A plastic jug with the top cut off makes a workable bailer, but this heavier, built-to-last model has a handle which makes it easier to hold while bailing and a nylon lanyard so it can be hung off of a cleat.
Scotty Hand Pump
This pump is particularly handy for boats equipped with a teak floor. It can reach down under the floor into the recessed area around the drain plug to pump out any water accumulated there.
Safety Equipment Kit
This O-ring sealed watertight kit with a nylon lanyard for hanging contains everything needed to meet US and Canadian Coast Guard regulations. It contains 15 m of buoyant heaving line, a sound signaling device (whistle), a watertight flashlight, and the container itself is a bailer.
The rowing mirror can be seen on the gear and accessories page. If one is rowing in crowded areas, this may well be considered a safety item.
White Transom Mounted Stern Light
This white 180 degree stern light mounts on one of our transom gear mount bases and is designed to keep the bright white light out of the rower’s eyes to preserve night vision while rowing in the dark. AA batteries not included.
Gear base with arm and light: $169 CAD
Base only: $95 CAD

Clamp-On Red-Green Bow Light
For rowing after dark, carrying a proper red/green bow light plus a white all-around stern light is highly recommended. These portable marine LED running lights meet all lawful requirements for use on inland and international waters when properly positioned on your boat. They use AA batteries (not included), and are completely waterproof with double O-ring seals.
