you can have them made from pvc but the job is finding anyone who will do a one off at a low cost.

what are you storing in the bag(s)

My local tube man says that it would not be a) cost effective, and b) not very pleasing on the eye to build them out of PVC.

I wish to store mooring lines, towing bridle, lifting strops, drinks, sarnies, bino's, and the other 101 things I seem to take afloat and need at the rush.

The pic from Millermob looks promising.

Its not the angle of the dangle, it's the motion of the ocean.

Check river rafting suppliers

There are all kinds of sizes and shapes of waterproof PVC and coated nylon bags available through, whitewater specialty sites. These bags come in top loading and side loading configurations. For rope storage, you might also want a mesh bag for storing wet rope, rather than a waterproof one.

You can also get all sorts of D-rings and webbing daisy chains that are very securely attached to PVC or hypalon patches. The patches can be glued wherever needed on the sponsons.
Quick-clip the bags to the D-rings by using nylon straps with fastex buckles or cam-locks + carabiners.

This set up would allow you to quickly attach or remove the bags wherever you need them (tops or sides of sponsons). It would also be much more versatile and far less expensive than having custom made bags glued to your sponsons.
