just what I wanted.
After following their advice I ordered and got all excited about finally finding a cure for keeping my yak clean, especially having local felines finding the upside down cockpit irresitable as a camp site. Unfortunately the cover I received was about 3" shy of fitting end-to- end, while the side fit was perfect. I was tempted to try to stretch the cover over the lip, but one of the few advantages of growing up is that you learn when something's just not gonna work. This was one such case! Customer service was very helpful and took back the cover, even covering the return charges. My new replacement cover- a few inches longer but theoretically MORE NARROW by 3 inches turned out to be a perfect fit lengthwise buy FAR TOO WIDE to close up around the cockpit! As another reviewer also found, these things are not an exact science, more like a hope-for-the-best in each particular situation. Also like the other reviewer I guess I'll be keeping it since I already returned the first one, but I'm pretty disappointed that when it should be way tighter on the sides than the first one it's so loose it won't stay on. I don't blame ACK, as these things are made in China; I just wish it came within a mile of being the dimensions listed so it would work better.
Great Cover & Perfect Fit. Would Buy Again
Seems to be a VERY tight fit on my older Pamlico Excel. In my wife and I gave up on our only attempt so far to put this cover on ahead of an impending thunder storm. To be fair, the boat was sitting on a piece of indoor outdoor carpet under a car port at the time and it kept wanting to scoot around on the carpet when we tried to stretch the cover over the cockpit. We will give it another go but it's kind of looking like it may have to be returned. I like the quality of materials and workmanship as well as the design. Hopefully we can get it to stretch a bit to fit.
