Diesel 75 (Float + Dry Bags?)

Hello All...

Still looking to round out and complete my full newbie WW kayaking outfit for use in the Spring.

Based on the feedback I received here and elsewhere I ended up with the following:

Wavesport Diesel 75
Werner Desperado Paddle
Astral Willis PFD
Snapdragon Reinforced Skirt
Peak UK Deluxe
WRSI Current Helmet

What I am looing for now is float/dry bag combos for this boat. I would like for them to be capable of being used for both. 90% of the time these will be float bags, however I want to get bags with some versatility so if we decide to do 2 day trips I can pack some gear.

Here are a couple sets that I found in passing. I am sure they are sh!t, but I don't want to buy the farm, I just want something to keep my stuff dry when needed, and to keep my boat on top of the water when I swim. Taking recommendations. Post links if you'd like.

3PC YELLOW BOATING WATERPROOF DUFFLE BAG/FLOAT+DRY NEW - eBay (item 330282780032 end time Nov-06-08 12:44:09 PST)


Seattle Sports Co. Dry Bag 3-Pack - eBay (item 300269440119 end time Nov-04-08 07:57:02 PST)


Thanks in advance for all of your help...

Sincerely

Bob

get the wildwasser dry-stow or watershed futa. you will almost always want to put something (clothes, snack, safety kit) in your boat and have it stay dry.

NO, they belong in the back of the boat. unless you are doing overnighters and need to even out your load thats when items get stashed in the front of the boat.

So...For a Diesel 75, what and how many bags do I need. Just the one? I just want to make sure that if I swim that my boat has enough floatation it does not get pinned and two I want to have ample dry storage for overnight trips.

Are there bags that will stow a small sleeping bag? If so...which would you recommend?

Thanks Caspermike...

Now...I have had the Wildwasser Dry-Stow and the Watershed Futa recommended...any other recommendations? And any large enough to stow a small tightly wound sleeping bag?

good luck i have to hand pack my sleeping bag into my bag i can't stow it in my compression stack first but thats alright i can usually put some other shit ontop to make room in other bags. like my bivy or some first aid. i usually throw estra skirt and extra dry layers in case im ever in need of warmth. the little bag is what i use for stove, gas, and food.

depending on the run and length, for boxelder id throw a pair of hiking boots and the nrs sherpa in a bag together with my other important shit on the other side.

Okay...so I am probably going to get these Wildwasser Overnighters...just wondering for the Diesel 75 if the large or small would be best. The way I look at it...bigger is always better...but if it won't fit then smaller is better.
