These are few and far between now. This is a particularly nice one with a long tail. Good shape to the buoy, made in a time when that was just as important.
These lobster marker buoys would be tied to the pot by a long rope to show the fisherman where his trap was located. The marker colours are registered with the Life Guard to prevent poaching.
