Why You Need Aqua-Bound’s BilgeMaster Pump

Unless you always paddle within easy swimming distance of the shore, a bilge pump should be a must-have accessory on all your paddling excursions…

If you paddle an enclosed boat like a sit-inside kayak or canoe, a bilge pump should be on your list of safety equipment. This is especially important for long trips and when you’re paddling out into open water.

Why Keep a Bilge Pump in Your Kayak or Canoe?

Hopefully, you won’t need it. But if you’re in a situation where water is entering your boat quickly—high waves, pouring rain, a leak or damage to the hull—your safety may depend on you being able to get that water out in a hurry.

Most people who’ve been paddling a long time can tell you stories when either they or someone they knew needed a bilge pump at some point.

Where to Keep Your BilgeMaster

Aqua-Bound’s BilgeMaster Pump comes in either 14-inch or 17-inch lengths. Either one will easily stow in the cockpit of your kayak, or in the outer pocket of a pack in your canoe.

Just be sure to stow it within easy reach! Strapped down with bungees several feet behind from you in a sea kayak doesn’t do you any good when you need to grab it quickly.
