Does has anyone engineered a super efficient solution to put in / remove (sink) the mini course?
The scenario is a lake where trick path is right over the mini course buoys. There are time demands/limits, so the ability to quickly transition from trick to mini slalom is a necessity. No, the practice sets cannot be scheduled such that they never alternate. Depth is roughly 6-8 ft, so somewhat over head, but not crazy deep.
Idea #1: Sink them - how far under the water would be sufficient to clear a trick boat prop? Mechanics of doing this? Anchor ropes through large carabiners at anchor points and pulled to shore, attached there? Other ideas?
Idea #2: Sub-buoy them - same concern as #1. Best practices for sub-buoy setups given this scenario?
Idea #3: Quick release at anchor point, but how to make this easier to find, do? Guide rope from anchor to shoreline? Other ideas? Type of "quick release/attached" solutions? Large clips, magnets, other crazy brainstorm ideas? Any best practices to share?
