North Water Dynamic Tow Line 50'


See available boat safety equipment


A waist-worn tow system for sea kayakers, it features a bag that unfurls to almost flat and an internal anchor point offset from centre, so it doesn't bucket and retain water. It can be pulled in rapidly for fast reuse or repacking. The tow line has a pliable float, a large stainless steel carabiner and an internal secondary attachment that allows a variety of flexible towing solutions.

  • Tow line pouch lays nearly flat when opened
  • 50ft. x ¼in. dynamic shock absorbing polypropylene line meets Canadian Coast Guard requirements as buoyant heaving line
  • Mesh drainage prevents water collection and reduces drag, allowing fast retrieval after jettison
  • Attachment point for the rope/webbing allows the jettisoned bag to drag less in the water and as it's pulled back
  • Daisy chain loop allows the rope to be attached for a shorter tow
  • Pliable high-friction float can be moved or removed to accommodate towing more than one boat
  • Float can be slid up the line for multi-boat tows rather than tied off with an overhand knot to speed up tow rigging,
  • External anchoring point allows immediate access to the carabiner
