I really appreciate the help I’ve gotten from everyone already and hope its ok if I ask a few more questions as we’re going through this process of getting our *new* ramp into jumping shape.
Basically I’m looking for opinions on flotation. I have one person telling me plastic 55gal barrels will do the trick and we can get them for about $5 a piece from a local car wash. I have another person, who I consider pretty knowledgeable, saying they are sketchy and we should go with 24”x48”x16” foam filled dock floats which are about $180 a piece. I’m inclined to agree that we should go with the proper dock floats but since the price difference is going to be about $100 total vs $1500 I figured I should hear from some people who really know before we go ahead with either option. So would 55gal drums work well or will we regret going down that road?
Thank you all so much!
