Boat A Float

What I’m excited about is how many lives will be saved because of my idea, plus the boat is saved too. They put airbags in cars, why not boats?
My idea should be installed in all boats!

Impact

The people’s lives that are going to be saved will benefit the most.
I think new businesses will start manufacturing the parts and bags, boat shops will be installing the system in boats creating new jobs
Boat manufacturer’s will be installing the system in the factory creating more jobs.

What I Will Do With $5,000

I would buy a boat and install my emergency flotation system building a prototype.
Once people see how well it works everyone is going to want my system installed in their boats.
