Glass Buoys

May 23rd, 2017 by Piper Smith

Glass buoys were used in the ocean waters to support large fishing nets- could be found with many individual fishing nets strung together, sometimes even miles in extent. These buoys prevented the nets from sinking.  Glass buoys range in size from a golf ball to a basketball.

Visit us at the Key West Shipwreck Treasures Museum and get an up close look at these buoys.
