I’ve seen many people use the term “flotation” to refer to the cost involved in floating a boat. I’ll use it here to describe the cost of purchasing a boat. Flotation is the process by which an asset (a boat) is placed in a container (i.e. a water-tank) and then slowly released to the ocean.
Flotation is an expensive process. Depending on the boat you buy, it can take anywhere from two hours to a couple of days to float. In the case of most boats, they are purchased with a lot of money and are filled up with tons of crap. And not only do they float, they float pretty fast too. It’s a sad state of affairs when we can purchase a $90,000 boat with a lot of crap and still be able to float it.
The truth is that boats can be a pretty good investment in terms of the return you get for them. A few years ago I bought a boat that had been sitting in a warehouse for about a year and half. It was a pretty nice boat, and had a lot of life to it but it was still a pretty bad investment. Its not that I was expecting to get a ton of money out of it. I was just hoping to have it float for a couple of months.
That time-lapse video of the boat floating is one of the best examples of how easy it is to over-pay for a boat. Even if you’re able to pay for it with a good investment (like a boat), it may not be worth it if you have to wait six months to get it out of the warehouse.
If I was an actual boat, I might be surprised at how easy it was to get out there and crash into. The first time I rode the boat at the beach it was like a dream. I guess I was trying to see if I could get into the water without getting lost. I was thinking of hanging off the bridge when I saw the boat. It was the first time I had ever been in the water, and it was like a dream come true.
Well, except for finding out the boat was a flotation device. The boat was a simple box with a lid and a pump. It was a simple box with a lid and a pump.
Flotation devices are also known as flotation buoys. These are meant to be put into the water to help people float to the surface. They work by filling with air, and then releasing it into the water to keep the person afloat. The idea here is that a buoy is a “floating structure”, and a flotation device is a “floating structure with buoyancy.
Flotation devices are used in the U.S. most often for medical emergencies, but there have been a few incidents where people have been killed when they were used for fun. Flotation devices are often used to kill a person, as the person’s lungs are filled with air, and then the person is thrown into the water, but if the person is a swimmer, they may be able to float to the surface.
