Lightweight Fishing Float Tube

Tom F. sent me this video and this link to a forum thread documenting the design and construction of a lightweight fishing float tube using heat sealable fabrics. Unfortunately the designer/builder, an engineer who posted under the name SHigSpeed, has died, but his posts live on. I wanted to share them with you in case you’re thinking of tackling a similar project; maybe somewhere down the line I’ll work on something similar myself, but I don’t have time at the moment.

Check it out!

  1. Matt: AWESOME link to this man’s quest to build a 2 lb float tube. I read through all 22 pages of posts spanning 5 years of research and design. Fascinating stuff. We lost a good one when he died.
