I know it is a super long shot but I at least want to try. I was pre fishing on March 1st for the bfl when the person I was with that day they hit a wave and I did not have my rod strapped in on the passenger side and two went overboard.
Lost a KLX Kistler with 2016 aldebaran 51 left-handed as well as in an NRX 893 with a 2015 BFS aldebaran left-handed. Please let me know if you happen to find them as today I tested it and they did float.

I dropped a quantum exo/power tackle combo over the side at fork last year. It floated to my amazement

You know something someone could invent and become a multi millionaire off?

"Rod Jacket." Have some small floating device that attaches to your rod or reel that stays out of the way and doesn't affect the weight or anything. Drop it over, you can get your rod back. I've heard of people putting pool noodles on theirs, but I'm talking about a more "professional" rod saver

I used to be bad about dropping rods overboard, but they were cheap combo's so I didn't really care. Now that I'm fishing $600-$700 combos, I do everything to my ability to make sure they don't leave the boat. That has to be the most sickening feeling seeing an Aldebaren and NRX going overboard......

But anyway, if the "Rod Jacket" is already a thing, I'm unaware of it. Just an idea for someone to make money off of!
