Description

Float Bag for stern of all Mariner brand kayaks except the Coaster (Coasters use a "bow float bags" in both ends). Also fits the stern of most other high volume sea kayaks over 17' long without a skeg box and no third bulkhead (no day hatch, i.e. PWS Sea Otter, Pigmy Coho & Arctic Tern, Necky Tesla). For 16-17' high volume sea kayaks without a third bulkhead or skeg and for high volume sea kayaks longer than 17' with a third bulkhead (and day hatch) but no skeg we recommend using the Mariner Bow Float Bag in both ends.

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 - especially critical for kayaks without bulkheads. Stern Bag is has a short inflation hose just long enough to reach the cockpit behind the seat for kayaks without bulkheads or inflate from rear hatch without a mile of extra hose to put away.

Deflated dimensions 56.5"x28.5" (these are the dimensions from inside the seams not the outer edge of the fabric).
