  10. Hi all The zonker does not float although with a foam underbody it of course would. The Mylar over body is from Bill Skill ton he sells it on eBay an amazing product and a very good price, he sells anasotedpack of different colors. The under body I make with contrasting color wool which absorbs water well to allow a slow decent through the water. I did not include a rattle but there would be room for one. I will post some of the other colors as soon as I can Thanks again all Mike
