Rafter's Flip Line Bags

This item is sold in pairs only, and run $45 for two. We are going to be switching over to the Salamander brand for this item in 2018, rather than the AIRE brand ones shown, because the AIREs have been discontinued.

Put one on each side of your raft through a D-ring, and unfurl the rope if your boat goes over. Swim around to the opposite side holding the rope (work the rope over the top of the inverted floor - don't let it go under the boat). Then, put your feet up against the side of the rope and started pulling the rope in.

Note that this isn't easy with a large raft loaded with gear on a three week trip. If this is the case, to have any prayer you will need two bags on each side and two people. For paddle rafts or relatively empty oar rigs on day trips though, it is surprisingly easy to get your raft right-side-up. You should practice on calm water if you are planning a trip of unusual difficulty. You pass a closed loop on the bottom of the bag through a D-ring, then squeeze the bag through that loop, temporarily "knotting" the bag onto the D.

These Flip Bags have about 14' of soft floating polyrope, but about ten feet of it is actually usable. You don’t want the rope too long or you will be holding it in the middle instead of the end loop where you can grab it properly.
