Hi all Foamlings - and Louella as Moderator,

Here is a link that aggie 79 posted in the "Foamies That .. Float?"
thread that should be here too, even though it predates this new
section. It has useful info in it too.

Cheers,

I think the Bluebonnet II should qualify as a Foamie. It's a build in progress but has been camping for 2 years now.
