PITTSBURGH, June 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- An inventor from Goodyear, Ariz. who is also a boater, was looking for a way to improve maneuverability in the water while using a flotation device. Not only was he successful in reaching that goal but he found his invention could provide more comfort, fun and enjoyment for water craft enthusiasts in other ways.
He developed patent pending FLOAT'N & BOAT'N THANG to provide seating for a boat or paddle board and also serve as a flotation device and a boat bumper. When used as a seat or floatation device, it affords adequate back support. Functioning as a flotation device, it provides an easy way for boaters or anyone to cool off and get out of direct exposure to sunlight. At the same time, it is safe, comfortable, durable, and is less than 3 pounds to carry. It will not absorb water and dries in seconds. In other words, it won't chip, crack, fade or peel and is flexible, water resistant and leak-proof. In addition, it is versatile and easy to attach and remove.
The inventor's personal experience inspired the idea. "As a boating enthusiast, I enjoy all types of water activities but had a hard time finding a flotation device that was really comfortable and portable enough for use from a boat or a paddle boat," he said. "As I expanded on my idea, I realized how it could be used for other water-related purposes."
