Pool Noodle as an Equipment Holder for Snorkeling
(Fleetwood, PA, USA)
My pool noodle equipment holder
While on a trip to St. Thomas and St. John in the USVI we went on a sailing excursion and did some snorkeling in which we used pool noodles to help keep us afloat. Although I enjoyed using a noodle, I also wanted the freedom to dive to take some pictures.
Next month, we’re going to Turks and Caicos and I know that we’ll be headed out to a few locations on our own and will need to take our phone and other valuables with us. Having read about your making a utility belt, I came up with the idea of using a pool noodle that I can secure to my ankle so I can dive to take pictures while not having the noodle blow away and still also have other items secured to it. Attached is a picture of my semi-final product. I still want to change out the small S carabiners for slightly larger ones.
I’ll let you know what I think of using it when I get back from the Turks & Caicos Islands.
In 2016 my wife and I vacationed in St. Thomas. While researching for the trip I came across this site and purchased your eBook on St. John. I'm glad I did both.
