I have used these buoys for years. They are used for marking locations during search and recovery diving, to mark locations where something was last seen, or to signal distress by a diver. They have one disadvantage in that they will continue to unwind once they reach the surface due to a current or the wind. They have to be tied off with a half hitch to stay immediately over the top of what they are marking.
