  Potomac Splash Skirt Help
  Posted by: old_user on Aug-11-11 8:05 AM (EST)
 

I have a Potomac 100 kayak from Dick's sporting goods. From what I hear, this kayak is difficult to fit a splash skirt.

Any advice? Would like to buy one before the cold weather hits, so I can get out on a cool Sat/Sun morning this fall.

Any help appreciated. I've been Googling like crazy for this.

First, measure the length and width of the cockpit opening and use that information when looking. Don't just go by the boat name, as many folks who carry skirts won't know the store branded Potomac 100.

Second, go back to Dick's and ask them what skirt they sell to support their product. Maybe they don't, but if they don't at least maybe it will help them to get the message across that they ought to stand behind the products they sell with appropriate accessories.

Third, call Appomattox River Company in Farmville, Virginia with the opening dimensions. If they don't have what you need, then call Blue Mountain Outfitters in Marysville, PA (the order is irrelevant, they're both excellent outfitters). You can Google both of those companies on the web for their phone numbers.
