Lobster Buoys in Casco Bay Maine


Every lobster boat in Casco Bay has a their own lobster buoy.
Lobster fishermen rely on the bright colors of their buoys to differentiated from the hundreds of other lobster boats in the region.































I love the black, white and neon green with the X. This one is my favorite.



This reminds me of a whistle.









What would your colors be?

Brilliant. I too am very pleased to have you back. All white all the way.

The buoy's rope cording would be wrapped in Waxwear's black watch plaid product. Maybe a camo/black watch patchwork with a fat, blaze orange knot on the end? How cool would that be?

I had a comment on hre but it got deleted. i work on a lobster boat and my bosses bouys are pink, they're easy to find. But, sence there are so many different color combos i'd probably make my buoys White, Red, White. ive never seen one like that and it would be easy to find.
