Pyranha spray decks?

I just purchased a brand new Pyranha Burn (the new model). I really want to get the best fitting skirt so I can to eliminate the leakage as much as possible. Has anyone ever used the skirts that Pyranha makes??? or are there better ones out there?

I got a K-bomb from Bomber Gear for my Everest and it works great. I thought it was a bad fit until I figured out all the water was coming in through the many screw holes on the boat (especially the cockpit rim). Once I sealed those and then put gorilla tape over the outside I have been very happy.

Spacing their name now, but a company has you trace your cockpit rim and send it in for a custom skirt. Seals Skirts maybe?

I haven't tried the Pyranha skirts on my Burn, but the Snap Dragon with the implosion bar in deck size XL keeps things very dry. Of course, I've also siliconed all of my screw holes.

These are the best skirts on the market. I can playboat all day with no water in the boat. Welcome to SkirtworkS - SkirtworkS, LLC

Skirts with rubber rands are drier than skirts with shock-chord rands. Seals skirts are the best. Big rubber rand, easy to get on. bombprooof

Thanks...I will look into some of the ones suggested. I just thought that pyranha might fit best since they make the boats, but if no one has tried them, I better not order from England.

Regardless of what skirt you get, putting a bike inner tube around the cockpit rim at the sealing point of your skirt will increase dryness. Just cut the tube valve off before putting it on. I have had good luck with 26" tubes but others sizes may also work.

I like the rubber tubing idea. Then i can use an existing cheapo skirt I already have to just test the boat out. Is it hard to get the skirt off with the bike tire on?

I don't understand what you are talking about. Am I missing something?
