I’ll add some more garden hose cross supports (ran out of screws and washers—used 100 so far)

Works better than imagined
Designed so back third sinks so you could just drive up onto the ramp.

I’ll actually add a little more floatation all the way to the very back 1/4 just to have the perfect amount of front and middle bouyancy.
