GLOVERSVILLE, NY – July XXFebruary 16, 20065 - Taylor Made Products has expanded its line of Sur-Moor mooring buoys with a new model featuring a recessed shackle nest at the top of the buoy.


The rope-nest design has a built-in cup shape at the top of the buoy that allows the anchor shackle to nest below the buoy surface.  This protects the shackle from making contact with the boat when anchoring, and also provides a convenient nesting place for the pennant line when the boat departs from the mooring.


The buoy’s hard-skin polyethylene shell is UV protected to resist the weathering effects of sunlight, and is foam-filled to provide positive water displacement.  The galvanized rod runs through the center of the buoy with eyes on both ends.  The white buoy has a blue reflective stripe for night-time visibility.


Taylor Made Products, a member of the Taylor Made Group®, is one of the largest and most innovative suppliers of marine aftermarket products, including buoys, fenders, boat covers, bimini tops, dock products, flags, pennants and hardware. 


Headquartered in Gloversville, New York, the Taylor Made Group, Inc. has nearly 100 years of experience as one of the recreational marine industry’s largest, most diversified suppliers to boatbuilders and the aftermarket.  The Taylor Made Group includes Taylor Made Products, Taylor Made Systems, Taylorbrite LLC and Trend Marine.  The Group operates 12 facilities in the United States, the Republic of Ireland, England, Australia, New Zealand and Mexico.  Employing more than 1,300 associates, its products are distributed through a worldwide distribution network.
