skirt rand

so i remember being told that you should never use an extruded rubber randed skirt for a composite boat…that the coaming could be accidently broken by how tight the skirt was…

any thoughts???



I Think More Of An Issue…
is that a tight rubber rand can get stuck pretty tightly on a composite coaming. It’s a safety issue rather than an issue of damage to the coaming.

I have used a rubber rand on a composite boat and it is tight. This doesn’t bother me as much as it is a PITA to get on. I prefer a looser skirt combined with a seat belt.


i am getting a real boat now!
picking up a mega predator from a friend…moving on up from plastic!!!

still have that ski though…
