    Anything will float as long as the weight of the object is lighter than the weight of the water that the object displaces. So either biff the dog off the quad or put the quad on a boat, Either one will work!
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    It would depend entirely on the quad and its tires and the weight of its rider whether it would fully float or not.

    ARdave here is a thought. As an added measure strap an empty 20 litre water container low on to the front and the back of the quad. That will displace forty kilos of water and as water weighs a kilo per litre that would give you an extra forty kilos of lift (flotation).

    Triple B's suggestion of over inflating the Tyres is soun. By doing that the surface area of the Tyres would increase and therefor they would displace more water which would increase buoyancy.
