Yellow Dan Fender Buoy Mini
Used in conjunction with existing anchoring tackle the stainless steel ring fits around the anchor rode for deep water anchoring
Motoring forward at 5 to 6 knots lifts the anchor to the float ring
When the anchor chain has fully passed through the ring the anchor is held at the surface
This allows easy retrieval of the anchor rode without the continuous weight of ground tackle
All Fenders are supplied deflated.
The best way to inflate a Fender is to push air pressure from a compressor with a flat head against the valve.
It is also possible to inflate the Fender with a bicycle pump with the special adaptor (SP379).
The best inflation pressure is 0.2 bar. (2.9 psi). You should be able to press the body of the Fender easily with your flat hand.
Do not use a needle (soccer ball) type inflation piece, as the pin can damage the valve.
The correct piece to use is an air gun with tapered end that fits into the end of the valve. Be careful not to over inflate.
