Dagger GT 7.8 skirt

Hey Guys I'm a total newbie to the forum and to whitewater kayaking period but not a newbie to paddling as I've had a lake kayak for several years. Today I traded one of my lake kayaks for a Dagger GT 7.8 and I got a snap dragon skirt with it but it just don't seen to fit...I went to the lake and was going to get started practicing rolls and I fought with that SOB skirt for 30 minutes of longer trying to get it on and finally when I did I wasn't able to do squat because I was beat and I'm fairly strong and in got shape but I'm thinking it's the wrong size skirt for the model Kayak. the guy that I traded with told it was a sob to get on before I even tried. Anyone one on the board got any experience with this model kayak as far as skirt size? Thanks

Sorry wrong spot I moved this question to the gear forum

Should be a large. Skirts can be a bit stiff when dry, but it shouldn't be that difficult to put on.

Are you supposed to wet the skirt before putting it on?
