Canoe Buoyancy Flotation Airbag - 105cm
Airbag Spec :
This airbag is constructed from tough terylene fabric which provides excellent abrasion resistance. The bag dimensions are 105 x 79 x 32. It comes with a BRASS EYELET at each corner to provide a means of securing them in the boat. It also has a tough plastic inflation tube with a SCREW VALVE.
This airbag is most suited to an OPEN CANADIAN. It is designed to fit at the end of the canoe and then securely tied in using the eyelets. You will need to purchase a pair to fully protect your canoe. It could also be used for a large Kayak rear deck WITHOUT centre foam buoyancy. I use the airbag in my Wild Water Racer with doesn't have any centre foam buoyancy.
Airbags provide additional buoyancy and reduce the amount of waterlogging in a capsize situation. When full of water, boats are very difficult to move and empty and are in increased danger of snagging on rocks and obstructions. With airbags fitted they float higher up, hold less water, make handling and emptying easier and REDUCE the chances of damage on rocks.
IF YOU GET THE WRONG BAGS - DON'T WORRY SEND THEM BACK AND I WILL SWAP THEM FOR THE RIGHT SIZE.
Airbag User Instructions
The airbag should be partially inflated before fitting. Ensure the area it is going into is free from sharp objects or protrusions.
Once in place, secure using the eyelets and then inflate. Remember not to over inflate the bag, It doesn’t need to be rock hard which causes excess strain. You are only trying to occupy the space in your kayak/canoe.
There is no problem leaving the airbag in place but DON’T leave it fully inflated. Temperature changes will cause the air to expand thus RUPTURING the bag. Additionally the boat should be left dry. Left in a wet kayak for lengthy period will cause mold and fabric to rot.
