About the Founder

The Founder - Doug Masi

While growing up in Isles of Capri, on the Gulf Coast of Florida, I came to love all kinds of water related activities. Boating, waterskiing, and even paddleboarding, (which I was doing before it became fashionable), is currently more exciting than ever. With today’s awareness and emphasis on personal health, I’ve dabbled in all kinds of fitness routines. However, some, like running and jogging on hard surfaces, was starting to take its toll on my knees and back. When I sustained a knee injury, my doctor recommended aquatic therapy. After trying many different flotation devices, from inflatables to noodles taped together, I became frustrated with my lack of options. I was unable to find one device that could handle all of my requirements. Even floating on a raft felt like I was in a slow cooker in the sun. I knew getting under the surface of the water was the best way to stay cool in the pool. I needed an improved way to float and exercise!

Now, some 50 years later, with my in-depth knowledge and perpetual love of the water, I have developed the Float'nThang™. It’s a personal flotation and support booster chair that can allow me to float several ways, comfortably. With it’s dual beverage holders, I’m easily able to stay hydrated. Having it constructed with a closed-cell foam guarantees excellent buoyancy for a perfect float. It is so solid and sturdy, I can even use it for a temporary boat bumper. I’m proud of my invention and confident you’ll agree, the Float’nThang is by far, simply the best mutli-use flotation device on the market!
