About

Seems like everyone loves the idea of a therapeutic Hot tub, but why not take that further?  We have.

This is our floating hot tub idea, all the benefits of an actual spa but floating in the ocean!  The hot tub floats in the water and is surrounded by a floating dock. Once filled with water the hot tub settles down into the lake or ocean and "floats" in a water proof protective PVC tray.

Tech - powered by either 110 or 220v, the hot tub is connected to shore power via waterproof cable that plugs into the dock box. Like any regular Hot Tub out there, the system runs on a GFI circuit which protects the equipment as well as the users of the tub

 This floating tub is built for the boat owner in mind. Its next revision will include an pentagon shaped dock to fit the dimensions of marina slips, The idea is to place it in the front part of the slip so you can step off the pier and onto deck/tub. Or if a boat is backed into a slip it serves to "add real estate", in a sense creating more usable space - making it the perfect party platform between your boats rear platform and  the pier. so Let make this party happen!

Next revision will be pentagon shaped and "fit"

Risks and challenges

Risks - Ahh Yes with any project there are its share of risks and challenges and this one is no different.

Stability - working on some minor stabilization issues but feel these can be overcame with a bit of engineering and design, as well as float stabilization.

Waterproofing - currently building a custom made tray that replaces the liner from the video.
adding a bilge pump (similar to a boat engine compartment)
