The orange material used in these bags is no longer in production. It is available in blue and a couple of other colors however. I will decide what color will replace it. In the mean time, I have 2, 14's, one 84 , and one 72" bag left in orange. That will be it for the orange color..
Thanks

I just received mine. This sock screams HIGH QUALITY! A shout out to my buddy Classic 25 for a job well done. If you don't have one, get one! Better quality than you will find on a web site search and at a more reasonable price!

Do you make a sea anchor that "is" considered a safety device? Just seems like a good thing to have in case of power loss in deep water and stormy weather... Obviously a rookie question, but ready for the advice...

Good morning, right now just orange. I will have a darker blue soon. Kind of like a navy blue, but just a shade lighter.

jch53, thats a good question, and worth talking about.

When safety is the driver in a drag device purchase decision, understanding how each of them works is necessary. Drag is drag is drag, but there are caveats for each device out there.

For safety, a true sea anchor has to sink below wave action into relatively undisturbed water to get the best hold. If a device stays up on the surface in waves that are capping or have a steep face, as they do in storm conditions, their efficiency drops dramatically. Shock loads are very high at the surface in storms.

Its OK to use a safety device as a fishing appliance, but you don't want to use a fishing appliance as a safety device. These drift bags are over grown fishing appliances (drift socks/bags) that help control your wind generated drift. A fully rigged "sea anchor" requires the use of a shackle to accommodate for bag spin. A fully rigged sea anchor requires the use of a float on the trip line to keep the device from sinking in slack conditions to a point beneath the boat where it can become a hazard to the vessel should conditions worsen. It can actually sink the boat if allowed to get in that position. The float built into the ones you see in this thread prevent both spin and sinking.


Good question, and thanks for asking.

Default Custom sizes, designs and styles available to suit you needs!

All sizes back in stock, with the exception of the 14' bag.

Have a project or design in mind? We may be able to do it. Quite often at a fraction of the expected price!
