The hardware on the Buoys was replaced and updated as required with the mooring chain eye nuts replaced with a heaver stock. The Buoys were repainted and marked in accordance with Transport Canada Standards for Private Mooring Buoys. The GPS positions of VYC Mooring Buoys have been sent to Hydrographic Services for inclusion in any new publications of the Okanagan Lake chart
