contacted them to see if I could run a magazine test on one. In answer to the question of waterproofness the reply was that they are not waterproof and as far as the guy at NASA was concerned ribs were the wettest boats known to man! However the idea does seem good if someone can find a waterproof one. It would be nice in fog to see where the big boys were in relation to your position.
