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 )

pvc

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.

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.
