The reason we have no "shopping cart" is that there are so many options for your buoys that we need to ask questions about what you are looking for to ensure you get exactly what you are looking for.
Since all buoys are a natural wood product, there is a chance that your buoys may or may not have a crack or may develop a crack over time. There is no way to determine when and/or if your buoy will crack. This is what makes them unique and adds to the character of your buoys.
Depending on if we happen to have what you are looking for in stock, please allow 10-14 days for your buoy to be finished. It also depends on the complexity of your buoy - some may take a bit longer and some a bit quicker.
We charge actual shipping so depending on how many, what size and weight of your buoy will determine shipping costs. We generally ship via USPS and UPS - whichever is the least expensive to save you money. If you prefer a different carrier, please let us know and we will do what we can to accommodate your request.

You most certainly can. What a great way to give a personal gift. We suggest adding a primer coat (which we can do for you for a small fee). Cedar will bleed when painted if a primer base coat is not applied.
