      A:

      I girth hitch them onto the oar frame just below the oars...one on each side, or midship on a d-ring if I'm set up to paddle.

      A:

      There are 2 locations that we have used to attach our flip lines.
      1 is to attach them to the main d-ring on the side of the raft. We have also attached them to the frame of our raft.
      To attach: put the loop through the D-Ring and then slip the loop over the bag.
      I have attached a photo showing the flip lines on a raft. They are connected to the D rings

      A:

      You want it attached to something that won;t pull loose under the force of pulling the boat upright - the frame, D-rings, whatever you think is solid. You thread the loop at the base of the bag through or around the object and push the bag back through the loop.

    Q:

    Would these be acceptable as painter lines on a canoe?

      A:

      They should work fine, but are designed for flipping a raft back over that has capsized...much heavier duty than you are looking for. I would just find a few pieces of line that are the right length and tie them on...

      A:

      Taylor, these seem short for that purpose. One of the Bowline Bags, Item # 81159.01, will have longer rope.

      Yes in my opinion they would work well

      A:

      They might be a bit short for tying off but if you're just using them to drag up on to shore I think they could work. I'm not a canoeist though so you may ask someone with more experience.

                        The best product that you hope to never use but is right where it should be if you do.
