- May 1, 2001It just seems appropriate for something that's going to be used on
the water to float. I can imagine it being an advantage for a bar to
float but I can't think of a reason why you'd want one to not float.
The aluminium bars float fine and I expect the carbon fibre one to
float as well. Why not make one that floats when it's easy to do.
Of course, you could always say why can't Naish make a decent bar
when it's easy to do, or Ken Winner make a bar that doesn't wear out
leaders when it's easy to do, or ......
BTW. Had a look at the Cabrinha 4-line bar. It looks not too bad. The
holes in the ends look a little small for the sliding leader leash
thing, but there doesn't look to be anything sharp to wear the
leaders. The chicken-loop mount is one of those clamp-on stanchion
mount fairlead things. It would work very well but looks a little
