Hey I'm sure that some of yall would know or have tried this. I was wondering those deeks that take a few BB's for the team. I wonder if you could use some of that foam in a can and fill them up to make them float. I've used silcone but it comes off. Thanks

Hot glue gun , best thing I have found to repair shot holes. It is quick and cheap and holds on extremely well.

Poly foam is the best but triple expands like stated before. Latex foam is single expamding but does not tighten up like poly foam. I would go for the latex foam and seal it good as it's not tough, but will float it.
Look up DAPtex made by Dap industries.
