HOW to BUILD an ABALONE DIVE BOARD-FLOAT
The below pages on how-to-build an abalone dive board-float are excellent. This float design and plans are Roger Rude's. Since many divers still use an inner tube, I must relay to them a bit of information. Once you get the feel of the boogie board you will realize the advantage it has over an inner tube.
