Coast Guard To Begin Buoy Run Monday

 

The U.S. Coast Guard is starting its annual buoy run tomorrow. Each spring the Cutter Mobile Bay crew swaps winter aids with summer aids.

Lieutenant Commander John Stone, Commanding Officer of the Mobile Bay, says they have 113 buoys to visit.

Stone says the cold spring kept the ice on the water and delayed the buoy run. Usually the Coast Guard likes to have about half of the summer aids placed by April 21 and the other half by April 28. He says it’ll take upwards of a month to visit all 113 buoys.

The winter buoys are designed to withstand the ice buildup and winter conditions and are much smaller than the summer buoys. The summer aids are six feet in diameter and 20 feet tall, however not all of that height is visible when the aids are in the water.
