So we have a new to us, Wally Sinker Course. Our club members are half divided in 1) removing the balls or 2) leaving them attached. Removing the balls seems like a lot of work in the spring, trying to raise the sand bag laden arms. The thought behind taking them off is so they stay cleaner for next year.
I'm of a single minority in removing the balls but attaching our worn, backup buoy's to ride out the cold.
I was wondering what everyone else does.
