Keep the tarpaulin in place with the help of water bags around the boat. Fill them with water and hang in the eyelets / grommet. It gives a flexible weight to the tarpaulin. Feel free to reinforce the eyelets with a sticker. Fill the 5 liter can with 4.5 liters of water. Do not overfill the can. There must be room for the water to expand when it freezes. In Scandinavia it often gets cold in winter and the water in the can come freezing when it hangs outdoors. The water weight bag will replace hard and bulky plastic cans, sandbags, buckets with stone etc. In the spring, the cans are emptied of water and folded together to less than 1/20 part of its size, store in the supplied mesh bag. Compare the small storage bag with 8 bags and several empty hard plastic cans (often from car flushing fluid or juice). The bag is made of "Food Grade Quality" and BPA-free which allows it to be used as a drinking water bag as well. Perfect for "preppers" who want some extra water at home. Never attach a tarpaulin directly to the supports to the boat. Use Bungee Cord for some extra flexibility when tied the cans.

  • Weights ~ 4.5 kg filled with water (without water 80 grams / 2.8 oz). The weight is crucial for the tarpaulin to remain in place. Many people use 2 x 3 liter hard plastic cans to reach a good weight in each eyelet but with this folding plastic can it is enough with one. Of course, it is possible to fill less in each can. The weight bag can be reused for several years.

  • Takes little space when not in use. When the cans are not used, they are folded together into almost "no place at all". Store the 8 pcs bags in the supplied mesh bag 400 x 400 x 50 mm (16 "x 16" x 2 "). This is about 1/20 part compared to hard plastic cans.

  • The bag / can is made high quality material: "Food Grade Quality", BPA-free, Safe and Non-Toxic with screw cap. Robust handle, easy to carry and do not cut into the hand.

  • Easy to fill with water. The bags opening of Ø33 mm makes it easy to fill water from the sea or from a tap. There is often a water draft near the boat winterize place. Fill the can to the desired amount of water but no more than ~ 4.5 liters (1.2 gallons) even if the bag can be filled with 5 liters (1.3 gallons). Water expands up to 9% when it freezes and if the can is filled to the brim, it risks blasting the plastic. Natural forces are strong.
