NOTE: We are in the process of having these bags custom made again. Please be patient, it can take months to get this specialty product built.

Stern Float Bag for Mariner brand Sea Kayaks. Fits stern of all Mariner brand kayaks except the Coaster (for Mariner Coaster use two bow bags -- front and rear). This bag also fits the stern of many 16'-18' sea kayaks WITH a rudder (no skeg box) and no third bulkhead (no day hatch).

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.) 


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 56.5"x 28.5" (these are the dimensions from inside the seams not the outer edge of the fabric). 

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

Made from urethane coated nylon

Color: Black
