I simply bent a heavy steel wire ( about 9 gauge, the wire that is used to hold political signs) into a stand that the keel of the floater would slide into. The double bend at the top (I used a vise with a bolt tightened in it to bend the wire around) gave a support for the decoy to rest on and the bend held the keel tight. (You can squeeze the bends tighter with your hand to adjust the tightness) I even went to the extreme and slid a couple of pieces of orange pneumatic hose, that I drilled a hole thru, up and over the wire and up to the support platform to resemble mallard legs. (The legs of the stand are vertical and the double bends are horizontal to the ground)
There are several postings on floater to field mallards on the forum, just seach for them.
Here's a couple of pics and the rest of the pictures are on photobucket:
Don't you want motion on your decoys instead of them just standing there?
