I decided to build some floats for my giant scale foamy BUFY.

BUFY is a 70" span shockflyer type foamy. Distance from prop to rudder hinge loine is 48" so the floats are pink foam 36" long 4" wide and 4" deep at the step.

The floats ended up very heavy due to some over building on my part. Im going to do another set without all the extra plywood and try to save some weight.

They ended up working out pretty well though
