This 16-foot-high water slide is used by resorts and summer camps to provide safe, reliable, waterborne fun for entire families.

The resilient structure defies punctures as it is constructed of a layer of commercial-grade 1,000 denier polyester fabric sandwiched between two layers of 28 oz. PVC — the same method used to construct the inflatable boats used by the U.S. Navy Seals.

Every strong seam is hot-air sealed, and the PVC is treated to block damaging UV rays.

Twelve heavy-duty molded plastic handles assist climbers as they scale the structure's four steps to the top, from where they can slide down briskly into the water.

The interior measures 10'L x 12'W x 6'H, allowing most teenagers to stand up completely as they swing out over the water from one of the three molded handles.

The structure should be anchored in at least 8' of water.

Deflates in 30 minutes to 40"L x 48"W x 36"H for off-season storage using two dump valves; includes storage bag.

Fully inflated: 25.5'L x 12'W x 16'H.

Weight: 491 pounds.

$9,000.

If one uses these things in navigable waterways I would expect that they would be classed as watercraft and would have to meet certain standards and, property taxes and license fees would be assessed where such things apply to watercraft.
