Spray Deck for Petrel S&G

Submitted by koineboy on Fri, 11/15/2019 - 18:14

I’ve built the Petrel S&G and purchased the skirt CLC advertises as the one that fits the Petrel, but the cord in the skirt is way too thick to squeeze into the narrow gap at 8&4 o’clock on the combing. Any ideas on what skirt fits this boat? Please help!

What type of edge does the sprayskirt have?

Is it a tunnel/tube with shock cord inside, or is the shock cord stitched directly to the skirt?

How narrow is the gap between the coaming and the deck?

The best long-term solution (IMO) would be to raise the coaming. Then you could use any "off the shelf" sprayskirt.

Can you borrow or try different skirts? The Reeds Chillcheater skirts are quite 'thin' at the edges. Seals skirts mostly have sewn shock cord at the edges.
