IMPORTANT Note from the website publisher:  The Wingsailer used inflatable, cube-shaped plastic jugs for flotation devices in the hull - the same collapsible-style container often used for potable water.  When I bought my Wingsailers, I assumed this was an "invention" of the previous owner.  I was incorrect.  According to the Wingsailer's designer, these flotation cubes were supplied with the Wingsailer, to be used as flotation for the hull.   

Be sure the flotation devices are still installed in your Wingsailer, AND check their integrity.
