Waterproof Kit Bag

Has any one got a waterproof kit bag? I See Musto do one, but I was wondering if there are any others:

These are great. I keep one on the boat which I used to use as a bergen liner, very useful, very dry. Not a fancy kit bag but much easier to stow.

Dry Bag

You'll often find them in camping shops, I got a couple branded "highlander" they are not in the same league as Ortliebs but were stinking cheap at 6. If money is no object talk to a tube manufacturer and get some made up hypalon, they'd be almost indistructable and could match the boat, better still if they are an exact fit for your console or jockey seat box.

Depends on exactly what you want and the size of hatches/storage spaces!

We have had a couple of cheap dry bags which lasted about 2 years before starting to leak, and an Ortlieb which has lasted three with no problems, so we replaced the cheap ones with another two Ortliebs.

The rucsac style shoulder straps are excellent, and save a lot of struggling up ramps and slipways with your hands full of luggage and gear.

Stockists aren't particularly easy to find - we ended up getting them from a cycle shop in Manchester - I think it was here: www.withingtoncycles.co.uk

I have had a Ravenspring drybag for 5 years now and it is excellent. It has housed my camping gear and clothes on a trip to the Scilly Isles and can even be taken into the water as it floats. Will keep your kit totally dry.
