I own two Seals spray skirts, a Tropical Tour and an Extreme Tour.
The Extreme Tour gets the most use. The neoprene deck fits my Romany cockpit well and the skirt does a good job of keeping water out. However if my torso is getting into the water I get water leaking down between the tunnel and my torso. Also, the nylon used in the tunnel is a little noisy as it moves back and forth with torso rotation - slightly annoying on a very quite day.
The Tropical Tour is my back up skirt. It doesn't fit the cockpit rim as well and edging the rim under water will cause water to leak into the boat. It is certainly not as dry as the the Extreme Tour.
Seals Customer service is 1st-rate! I broke the implosion bar on the Tropical Tour and Seals fixed it quickly at no charge.
