Hello Johnny, you are right!! guess i had not thought that. my first wing was a smaller wing which probably is a fiberglass foam corred wing(manta foil 2015, 535 cm2) . never had any issues with that wing probably some neutral boyancy wing. the big wing im using now is a solid chunk G10(manta foil 2018 g10 wing 1100cm2), weighs more and does not float. will try smaller wing again.
fuselage is solid aluminum.
That's interesting! I had assumed that was the case, but hadn't seen any 'evidence'. I was thinking about adding some weights to my board for fun to see how much volume I could save (home made pocket board) if I got bored...

Love the duck too.
