    I would really like to do this and have seen others do it before. Is there a clear sealant or flexible clear coat to put on them. Also if there is the smallest of leak the foam will absorb the water and weigh a ton. It will also crumble to nothing very soon....

    Any thoughts.....

    Thanks
    Stew

    Stew,
    Are these questions? Are you asking questions you want answers to or are you just waxing poetic about alligators? Latex will break down in water- could take one season could take 8-10. Depends on the quality of the latex. No sealant will keep water out if it is immersed.
    You could get a fiberglass alligator that has fewer issues.

    Yes Allen, sorry if I wasnt clear. I see distotions gator thats latex in water. Frightprops has those giant octopus tenticals. I just wanted to know how are they doing it without the foam absorbing the water or how to water proof it.

    The other thing I noticed by testing is it floats.....

    Thank you,
    Stew
