Kling-on Empire Posted by: Marshall on Sep-25-12 12:05 PM (EST)
No not my idea of a name but it's rather fun.
Immersion Research Kling-on and Kling-on Empire. Extremely dry and with a bungee rand with neoprene deck fabric stitched to cover around 3/4 of the rand so there's additional deck fabric protruding out from under the coaming when the skirt is on. This makes a 3 sided seal. Underside of the coaming, interior wall of coaming and deck surface adjacent to the interior wall of the coaming. This has worked very well on some RM coamings that have not had a great amount of relief to the lip.
The Empire has supremely durable Kevlar armor along the upper front surfaces which helps keep the skirt deck from damage for boat over boat drainings.
I'm sure there are other options out there too. This is what I've been using of late and been very pleased with it's performance.
See you on the water,
