I have got a feeling Shane may have a spare one. I have knocked up a 50mm version. I assume the yakkas and slimies are pretty small and will fit in them. I can knock one up for you as well if you like. Also plan to take up a rudimentary 100mm version

If you have those pool noodle float somewhere around the house (else buy form BiGW or KMArt for like 2-3 bux. Cut a smort short section and split them into 1/2 and cable tie them to your tube. Then the tube can float which will help reduce the drag....
