I have an 03 Valley Avocet and looking a spray skirt that will stay on while rolling and rough play. This has been discussed here before but hoping fresh ideas will eliminate a costly special order or a series of almost fits.

an '02 and '04. The seals standard size all neoprene 1.4 works fine.

it pops off with the slightest tug, the Seals ** version of same may do the trick, I dunno
I use a Pro Shocker model|

under coaming texture?|

Perhaps scuff with 80 or so grit? Apply a coating that adheres to poly for increased friction to skirt?
Wearing it too high?|

Try not pulling the skirt up too high so there's some room for you body to move without pulling on the skirt.

I had the popping off issue with a plastic WW boat, using a skirt that every measurement said should be right. I sent a tracing of the rim back to the manufacturer when I sent back the skirt.

No not my idea of a name but it's rather fun.
It is on the way|

I decided to go with this and believe it will do the trick.

Immersion Research Lucky Charm and it seem to fit and not pull off better than any in stock skirt. SkirtWorks came in second but both of these were over 150.00.
