The buoy is really big! Last week I tried it into a swimming pool, works well! This week will try at sea. But, I wonder why a relieve valve is located on the top of it? In the photo on the buoy has a valve at the lower part.

Extremely large, -slightly- difficult to fully inflate from 10m, but will get to 3/4 without much difficulty and can be orally inflated to full on the surface without much difficulty. Very visible. The dump valve on the piece I received was at the top instead of the bottom as in the picture, and entirely too small to be practical. Will probably be replacing the dump valve on it.

Questions and Answers for Highland 10 foot Surface Marker Buoy (SMB):

  • Bom:

    Is this SMB a self sealing base or has any duck bill valve so it can keep floating at surface? Does it come with mesh sleeve? Thanks,

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    According to the manufacturer it has a "baffled bottom" for anti-spill inflation. It does not seal completely at the base.

  • Trung:

    We are looking at this for a different purpose in helping our swimmers in the lake as turn around buoys. What is your suggestion for something to hold this down / upright? Cinder blocks? When stated this is 75 lbs lift, is this with the surface marker buoy fully submerged? We can have this partially submerged. Thank you. Thank you.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Trung, yes you can use this as a 75 lbs lift bag. But for what you are looking to do you can have this halfway submerged and use this as a turn buoy.
