Description

Bow Float Bag originally designed to fit the bow for most models of Mariner brand sea kayaks (except Max and XL which are best with "Stern Bags" in both ends). Also fits bow of most other high volume sea kayaks (WS Tempest 180, TideRace Xplore X, Eddyline Nighthawk 17.5, PWS Sea Otter, most Pigmy kayaks, etc.). 

Note Mariner Coasters use the Mariner "Bow Float Bags" in both ends.

Also can be used in the stern of other brands/models of sea kayaks under 17' long WITH a third bulkhead for day hatch but no skeg box.

 

Note: All sea kayaks should be equipped with back-up buoyancy (two forms of floatation 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 developed by Mariner Kayaks that helps them stay in place better than triangular float bags - critical for kayaks without bulkheads.

Deflated dimensions 44.5"x25.5" (these are the dimensions from inside the seams not the outer edge of the fabric).

Made in the USA by Spirit Line Kayaks.

Made from urethane coated nylon

Color: Optic Green
