  Idea maybe
  Posted by: Celia on Sep-25-12 9:19 AM (EST)

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.

Their solution was very simple and worked right out of the gate. It was a skirt with a bungie (I won't mess with rands but that's another story) - they put in a thicker bungie. I haven't an issue since.

The rand idea would have the same effect, but a thicker bungie might also do the trick.
