Bow Line Bag

$17.95 USD

The Bow Line Bag – for both safety and convenience.  This bag lets you quickly stuff your bow line or painter ropes out of the way, then get them back out just as quickly.  Safety, since there is no longer a lose rope coiled at your feet and your throw bag is still available to use.  Convenient to pull out the rope when you land to tie off and secure your canoe/kayak/raft.  Equally convenient and fast to stuff rope back into the bag for getting back on the water or for keeping the ropes out of the way when portaging.

(Rope not included)


Description: Tie your canoe, raft or kayak rope to shore faster using a Painter/Bow Line Bag.  Born out of practicality and safety, this small but mighty stuff sack is a quick and easy way to collect up the rope tied to the bow (or stern) and attach it to your vessel.   Quickly stuff the rope in the bag and keep it securely inside with the grip of 2 cord locks.  A quick release buckle makes it easy to clip the bag to a grab handle. When you need the rope again, quickly pull the rope out of the bag after loosening the cord locks.  

Rope is no longer unsafely lose around feet in the bottom of the boat.  Access to the rope is safer because there is no delay retrieving while untying knots.  Avoids the temptation to use a rescue throw bag as a bow line, so the throw bag is always ready for rescue use.    No more need to install bungee cords on the canoe deck.

Portage without the painter/bow rope hanging down or dragging on the ground.
