North Water Micro Throw Line

North Water has just announced a new throw line specifically aimed for people looking for boat owners looking to meet the Coast Guard requirements. The Mirco Throw Line is 50 feet of 1/4 inch floating polypro line. It comes with a whistle and a tie-down strap so it won’t get lost.

The Micro Throw meets Coast Guard regulations for the required heaving line and at only $24.95 it’s economical enough that rental companies could use it. It sure beats the crappy orange container/yellow plastic rope/whistle kits you get a big box stores and its way better than the old Nalgene stuffed with old rope chunks that a couple rental companies in my neck of the woods use.

It’s available now so look for it soon at your local paddling shop.
