Buoyancy bag - Red/Blue/Yellow/Orange Twist lock tube valve
As required by IOD'95 rules.
These Optimist air bags are made of polyurethane coated nylon and are about half the weight and significantly stronger than buoyancy bags made of PVC or PVC coated nylon. The buoyancy bags come with a twist lock tube valve. This valve is attached to a piece of tubing. With this valve the bag can easily and quickly be inflated and deflated.
Twist lock tube valve, size inflated 29 cm x 92 cm, content: 48 liter. Size deflated 44 cm x 98 cm, radius 5 cm.
Please note, not to over inflate the Optimist buoyancy bags. When bags are properly filled, they will be soft to the touch. Over inflated buoyancy bags may burst when heated up by the sun or rising temperatures. Make sure there are no sharp points in your boat that would snag or puncture the buoyancy bags.
