El Cheapo jug. Those will be easy to identify as long as you can find them.

Yes, if a big one gets I'll probably never see it again. At that point I can either use bigger bamboo, lash two or three sticks together, or add balsa to make a more buoyant stick jug.

Bamboo is great because it's hollow inside.

I hope you are going to use them on a small lake because those are going to be a pain to find.

I would also use at least a pound of weight per jug.

If those are free floater you better put some paint on them.
I don't think I could ever find them. When laying flat I think they will be hard to see.

That's going to damage a lot of boats/engine if they can't see them. What's the law regarding that? I understand it's any color but orange. Not mean to be negative. Just trying to think about safety of others on the boat.
