100+ Inch Cockpits

Many recreational kayaks have cockpit rims that are quite large - often exceeding 100 inches in circumference. Not sure of your rim size? Check out our spray skirt fit tool. IR does not make a skirt for rims that big, and in fact skirts this big can be hard to find from any manufacturer. There are a few reasons why this is the case:

  • Often times these rims are designed simply for deck rigidity, and not properly shaped to hold a skirt. The result is that skirts on these boats can fall off the rim very easily.
  • Rec boat designers - often times not really thinking about spray skirt fit- design the rims to contour the boat or to meet specific outfitting requirements. This means that rec boat cockpit shapes have tremendous variety. Making a different skirt to fit all of these shapes would be impossible for us to design and retailers to stock.
  • Big skirts can be very awkward to put on.
  • Big skirts are expensive to make - sometimes almost equaling the cost of the boat.

This is not to say that skirts for rec boats are impossible to find - but in most cases they will be limited to fit a few popular boats.
