Two float styles:
|Hydrodynamic float can be driven fast and hard thru the water by motor or sail power and it is designed for low drag and low splash.||Ethatfoam float is lower in cost, lighter and chunkier (shorter, but stays full diameter for its entire length). Fine for paddling, fishing, general safety. Okay for motor and sailing too if you keep float hovering above the water most of the time and it only contacts water when you begin to tip.|

Terminology: Canoe stabilizers are also sometimes called canoe outriggers, pontoons, or amas. Canoe outrigger, however, is anything that sticks out from a canoe. For example, we have rowing outriggers. The pontoon is the float itself. Same for an ama. They are also sometimes called "that thingamajig that goes across the canoe to keep you from capsizing when you have a bunch of kids aboard or a big hyper-active dog or when you do something inherently risky like standing up to cast."
