I'm constantly amazed by the number of boats that are being
manufactured today that don't come with some type of trash receptacle. Anyone
that has ever spent any amount of time on the water understands the importance
of having a place to store your garbage. Sure it's ideal for keeping your boat
clean, but it also keeps cans, wrappers and other papers from blowing out and
polluting the water.
So when I heard about the portable bag dispenser from Davis
Instruments I just had to give it a try. The Knot-a-Bag container is only four
inches tall, yet holds over 32 feet of tightly wound polyethylene film. The
multipurpose bags are thick enough to keep odors from pets, wet items and
garbage from escaping, and waterproof so food or clothing remains safe from any
I found that it also works great for belongings as well as
carrying lunch. The bags can be created in any length and have a circumference
of 24-inches. The built-in safety cutter trims the bag to your desired size.
The clip isn't really practical because it tends to pop the
lid off the dispenser if you apply too much pressure, but because it's so small
it can store just about anywhere on your boat. Visit http://www.knotabag.com for more info.
