Abstract : The condition of two experimental plastic mooring buoys is described after five months service to the fleet. The buoy with the hand lay-up outer shell had received practically no deterioration after five months of very light service; the buoy with the spray-up outer shell had received considerable damage to its top edge and side after five months of heavy service.
