need to stretch skirt?

I know I am showing how green I am with this.

I just got my first skirt. A snapdragon EXP large deck for a project X.

I can't get the skirt on it is super tight. Should I be having problems like this? The website says it is the right size. Is there something I should do to stretch it?

Leave it on the boat for a day or two has worked for me. Getting it wet before putting it on helps but can be annoying. It will stretch out over time.

a couple months on the boat will make a large skirt fit a xl cockpit just fine.

think of it as a winter project

Thanks for the offer, but I will keep this one. I was finally able to get it on the boat last night when I wasn't in it. I'm just going to let it stay on the boat a few days to stretch.
