    Hey all,

    I find that many spray decks do not fit the Delphin 155 well. The cockpit seems to flare somewhat at the sides and decks tend to peel off a bit in these areas. Has anyone found one that works well for this boat specifically?

    Thanks for any information or advice. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    That way I'll know when I get a Delphin :wink:

    Seals ProRand 1.7 works great for me and seems to hold up good in conditions. The only drawback is for my girlfriend who finds it hard to put on.

    I've used a Seals Extreme Tour 1.4 the times I have paddled a Delphin, and it worked fine. Some may find it tight, but I like a tight skirt.

    Sergey from Neptune's Rangers is using one of the Randed versions with his Delphin.

    I am hoping Neptune Bill chips in, as he has a Delphin and uses a different brand.

    I have a Delphin 155 and use a Wild Wasser size super with a rand not a bungee, and it fits perfect. This is a White water skirt, it will take a little extra strength to put on.

    Robyn and I just got back from taking our new Delphin 155 out for it's maiden in the salt chuck. Both of us have Snap Dragon spray skirts (Ocean Trek and Glacier Trek) in large deck sizes and they fit the cockpit perfectly.

    Mountain surf, medium (romany size) fits 90% of boats

    I went with this deck. It is really tight, but I love it and it fits my smaller cockpit too. It is tough to do up, but never implodes. :mrgreen:
