Deck for Everest

Post by eeonz » Mon Mar 20, 2017 7:57 am

I'm using a Pyranha Angry deck on my Pyranha Everest, but it's a real fight to get on. I've tried leaving it on the boat for a few days and have had it for a while, but it hasn't loosened much. It's great once it's on, but I can just jump in and go as fast as I'd like to when photo-boating etc.

It looks like the Everest cockpit is slightly larger than normal "Big deck" size. So what are other people using to get a good fit please?

Thanks

What kind of rivers are you doing? Can you give me examples of grades/sizes of drops etc

Class 4, no major drops. Something that will stay on for day to day paddling, without a fight.

An XXL cockpit IR deck might be a decent shout then. Not the cheapest option but extremely high quality.

I've used a Big Deck on an Everest no problems, it might be worth fitting it to the boat when wet & leaving it to dry on there. I had to do that with my Tuna for the first few times I used a new Playboater deck on it, it didn't take long to stretch it.

Or an IR deck like Mark says, I've got Klingon now & it's dead easy to put on, but stays on...
