Not sure what you mean by not good. Most floats must be deployed by the pilot. On a sudden impact, unplanned ditching, they are not deployed. What it appears to be is a case of the floats being torn open by the impact vice an unsuccessful deployment.

not having seen floats torn open I can't really comment - but it looks a lot like unsuccessful parachute lacing that didn't fully undo... is that because the other float appears to be closed?
