OK just because I like to be a pain in the A..
Under float requirements they refer to round or spherical shapes must be 12" in diameter. Understood
If not round or spherical they must be 12" Long x 10" Wide. Understood.
What shape is an antifreeze bottle or a Tide bottle? It aint round and it ain't a sphere, I'd say rectangular of some type. Agreed?
OK under that scenario I am legal to use a 12"x10" flat piece of brown plywood but illegal to use a yellow antifreeze container or bright orange Tide Bottle? Even a round piece of plywood could be 12" in diameter and still be legal without being a sphere.
One day they'll figure it out, one day........
