Getting ready to purchase a party island to be able to hangout on in the cove, just seeing if there was any you would/wouldn't recommend? Appreciate the input!

If anyone has one for sale too let me know!

Check Costco, SAMs club or BJ's wholesale if you have one near you. I posted one about a month ago called the Blue Lagoon. $140

Costco is good in that if you don't like it for any reason you can get your money back. It is not uncommon to see people return them at the end of the season and get another one the next year.

Here is a link to the blue lagoon. http://www.samsclub.com/sams/shop/product.jsp?productId=prod5250266

That emperor float is insane, where in the hell do you store that on your boat? It would take an hour just to fill up with my 12v pump. Cool for my shorehouse but not the boat for me.

I like the aqua lily pad ... do they ever run specials or does anyone sell them cheaper? How do you store it?

12v Air pump and it takes about 10 minutes? Not really sure, but it's not long...

We use it all the time, doubles the amount of space available, I store it in the V-drive locker, if you use the air pump to suck all the air out and fold it takes up about 1/3 the locker.. :)

You can find end of season deals from mfg. and others on eBay and CL.

It rolls up and has straps to secure it. I put it on swim deck and put the straps thru the transom eyelets when cruising to the spot. It has a bungee to tie off to when floating also. When we are done I unroll it in the driveway to make sure its dry, then roll it up and store in garage.

Does it pretty much have to go on the platform, opposed to rear locker or z5?

Oh, I used some of your tantrum advice (rolling onto your toes) and it helped big time on the amount of air I'm getting now. Appreciate it big time!

Ours is too big for the locker and do not have a z5 so not sure about weight. I think it's 6x18 when unrolled. I like it on the swim deck because the kids can easily unroll it to use it and when it's time to leave they can easily roll it back up while I'm dealing with anchor and such. When we get boat back on the trailer I travel with it in the bed of pickup.

As for the tantrum advise, I'm glad it helped. I really enjoy helping folks out when I can especially when it involves wakeboarding.

WE have a living room set the best part of it is it is a towable the only problem is the base is 12'x12'. so it is big and does not fit in the boat well deflated and takes a little bit to air up.
Also this is the only one i seen beside in u-tube videos.
