Hat Floatation Insert
Category: Foam, water, float, clothes
Problem: I had purchased a wide brimmed hat that I liked wearing on the boat. However, when it did manage to blow off, I had to retrieve it quickly because it would sink.
Action: In addition to a strap modification I had made, I decided to place a piece of closed cell foam I had laying around into the top of the hat
Result: It works Great!
Additional Thoughts: We all seem to have our favorite hats and an insert like this would work in most any hat
When idea was conceived: 2016
How much time it took to develop: 20 min
How much money it took to develop: None
Current status: In use
Since it was originally done: I decided to secure the foam with a tie so it remained in place as the hat was moved around.
