Carolina Waterworks, Inc. (CWi) fabricates and sells sturdy, low-maintenance, and eye-catching mooring buoys and marker buoys. Available in assorted sizes and configurations, our buoys are always on the job, making boating and dock life safer and easier! Please take a look at our buoy product offering.

Mooring Buoys by Carolina Waterworks

family of carolina waterworks buoys

Our mooring buoys are built to last! Their impact-resistant high-density polyethylene shells are 3/16” thick and they are filled with expanded polystyrene foam for the most reliable flotation.

Our standard buoy comes in white and is highlighted with a reflective blue strip. You can also order additional colors, graphics, reflective tape, and ballasts. Every sturdy, reliable buoy carries a two-year warranty.

Wear-resistant Polyethylene Construction

Another important feature that is unique to our line of mooring buoys is the thick, wear-resistant polyethylene tube that is molded directly into the shell of each buoy. Contrast this with competitors who often utilize loosely attached PVC pipe.

Reliable and Low-maintenance Mooring Buoys

A frequent problem that contributes to excessive buoy maintenance is algae growth which can degrade ground tackle. One considerable benefit of Carolina Waterworks’ polyethylene construction is that poly resists marine growth much better than PVC, so our buoy line can help extend the life of your ground tackle.                          

No-Scrape Mooring

Exposed tackle on a buoy can lead to hull damage (and angry Skippers!), so CWi mooring buoys are available with an optional rope nest or shackle pocket feature that keeps the exposed metal away from your finish.     

Marker Buoys by Carolina Waterworks

Ramp Surface Options from Carolina Waterworks

Our ramps are also available in various surface options, including:       

Ramps with Aluminum Decking:

More durable than wood, and at a fraction of the weight of steel, aluminum-deck ramps define long-lasting convenience. Installation and maintenance are quick and easy, as is removal at the end of the season – or when nasty weather threatens.

Ramps with Ipe Decking:

Forget all your fears about wood decking because Ipe (EE-pay) is the tropical king of wood density and hardness! This exotic hardwood species grows tall and strong in the forests of South and Central America. And with its rich coloring and fine to medium texture, Ipe is not just tough and durable (and naturally slip-resistant), but it is also easy on the eye!

Ramps with Poly Decking:

Carolina Waterworks ramps with poly decking are extremely durable and will resist the effects of sun and wear, such as rotting, molding, splitting, twisting, warping, and drooping. Its synthetic non-porous construction is extremely water-resistant. And it will stand up to the kinds of abuse boaters will throw at it, including food stains, chlorine, alcohol, and tanning lotion.

Ramps with Composite Decking

Carolina Waterworks ramps with composite decking will maintain their color without continual repainting and sealing. They maintain their structural integrity without warping or splintering. In addition, because the contents of composite decking consist partly of recycled plastic materials, it earns high marks for sustainability.
