Re: Boogie Board Float

I went a little overboard with mine but here are some ideas....I wish I had taken pictures.

Used a front door rotating flag holder with a old ugly stick pole as my dive flag base.

Used eye bolts with washers on both sides for added stability to connect bungee cord to for a storage net.



Use the search function, if I recall there are some good threads on this out there. And be sure to post pics. Good luck

I still have to add a loop to hold a carabiner to the bottom and the dive flag is on the way.

I got some ideas from the video below and I wanted to go full plastic instead of using metals.

Some peeps prefer a very bright color like orange. You can currently get really cheap body glove boards at costco new right now for about $25. I prefer the heavier professional models.

I haven't taken it out yet but hopefully this week.

Nice build. Clean and simple.
