Default Very simple rescue boat

I have been searching the web for the various types of rescue boats being used. Using the info I found.......here is what I made at a cost under $5.00 (not incl. the boat), that attaches to my inexpensive "mini-Alligator Tours" air boat by Aquacraft.

I used 1/2" plastic water pipe found at Home Depot. It is flexible and bendable. A few corks to seal the ends of the pipe. Primarily attached with a very thin bungee, and some straps that hold it to the rear cage. I also put a 17" "Twist & Stay" (any hardware store) at the front of the boat as a support for pushing the boat that is dead in the water.
