    Can't you make them out of 55-gallon poly drums? Those would certainly be considered modular.

    There are a couple of companies that make what they call "logs" for floating docks. I can't remember their names but the size may work. You would have to fabricate a bow because they are square on both ends

    There are lots of rotomolding companies making generic floaty objects out of plastic. I guess that the driving question would be... For what are you going to use them?

    If you can define that, then the search can be narrowed considerably.
