We have created a collection just for building your ditch bag for sportfish and center console boats. Ultimately you decide how much gear you want to carry to be prepared for an emergency but either way its important to have one. There are many bag options and its important to find one that suits your needs and then build your list of products for inside carefully. ACR is a popular brand that we carry. Some are buoyant like the ACR bags, some are not but may be better for small space or a budget, like the Aquapac bag. Watershed makes their ditch bags for the military so they are very well build and have a one way air valve so that when inflated they can add buoyancy but are still compact.
