Love the rod holder and ladder guard ideas.

One thing I've always used them for is SCUBA tank holders for the car or truck.

Cut a long noodle into three equal sections. Bore, cut, or burn holes through each section at the top, middle, and bottom (a few inches from the end). Then take a length of nylon rope, tie a knot in one end the feed it through the top holes of all three sections, separating them by about 6-8 inches and keeping the pieces separated by that much with additional knots.

Tanks rest between noodle sections, and then they don't roll around!

OR you can just buy one pre-made. See photo.

For the Navy, they have 42" x 2.5"-diameter noodles colored dark battleship gray for all sorts of Navy use onboard their ships. Hey ..... if it ain't a battleship gray foam noodle then it's not standard Navy issue.

Anchors away with a battleship gray foam noodle ....... so many uses onboard with the Navy.

Navy SEALs who don't swim so good will use one as a swim belt for extra flotation to keep them from sinking and keeping up with the other SEALs who are stronger swimmers. Just like those Navy SEALs who don't swim too good ..... a foam noodle swim belt could make all the difference! ....

If anyone actually finds a foam noodle in battleship dark gray designed for military use, it will be a real unusual find. And of course the Army must have one in Army drab green.

So many adults are poor swimmers, unable to swim 100-yards, but tie a foam noodle swim belt around the waist very tight and it turns you into a super swimmer for the side stroke and breast stroke.
