Noodley Beverage Boat

Make this floating boat to cool yourself during heat waves.
Today I’ve got a smart and cheapo idea for all happy owners of backyard swimming pools. They are great spots during heat waves, but even though water cools you down, the danger of dehydration is still high.

Usually, when you swim, you keep your cooler by the pool. Istructables' user, Macgeek, found a better way to get hydrated while swimming than buying a pricey floaty drink holder or keeping your drinks on hot decking. He made a beverage boat with the use of a pool noodle; a storage container (with a locking lid) and waterproof nylon rope fo only $1.99!

Hope you’ll find this idea handy and helpful enough to make it yourself!
