Villian S sprayskirt suggestions

Hey guys I'm looking for some suggestions for a Villian S spray skirt. I have a Seals Pro 1.4 with medium tunnel, which fits just fine around the cockpit but the back is only about 6" to the rear of the cockpit rim and I think I need about 8". Right now the front of the spray-deck is pinching at my stomach. The other option is to move the seat back a bit I guess.

Also, what sort of stern float bags are people using with this boat? I have a pair of Gaia standard split sterns but they seem too small. Gaia split bows seem fine for the front.

I just got a Villain this summer, and I had already purchased the NRS drylander skirt last year. thankfully it works great. Xl tunnel, XL cockpit. its always a little tight until it gets really wet and stretches a little.
Two things I do to make it easier: I always soak the skirt for aminute prior to hopping in the boat, and also secure the rear half of the skirt to the boat before cinching down the backband cleats fully. its a little tricky, but i have to lean back to get the rear of the skirt on successfully by myself.
NRS gear is top notch IMO, and they also make large stern Float bags. its also around ~$100 for the skirt, so pretty cheap. I also like the look of Bomber gears stuff.
Hope this helps!! :]

Check out the new Kling-on skirt from IR, or the Special K if you are rough on your hear- you will need a XL cockpit in our skirts as well! Cheers
