Lake bouys (from garbage) and/or pool floats

Thought this was a cool little idea- and came across as I’ve been in the midst of making a little micro-shanty boat/raft boat out of 2-liter soda bottles (for its floatation/pontoons). “The High-Fructose Floater” is the name- based on a design that’ll eventually be in my next/follow-up, micro-housing book.

Plastic Water Bottle Lake Bouys- functional and good lookin'

Its looks as if this is simply a painted plywood disc, with bottles attached around it (I’d assume by screwing through their caps, and then rethreading the bottles back on). These would make for decent pool-candle holders for parties, or even floating drink carriers. Not sure how durable they’d be for lobster/crab trapping though, with rough seas, etc….

Still, a decent idea….
