**If purchasing spray deck for a canoe with built in flotation tanks you will require 4 of the Seattle Sports Tri-Way Lashmates to attach the skirt at the bow and stern
1) One Cargo Hatch
Allows easy access to gear during the day (lunch, cameras, etc.). YKK zipper secures the hatch while a 420-nylon cover with hook and loop helps shed water and keep the zipper free of dirt and grit. L 18" x W 23".
2) Two Cockpits
Designed for sitting or kneeling. Constructed of high quality waterproof fabric with a 2" Velcro closure for safe, quick access in and out. When paddling calm waters the cockpits can be tucked under the deck to provide ventilation. Hoops in front of the cockpits create a splashguard to deflect water away from the paddlers. They can be easily removed when not in use yet remain stationary with our new pocket system. Once your deck is installed the hoops can be trimmed to the proper length.
3) NEW! Roll-Away Cockpit Tabs
A set of 7 velcro tabs around each cockpit to roll the cockpit down and away from you on those fair weather paddling days.
4) 14 oz Vinyl Coated Polyester
The deck fabric is very durable, will not tear and is very resistant to puncture. It is waterproof, has mould, mildew and UV inhibitors and is unaffected by temperature extremes. It is easy to field repair with any vinyl glue or our Vinyl-Tec 2000 (50ADH-05). Available in Red, Green, Blue.
5) Painter Tie-Down
Velcro closure straps and built in carabineer loop at the bow and stern to keep painter lines or throw bags at the ready.
6) Paddle Pocket
This pocket allows paddlers fast access to a spare paddle. You can specify the length for a perfect fit.
7) Nylon Webbing Deck Loops
Webbing loops provide contact points approximately every 10" for lacing the deck to the canoe. This system allows the deck to be drawn tight to shed water, regardless of load height.
8) Lashing Patches
These patches lash the Spray Deck to your canoe. We use a system that is easy to install and allows adjustment of load height to eliminate pooling. They will not corrode or jam like conventional snaps. They are low profile to eliminate snagging on branches, rocks and knuckles. Attached to the inside your boat, they allow the use of a single-pull lashing cord to draw the deck tight. When the deck is removed your hull retains a nice, clean look. (see our FAQ page) The patches are also field maintainable without tools.
9) 3" Rub Strips
Protects your deck from paddle and general wear and tear along the gunwales.
10) Para-Line Lashing Cord
These lines secure your deck to the boat. They can be one length running down each side or multiple lengths so you can roll back the bow and/or stern areas while keeping what remains taut over your gear. This type of system used with our optional two or three-piece deck gives you the ultimate in versatility. Tensile strength 300lbs. (see our FAQ page)
Note: Complete installation kit is included with each Spray Deck.
