Storage pockets.

I am looking at a way of attaching pockets to the tubes of the rib to put my binoculars, camera and phone in, so I can get at them quickly when needed. There's nothing worse than going through your dry bags trying to find stuff you want and quickly, only to find its worked its way to the bottom of the bag or its in the wrong bag, plus there is less chance of damaging these items sat on the inside of the tubes rather than me fixing them to the side of the jockey console. I have tried google to see if anyone sells them, but nothing came up. Can anyone help or got any ideas ? Cheers.

I use different colored Pelican boxes for small stuff: First aid kit in a yellow box (they don't have a red), repair tools in a grey one. You could do likewise (though I do have ample closed storage to stash teh boxes in; YMMV.

This is exactly what the RNLI does with their inshore lifeboats, Kerny. If there is a station near you, you could ask to visit and have a look. Or try calling the Inshore Lifeboat Centre at Cowes, where they build the boats, on 01983 292521. They welcome visitors there if you wanted to go and see how they do it, or they would be able to tell you what materials etc to use if you gave them a call

Not red, but orange is available. We too use colour coded Peli cases.

Martini recently got a many-pocketed bag, not dissimilar to our Viper deployment bag, to use in his SIB. Looks like a pretty neat solution to me.

It would be possible to add hypalon loops that allowed pouches to be attached to the tubes too.

Thanks Ian, I will give them a call. This is more like the way to go for me, rather than fixing hard boxes I'm looking at something like envelope style pouches with velcro flaps that I can attach to the grab handles on the tubes with bungee cord and perhaps suckers attached to the bottom of the pouches to pull round the inside of the tubes and stick the suckers to gel coat of the hull where the tubes meet on the inside. Maybe someone can come up with a better idea than this, all input appreciated. This could well be an idea for rib makers/tube manufactures to market.

Deployment Bag

I like it fantatic use of the language, from this moment on my holdall is renamed!

As it hapens I'm just buggering about with some hypalon and some neoprene Laptop pouches and am about to make the sort of thing you are talking about. (it was my idea first!) If it works out I'll send you some pictures of the results and you can make your own. So far I've enough for three pouches 11* 8 inches and it's cost me 25 quid including Gloo.

I am working on a Modular Rapid Deployment Redeployment System but I'll probably wind up using Caribeeners
