Whoa, nice looking skirt ! Is that a new version ?
Nope, that was a beautiful test version, that looked great, but had it's own extra problems, and wasn't as simple to create or install. BUT IT DID LOOK GOOD!
splash skirts are coming along nicely. It looks like it also could be used as a extra platform to strap an extra paddle or rod.
I've thought of sewing in a pocket or two in them. One to slide the blade of a paddle into, close to the bow, and one to hold the rest of the bowline in, near the aka. But their size and placement would need to be custom to each persons taste, and my wife sews them all and would balk at more sewing on them without major financial intensives.
(Dee just spent 2 days sewing for me a new 1/2 wide tramp for fishing which looks great, has many placed to tie, bungee, Velcro or clip and hold all my gear plus 100's of pounds of fish, or a person. But she has already drew the line on making them commercially. I'll post pic's shortly when I get it on the water. JesseJ's been sick with strep, so I didn't get out fishing with it yet.)
