P. B. Locke15/06/2022DeployedNW-C-0838-22On June 15, 2022, SOS Toronto Chapter volunteers: - REMOVED the hoverwintering marker (large blue TaylorMade boat fender), and - DEPLOYED a 30cm diameter orange-on-white SOS Spar Buoy, e/w flashing yellow lantern, internal radar reflector, and self-retracting mooring pennant. The Block Chain Lift Jug was getting "waterlogged" so we filled it with air again, so that the polysteel mooring line would not fray against block and fail.
