Included in the Row to Sail Seahopper upgrade pack:
Buoyancy Bags and Straps
Standard with the sailing version. The bags are blue in colour, made of 0.16” PVC and conform to BS 3501-1. Each bag is 55cm long and 22cm diameter. Supplied with fixing straps, as an added extra to stop you having to buy these elsewhere.
This serves to improve stability slightly but its main purpose is to prevent leeway and keep the bow pointing upwind when sailing close to the wind.
This is the standard bracket supplied most often for people who want to alternate between using a rudder sailing or rowing, or an outboard for motoring.
Rudder and Tiller
The rig consists of mast, gaff, boom, 2 sails, mast stays, halyards and sheets, fittings and screws and assembly instructions. (Select sail colour above)
