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.

Some people, when trying to avoid thinking about those things that cause them pain, turn to drink, or perhaps food, or drugs... I turn not to any of those... I collect action figures, turning my mind to the hunt, so that I might find a mote of peace... Over the years, I've found that alcoholism is much more socially acceptable by far.
