Water/pontoon/amphibious bike?

Hi everyone,

I was just curious if anyone knew if there is a kit somewhere out there or if there's any 'easy' way you can turn a bike into both a LAND bike and a WATER bike? I live on a small lake and I do lots of biking and it would be awesome if there was some way I could get an amphibious bike thing going somehow.

I know it can be done, but is there a kit or some way you could do it with like empty 55 gallon drums or something?
