buoys are being overhauled ashore. Replacement can also be accomplished at a
mooring site during a regularly scheduled maintenance inspection by lifting the
buoy out of the water and removing and replacing the anodes while the buoy is on
deck. Whether the installation of the buoy anodes are on the bottom, in a sea
chest, or within a protective cage, a pair of angle iron brackets are installed which
will support each buoy anode. The brackets are welded directly to the buoy hull
and generally have threaded fittings for simple anode installation and replacement.
