No, I followed the instructions and the string/loop on the inner corner of the spray skirt doesn't reach the middle of the front mess pocket. Too short. The string on the outside corner DOES reach wear it is suppose to go.
Maybe the skirt is meant for a AI not a TI?
No, as Tony said the AI Sprayskirt is longer not shorter.
If the Sprayskirt is new, it is designed to take a lot of force stretching it to fit it (15%), but not normally after the first use or two. Initial install takes two hands steady stretching one side at a time with force to reach the eyelet post. Only the bow (anchor shackle) should be connected while doing this.
Does each back corner loop have a pigtail on it (about 5" long piece of cord with a loop on each end to extend to the pocket eyelet post)? You can compare to the TI Installation pictures (page 2 top and page 3 bottom). The single line with the loop on the end.
If this doesn't help, PM or email me or post more here, (maybe a picture) and I'll get you going. If you were a bit closer we'd just get together to fix you right up, but my truck doesn't have a snorkel. Hopefully I'll make time again to get over there, or you'll find yourself over on Maui. Ether way maybe we could get out for a sail together.
