it all works to get the boat upright.. But let me make one more STRONG suggestion on NOT USING a THROW BAG. Last year, flip in HORN. A Kayaker with a throw bag started to use it as a flip line. Where do you think the rest of the Throw bag line went? Around the swimmers? Yes... It became a 4 min tangled mess. And a dangerous mess. Pre run flip lines work most of the time. The pictures I posted are of more than 2 people righting a boat. More than likely if those rafters had been alone they would have had to Z drag to right the boat.. and thats for another Thread..............

-Homemade tow tether in purple (bungee cord through tubular webbing) stretches a little over a foot longer when under tension. Rappel ring and Petzl twist lock biner. This is just as a backup in a pinch or if somebody I'm with needs one.
-The 10ft metolius 'equalizer,' this would be my flip line in case I get lost and find myself on a raft.
-Two Petzl prusik minding pulleys on oval twist lock biners.
-One DMM 'revolver' twist lock pulley biner.
-Two 6mm prusik loops.
-The SMC swiftwater pulley I usually don't carry because of its size.

If you spray them with WD40 and action them a few times at the end of a season they'll say operational for ever. I have more than ten years / 10,000 miles on the auto locking BD pear on my flip line (though I have replaced the webbing more than once.. ) and it works like new.
