I always find the history of some of these words interesting… get all the Scuttlebutt on the Grok, maties!
… That’s how I got started, driving the golf cart and then golf got in the way.
Being developed for military and rescue work, this is a slick rig. Would be pretty tough and hard to sink. Even if a couple of the track sections got a hole, I expect you would be ok.

OK, when you think we would have found everything the Earth has to offer, along comes something new.
A floating "raft" of pumice (volcanic rock) – nearly 10,000 square miles of it. The state of Rhode Island is only 1,200 square miles.
The way I read this other article, its not one solid chunk, but rather many, many golf-ball sized rocks, floating together.
Kind of a fun one…
At Yacht Island Design we like to do things differently
We like to base our designs upon innovative floating platforms. It frees us to explore bold and daring ideas which challenge the accepted norms within the yachting industry. No longer are we bound by the restrictions of a conventional hull shape. This unleashes creative flair and individualism for our clients as well as us!
Our approach is to consider the design in a holistic manner. We like to ensure that a common theme runs throughout the yacht, from the overall exterior shape down to the smallest interior detail. The most important thing for us is to ensure the original client-driven concept is achieved in a flowing and seamless manner.
We continue to see abandoned boats be a problem in the poor economic circumstances many people are experiencing. I saw articles on CNN and Fox News just today.
The Boggsville Boatel is another take on making practical use of some of the abandoned fiberglass hulls that marinas wind up collecting.
