Authentic handmade Wooden Marker buoy painted light red and white. Marker buoys are used to identify an underwater object. They may be temporary or permanent. Marker buoys make a great addition to a nautical collection because their size makes them easy to display.
This Marker Buoy is approximately 48 inches long and 7 inches at its widest point. It weights 11.4 pounds.
Most wooden buoys are made of cedar because of the lightness of the wood. Cracking is the natural drying process in the wood. Only in rare cases would this affect the buoy and adds to it’s character.
When used with lobster pots each color and pattern is unique to a specific lobsterman.
These wooden marker buoys would look great in any nautical themed area, pool side decorations, Bar decorations, and patio areas are just a few. The options are endless.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
