There are many guys making lures from PVC. Use search function and checkout the gallery.

I'm surprised it floated for you George, stuff I have tried in the past sank like a rock! Nice thing about it is if you can get it in white you don't need to seal it or prime it.............that's a big time saver and it's overall tougher and more consistent than wood.

I think the sinking stuff is the Outdoor board used for decks in the yard, I have not used that yet. I have used the white PVC board most commonly used for baseboards and trim - floats like a cork., good stuff to work with, beats working with wood for me. I know wood baits are great and they have their own appeal, but I would rather use PVC any time.

All of the AZEK PVC decking is buoyant, and good for jointed swimbaits.
And their trim board is even more buoyant, almost like balsa, but still strong enough for jointed swimbaits, and great for cranks and topwaters.
