i figured a way to make a cheap clear floatline. i went to the local hardware store and bought 60ft of clear vinyl tubing, 5/16" OD, 3/16" ID ($7.20). and a brass snap ($2.00) to connect to my float. and 65ft of 1/8" poly rope ($3.50) to use as a core for reinforcement. i just looped the rope ends and sealed the tubing by squirting a good bit of clear silicone. i now have a sealed floatline for about $13.00 after Uncle Sam gets his share, and an hour or so of my time. either way, i saw a 60ft clear vinyl floatline at the dive shop, but without the rope core, for $45.00.
