Spray skirt modification / improvement

Whenever I have been using a nylon sprayskirt (Seals Sneak) during warm weather, light duty needs; I have always had leakage primarily at the rear of my cockpit, next to where the bungee chords are knotted.
Seals uses a small piece of hose to take up the slack of bungee, this piece would keep the skirt from fully seating up against the cockpit rim.
I found 2 smaller tubes that replaced the single larger hose, these tubes allow the edge of the skirt to fully tuck under the cockpit rim. The skirt no longer leaks.

Thanks for sharing. I will try it on my Seals Sneak in the next couple weeks when I take out the big kayak for some serious rolling. The Sneak is much cooler for summer paddling than my normal neoprene.
