Tunnel size fit chart
 Over the next day or so I will be adding this to make your your job a bit easier. We need a size to build your tunnel to and this should be measured around your navel roughly. This fit list will contain our basic sizes of small, medium, karge, xtralarge and xx large and their lengths in both inches and metric. This way when writing things on your tracing you will be able to mark Tunnel large or whatever the size should be. Tunnel adjustment straps make the tunnel smaller and give you about 6 inches of adjustment.

When the water hits the deck the last thing you want to worry about is your skirt.
Notice on the skirt to our left is the new quick grab loop whch  is reinforced and centrally located and stiched in place, this means no more looking for the loop when your upside down and needing to bail in a hurry and prevents us from pinning the loop under the skirt when putting it around the cockpit coaming. Remember we're not supposed to do that, right.

Thank you Greg. I looked and looked everywhere for a skirt my size. I went to specialty shops and internet shopping sights. It is so great to have a company now that I can special order from.
This note is from Stan from Mississippi and we were pleased to be able to fit his requirements.

I recently purchased a squirt boat and this type of kayak needs a skirt that fits well and works. Ed  who built my squirt sent the sprayskirt with it and he ordered it from SkirtworkS and if fits and I am extremely happy with it. now. if I can learn to squirt as well as the skirt fits I will be truely stoked.

Customer feedback The good,bad and lets hope not the ugly.
  I will be adding the feed back from customers here as it arrives. I bought my first skirtworks skirt when I bought my Asylum squirt boat. This boat required a custom skirt and Ed ordered the skirt for me when I ordered the boat. I liked it so much I contacted them and now I am a dealer. I bought as second one for my Freefall creek boat and it to is great. I will now be replacing my skirts for my sea kayaks as they wear out with skirts from SkirtworkS and an very happy with this decision. Sincerely, Greg

Hey Greg got skirt there shortly after we last talked and had a chance to try it out. I am very pleased with the way it fits and performs and was impressed by the quality of workmanship and material. I would defiantly recommend this company to anyone looking for a spray skirt for any kayak at any level. I would also like to add that your level of service was exceptional from the point of walking me through cockpit tracing to the follow up of the end product being delivered. Once again thanks for a great experience and product. Shawn

There is nothing like the security of a custom made skirt and SkirtworkS can be depended upon to deliver a fine skirt. Each skirt is hand cut and glued and I am very pleased with mine. I use a SkirtworksS on my Ayslum squirt boat and am totally pleased with this purchase. Sincerely' Greg
