Description

Bow Float Bag for Sea Kayaks. Fits bow of most sea kayaks including Brit style kayaks and all Mariner brand kayaks (for Mariner Coaster fits bow and stern). This bag also fits the stern of 15'-17' sea kayaks WITH a rudder (no skeg box) and third bulkhead for day hatch (i.e. WS Tsunami 170 etc.). Note for 16'-18' sea kayaks, this bag will typically fit in front of the bow hatch so you can access gear from the bow hatch to the front bulkhead even with the bag fully inflated.

Note: All sea kayaks should be equipped with back-up buoyancy (two forms of flotation in both ends). Float bags inside bulkhead compartments create a backup flotation system in case of a hatch leak (implosion in surf, operator error in closing/sealing hatch lid, or hatch rim leak, bulkhead leak, damage/hole in kayak hull, etc.) 

Specs

These bags have a trapezoidal shape (see photo) developed by Mariner Kayaks that helps them stay in place better than triangular float bags. This shape is especially critical for kayaks without bulkheads but it fits better in most sea kayaks.

Deflated dimensions 44.5"x 25.5" (these are the dimensions from inside the seams not the outer edge of the fabric). 

4' inflation tube with nozzle that screws open and closed makes inflation easy.

Made from 200d urethane coated nylon

Color: Black
