no float/pickup bouy required

A2 buoy seems appropriate, however why the requirement for a "float buoy"? The float buoy or pickup buoy hardly reduces gear conflict and arguably (with the 2 fathom/4 meter floating rope) makes fowling of propellers more likely, furthermore it just creates another "failure mode" where gear can be said to be inappropriately marked. Pickup buoys/floats should not be part of a "gear conflict" proposal.
