spend the money on a skirt
you get what you pay for, and if a skirt fails you might die.
I have seen several very close calls as a result of blown skirts, all the same brand, but on a variety of diffrent boats.
Go with Mtn. Surf or IR, they seem to be durable, reliable, safe and proven.
but the new material that IR is using for abrasion resistanace does not seem as good as what they used to use or what mtn. surf uses, but they say it is, so maybe so. Customer service is great with both companies.
