I remember as a kid playing with my gijoe frogmen in the bathtub as a kid. Which vehicles; vintage or 25th anniv float? Will a devilfish or moray float in the tub or just sink? Are there any vehicles that float without modification....

The Hovercraft floated v. well, I believe the Moray probably did. I used to take the WHALE into the bathtub all the time...I think the Water Moccasin and various small boats could probably float as well.

ahh man i remember we had a basket under the sink with all my tub toys. I wish i could re-live my childhood. If i could send my brain back in time and implant it in myself as a kid that would be sweet!

I remember the Moray would float until the tail flooded with water....then it would sink.
The devilfish floated the best.

My buddy had a pool + everything Joe/Cobra when I was a kid.
We used to play in his pool til it got too dark to see.
On a side note, we used to take the Water Moccasin out when it snowed, it actually zings on top of snow quite well, and fast

My water moccasin never floated. I had the Whale and 83 APC and both of those floated well.

One of the later toys that actually was designed for floating was the Shark 9000. It suffers from the Battle Corps colors but it wasn't bad at all.

I can't even venture a guess on that either.

I have a pool and heres what I've found.
1. Hovercraft floats, but I recomend taping the front door where the hydro sled goes.
Does anyone know what the compartment under the WHALE is for?!?!?!?! I was thinking of cutting a block of foam to put in there when I put it in the pool.
2. Hydrofoil floats very well
3. Moccasin floats poorly for about 10 seconds without modification
4. devslfish floats okay
5. Spytroops piranha floats nicely, but the motor is almost useless.
Iv'e been thinking of using that spray foam to enhance the buoyancy on the W.H.A.L.E. and water Moccasin.
I also made a preasure treated plywood floor for the Flagg. I pre-drilled some holes to attach it to the fagg's bulkheads. I then attached three enclosed 4 inch diameter PVC plumbing tubes so that I can float it in my pool. With four sky strikers or five Conquest X-30s its a 10 on the coolness factor!!!
