Looks like a FLAGG deck with some foam underneath, you can actually see the pink foam if you look closely. I think if there was a 'real' floating prototype, it would have more ship like features such as a bow at least.

Looks for like a small inflatable kid's toy to me.

Recently I saw a picture on Craig's List where a guy was selling a Flagg he had modified to float. He made a plastic or fiberglass hull that connected with the bwo and tailfan pieces. He filled the hulle with some floatation foam for bouancy, then he put some weight on the port side, opposite the island so it sat level in the water. He was selling it for a pretty penny though, but he had a picture of it sittingin water and it looked pretty nice.

The father of a kid I knew back in the '80s had built a platform that fit in their swimming pool that the kid could set the Flagg upon. Ther platform was just below the water so it looked like the FLagg was floating.

That reminds me of Francis in Pee Wee's Big Adventure and his pool full of boats :p

Definalty see foam or something under it. It has thespots for the deck clips but the clips are obviously not there, why if it is a prototype? It is made exactly the same as the standard Flag. Basicly I am saying it doesn't look or act like a proto so I doubt it is, AKA its a joke.

Also one of the tags says "Blantant Lies"

I had the same thought! I'm kind of surprised no one here's tried something similar, or that thing Otto's friend's dad did.

Theyd better launch that Skystriker before the whole kibosh flips over and they become rubber shark meat or have missiles clog up the drain!!

Doesn't look too stable at all does it.

Still an impressive endeavor. I do hope he balances it out a bit, though.
