Comparative buoyancy of long tubular components

Question

Do the mobile science labs float? And if they do, how much of them sticks above the water? I'm not at my home computer and will not be able to test this for some time. If someone could drop a lab in the sea and post a screenshot, that would be great. Also, could you take a similar length of the new structural tubing of the same diameter as the lab, capped by "Rockomax Brand Adapters 02s" at both ends, that would also be great.

I strongly considering sending a sea plane base out to Laythe, but I am not sure how to build a craft carrying the required (for me) two science labs. But if I can use the labs as part of the floats, might be easier. I already know I'll need to build massive wings and between 4 and 8 jet engines (depending on the model I use).

So if anyone isn't doing anything (I'm ADD-ing in a lecture on the basics of MS Word), some you mind dropping some things in the water for me?

Basically, everything floats in KSP, with a very very short list of exceptions. However, the mobile science labs have an extremely low impact tolerance. So getting them splashed in (whatever it is that passes on Laythe for) the water is going to be extremely problematic.

If nobody else does a quickie bouyancy test for you in a couple hours, maybe I'll do it.
