can indicate where an anchor is moored and also serve as a warning marker. They can also be used as fenders to protect the side of your boat from scratches when docking. Anchor buoys are made of brightly colored vinyl, PVC, or other durable plastic so that they’re easily seen on the water’s surface. A buoy can have a small diameter, such as 8.5”, for lighter crafts or a large diameter, such as 34”, for larger boats. Larger buoys take more work to inflate. Smaller ones use standard air pumps and deflate easily for storage.
