Hello MN your setup looks good, but will you have enough flotation? I guessed at the dimensions/volume of your floats. 5”(H) x 12” (W) x 98” (L) x 2 (Floats) / 1728 (# of cubic inches in a cubic ft) x 62.4 (weight of cubic ft of H2O) = 416 lbs. I know the tires will add to this but will it be enough.

I don't know. I've seen plenty of guys float there quads through deep water simply by getting off the machine and the quad floats pretty well. I'd give the extra flotation about an even chance depending on rider weight. If it were me on it, it would probably sink to the bottom faster than a rock.

I heard that quads float really well on their own. Upside down. I hope I never find out for myself.

Never saw one turtled. Have seen guys walk alongside their quads in really deep water. Don't recommend it up here. Water is usually very cold.
