Buoy Restoration Under Way
Buoy Restoration Under Way
29 Dives - 20 Buoys With New Tethers
LMYC Members spent most of the weekend diving and restoring tethers on the lake's mooring buoys.  Scuba J made 29 dives inspecting tethers and anchor blocks and added new wire rope tethers to 20 buoys.  With only 5 more dives remaining, attention will now move to replacing damaged buoys, getting new numbers and reflectors in place, and hopefully anchoring some new buoys at approved locations.

A Big thanks to NORTH TEXAS MARINE OF GAINESVILLE for loaning their maintenance boat for the effort.  The job would have been almost impossible without that work boat.

LMYC Members Repairing Buoy
LMYC Members Repairing Buoy
Did You Know?.......

June 8, 2016.  The tie-up buoys located in many coves on Lake Murray were donated to the State of Oklahoma by the Lake Murray Yacht Club.  Under agreement with the State, LMYC provides for maintenance and repair of the buoys.

The buoys are available to all boaters on a first come - first serve basis.  Anyone noting a problem with a buoy should notify the LMYC.

Many of the buoys originally placed on the lake have failed and a number of the existing buoys have fallen in to disrepair.

LMYC has developed a repair plan and has received permission from the State to begain maintenance of existing buoys. As of June 6, 2016, all but 5 of the existing buoys have been dived for inspection.  20 buoys received new tethers and one additional was repaired.

It is expected the remaining 5 buoys will be inspected the weekend of June 8.  Approval has been received to set a limited number of new buoys.  This effort, and renumbering of existing buoys will begin the next weekend. 

LMYC has met with State Park officials to review the plan and have received their general concurrence.  The plan and budget are being submitted to Parks and Recreation for approval.  The plan allows for maintenance of the existing buoys and as many as 13 new (replacement) buoys to be deployed this summer at locations approved by Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Support the buoy program, join the Lake Murray Yacht Club.
