Bow Float Bag for Sea Kayaks

$ 65.00 USD

Description

Bow Float Bag with trapezoidal shape. Originally designed by Mariner Kayaks but also fits bow of most other sea kayaks including Brit style kayaks. This bag also fits the stern of 17' and shorter sea kayaks WITH a rudder and third bulkhead for day hatch but no skeg box (i.e. WS Tsunami 170 etc.).

(Note Mariner Coasters, Mas & XL use this same "Bow Float Bag" in both ends.)

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 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 fills space better in all kayaks.

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

Made from urethane coated nylon

Color: Black
