Description

These Float Bags are the ideal size to use behind the skeg box in sea kayaks with skegs. When the rear hatch is empty, you'll use this plus a larger float bag under the rear hatch in front of the skeg box to complete the flotation for the stern of the kayak (bow flotation is needed too). You may even be able to leave this float bag in place on some camping trips if you don't need to store gear behind your skeg.

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 a hatch leaks (implosion in surf, operator error in sealing hatch lid, hatch rim leak, bulkhead leak, collision -- damage/hole in kayak hull, etc.). These scenarios are uncommon, but without back up buoyancy they are catastrophic. Adding float bags inside your hatches is cheap insurance.

We sell these skeg float bags in two sizes.
