    ledge lounger?

    ledge lounger?

    I got these: Amazon.com: SwimWays Terra Sol Sonoma Chaise Lounge - White: Toys & Games SwimWays Chaise Lounge - Do you have one? I had to drill holes so they would fill with water and sink. They still have some buoyancy but will stay in place. So it will depend a lot on your water depth but...
