We need to collect info about modding, not just for the float tubes, but also inflatable pontoons as well. This site stands out as a dedicated floating armada forum, yet, very little info on a collective mod for floats, toons, and yaks. We need to bring this site into a spot light further. How?

1. Collective of mods photos in a single area, or various links. What ever you can find on the net, we need to pool the found info into one photo collection, of course, mention where you found the photos at. I'm still trying to relocate all the links where I got the photos from to give the other site's modders the credits.

2. Products and locations they bought the mod equipment from. Rather than searching through the forum, which the search function is lacking by the way, how about a few posts in the mod section to give the straight-to-the-point info?

3. If gears are self-created, how about step-by-step instructions? I'm pulling my files out now, including all the calculations, step-by-step instruction, as well as recommendations from all the research that I did.

4. People in the forum that's willing to share experienced knowledge on mods and modding services, such as welding, metallogy, designs specs, etc.. Information is scattered all over the place. It's nuts to find the information one needs. If we want this site to thrive, we really need to make something like this happens.

5. Products reviews. No, not the typical company's product hyping. I'm talking about proper third perspective reviews, by the common anglers for the common anglers. No bias, no paid opinions. Just pure and respected reviews of products used. Do we have that forum section in here somewhere?

Am I stepping over my bound? Please, let me know. I love this forum and its member for dedicating their resources for floating anglers. We need to push for the site to explode on the network highways.

If there's photo gallery we can shove onto this site, even better. We can collect everything and shove the files there. Otherwise, we need to horde!

I like all of the above. Maybe we should have an online meeting to talk about the best ways to accomplish some of those goals. What do you say Jeff, its your baby!

It is the FLOAT tube forum, what he is saying is that all of this information is here already, and for the forum to thrive, a little better organization would help.

Remember, a float tube is a relationship of a man-powered floating device sitting on water, let it be a U-boat, round-boat, hybrid floating tube, inflatable pontoons, or a kayak. The relationship is one of the same. We use it all under this float tube forum to be united under one interest: float and fish.

cool idea, it would be nice to just make one click and check out all the pictures of mods made instead of going through hundreds of post.

Thanks for your input Asiandude.

I've dedicated a section of the forum to tubes/pontoons/kayaks.

I understand the desire for consolidation and organization of ideas. I support that movement. But I firmly believe the purity of this forum is what gave it it's identity and charm. It is what I would guess brought so many here.

It was different. Now...it is not.

Sorry there is no "smiley" to go with this sentiment.

hmm... Where to start...

First off, thanks for the input guys. And just like all of you, I would like to see this forum grow, but it's gonna take some time.

Lately I've been able to make some time to make this forum a little more organized and have it focus more on float tubes and other personal watercraft.

Hey guys,
Hmmm,... interesting,...

Seems like a good idea to collate some of the most common answers to the most common questions.
What tube?
what toon?
and the incessant, What waders and fins?
product reviews?
and boat mods?

Kayaks,...? Maybe, but they are a completely different vehicle. (as are toons)

I nominate Asian Guy to be in charge of all this stuff, He seems to have the juice for it.

Hmmm,.. I didn't realize we were tying to take over the net. Hee Hee,....... bodfish

Well we have almost 300 members and we are grow with just what we have. We also got a lot of sponsors only a few when I joined this forum has alot of great people and friendly too . It bad enough that some people think that float tubes are a poor mans boat and looked down on . My point is we all have a good thing here and its working just fine and yes we talk about everything good days bad days when can we fish and meet up and I don't see a kayak guy meeting up with a tube and fishing the same.

I think AsianGuy is on to something. Having all that info in one area, in one easy to read section would help out a lot. No more searching around for what you know is there but can't seem to find, AND when new guys join they'll see that information instead of asking the same question over and over again.

As far as yak's.....uhhh they are a completely different beast. If you are a tuber and a yaker that's cool....but there are plenty of other sites out their for those guys. As far as i see it, toons are different but they are almost the same thing. Not trying to start a toon vs tube argument but compared to a yak or boat a toon is the next closest thing to a shark donut.

I know this site is suppose to be dedicated to float tubes, but it also should be be open to all other personal watercraft to help this forum grow.

This is the reason why I added kayaks. If this doesn't seem like a good move we can remove it.

I'll post a poll about this subject later to come to a conclusion.
