1.Ensure buoys have a negative weight in water so that they provide upward net buoyancy.

2.If attaching a secondary cable (offshoot from the main line) to a buoy the net cable weight will reduce the level of buoyancy applied to the main line and so this should be checked to ensure there is actually net buoyancy acting on the main line.
