Scientists, sailors, meteorologists: I need a buoy! I'm looking for a small buoy hull for some scientific instrumentation. [more inside]

All I've been able to find are huge NOAA-style weather buoys and pre-made sensor buoys like this one
that are the right size, but already loaded. It seems wasteful to buy one and gut it. Is there a company that sells buoy hulls designed for sensor payloads, or is this a custom job? Something between 1-3 feet in diameter with a clear top for solar panels and a watertight seal is all I need. It doesn't seem too tall an order, but I've failed in my own google searches.
