RIB On-Board Stowage Bags.

Can anyone out there help me? I am in need of additional stowage on board. Is there a company that makes Bags that can be attached/Glued to the sponsons?

I have seen the bags from 'Force 4' , but cannot beleive that that is all that is out there!!

Guess if you spoke nicely to one of the tube makers like Paul Tilley it would be an easy job to make something from scratch and you could get it exactly the size and shape you want?

I have a bag that is waterproof. It is made from material like sponsons or tubes. I throw the wet suits etc into it coming back from the beach.
Let me know if you cannot find details as my friend uses a similar one but smaller to carry his kit on board, straps to Handle, very waterproof and durable.

A cheap alternative is a used military surplus PVC duffel bag if you can find one in good condtion. I've picked a couple up in fair condition for about the eqivalent of 8 pounds. They wont keep contents dry if submersed (whereas most of the seal line bags will) but they will protect against heavy spray and splashing.

Many thanks to all who have replied.

I already use 2 drybags clipped to the seat which have foul weather gear etc in.

I have spoken to a Tube repairer, and he believes that the tube material is not suitable for purpose.

The Bow stowage is very spectacular but impeades access to the bow, hence the reason for the attaching to the sponsons at the stern. (missed out that bit on original post, sorry!!).

I happen to know the RNLI 'E' class Lifeboats on the Thames have bags on their sponsons. It's something like that I'm after.

But in your profile i see you have a Zodiac and they have pvc tubes. I am not sure you could have something like that made up in pvc. ( I could be Wrong )
