If you are doing more recreational kayaking then you might want to look at a half-skirt (like Seals Splash Deck) or a nylon zippered skirt (like Seals Sneak). The cockpit you have is large for someone who is not linebacker sized (like me) that you might have an easier time mounting the skirt on land and then slipping into a covered but more open skirt on the water. The zippered ones should be pretty easy to slip into when open. It is easier to mount a skirt on land by sitting on the back of it and moving your legs forward to hold the skirt down while stretching it over the front.

Honestly for mellow water paddling you can leave the skirt home.
