i think thats a "poontoon". never seen anyone use it with a uboat or poontoon float tube. Dano and LC may have seen that.

I have never seen this before I believe it is for a pontoon boat also. But there if there is a will there is a way.

BG is correct, would be tough on a float! Bigger flippers is the answer!

I've seen it done at Irvine Lake. They are usually not used till you hit Pontoon Boat size but if you have a float tube that sits you high enough out of the water and is stream line enough and you buy the longest kayak paddle you can find which I believe is about 240cm it kind of works. The paddle moves you along and your fins now are used to guide you in the direction you want to go... honetsly it seems like more work than it's worth just go buy a dive scooter like Ed has.

I use it to go from one side of the lake or harbor to another but then i kick when i am fishing . It is just tied to a d ring so it dont float away. And i can tow a person with no problem is actually help me travel straighter it like when you add a tail to a kite

**Not trying to hijack the thread, but wanted to show there are some with built-in oars and then some out there.**

I don't read Japanese and have searched all over but cannot find them in the U.S.

There are more of a selection in the floater section even some with trolling motor mounts
