I dont know but I have 8 buckets that are filled with concrete that would make a good tie down for any FADs...

Buckets tend to roll. Especially with tarp fads.

If it weren't illegal, I would probably use PVC with plastic safety fence and concrete in 5 gallon buckets as an anchor. I would also use the best quality line available to keep it from breaking away. If we keep seeing them floating around it is going to become an issue.

I would set in more than 60 ft. with the top, no less than 20 ft. deep. That is, if it weren't illegal.

So what would happen if the FWC stops me on the way out with, say, 4 buckets full of cement, a few cords, and a tarp??

^ Tell them you are using the weight of the buckets as trim for the boat. The tarp is used for extra shade and the rope is used to hold tarp in place....
