Making a sprayskirt
by EMK
I tried making my own skirt for a prozone, but can’t get it to hold (using shock cord). I have a skirt for my atom that uses a rubber strip to hold it on, tear shaped. Anyone know where I can order some of that material? Or have other ideas to get the skirt to hold? Thanks.

Have you thought of Inner tubes?

Have you thought of using innertubes? If you could find one that was just the right circumfrence it would be perfect. Just cut the valve stem off first or people will really think you've flipped your lid.

I have a buddy that left the stem in and pumps up his skirt with a mini bike pump at the put in. Just rember to use an innertube that's much smaller than the rim, so it doesn't expand away from the cockpit rim when you pump it up. Oh, he does this because he squirts a lot and hates having to empty out. His boat is the driest I've ever seen.
