#364493 how to DIY strobe floats from styrofoam ?

Posted by simonK on 21 August 2015 - 08:16 AM

Couldn't be bothered with painting / coating the floats just used this stuff:  http://www.easycompo...Foam-Core.aspx

The layers glued together with evostick and then the whole lot held on with electrical tape.

The closed cell foam that is used as core material in composite structures works well. I have used it down to 70m with no problems. Google easy composites.

Don't over think it, they are all brilliant and you will have a great time. One of my favourites was Shinkoko, epic engine room and lots of life on deck. Oite was great but that's trimix depth. Rio de Janiero engine room has to be one of the greatest week dives ever.
