Sealite’s buoys and lanterns assist with vessel safety in Seward, Alaska

Yellow Sealite SL-B700 buoys complete with SL-15 lanterns have been chosen by West Construction Company Inc to be used to mark the end of a construction zone while they extend the breakwater at the Seward, Alaska Boat Harbor. The SL-B700 was chosen because it is very visible for its size and makes a great construction marker buoy.

The east breakwater is being extended by 215 feet and will maximize wave reduction in the harbor by overlapping the east and west breakwaters. All of the project work is being done from a barge to minimize disturbance to harbor users. The Sealite buoys and lights are being used to mark the extension to route boat traffic around the end of the construction zone.

West Construction specialize in heavy marine, civil and structural construction including bridges, docks, harbors and breakwaters.


  • Sealite’s SL-B700 buoy is very visible for its size and is delivered ready for immediate installation
  • Safe and clear marking of the construction zone
  • Polyethylene buoys are bright to catch the attention of mariners and never require painting
  • Buoys are manufactured from polyethlene giving them high tensile strength which provides increased impact and puncture resistance

What Our Client's Say

“[Re: Sealite Wins Duke ™s Choice Award for Java Technology & the Environment “ Sealite GSM monitoring & control system], The team at Motorola were extremely impressed with Sealite’s innovative integration of the G24-Java wireless module in their GSM Monitoring & Alarm System.”

-Golan Haver

“As one of your new distributors (Belize and Honduras, Waller Marine Belize LTD), I would like to express my congratulations to you and your people in providing reliable, dependable and inexpensive products. Formerly we were distributors for a Canadian made product but these were found to be too expensive for the market and also offered only difficult and complicated programming. Our first order of lights from you (SL15 ™S) took only four days to arrive from Aussie Land, when I opened the box they were still flashing. I tested a SL60 (white) for four days (steady on) before it required a recharge…remarkable. I will be placing another order with Dana shortly keep up the good work.”

“I just wanted to say thank you for the light and bracket Sealite supplied to Birkenhead Marina. As the other lights (old ones) need new batteries I will be replacing them with new lights from Sealite and the same brackets that you supplied with the light we received last week … Your product is excellent and the system of setting the light is good also. Thanks again for all your trouble.”
