What size Reed spray skirt fits a Romany Surf?

Post by HudsonKayaker »

Hi I just got a Surf and I was wondering if anyone knew which keyhole size I should get for a Reed skirt since the NDK keyhole size (Keyhole B) that Reed suggests is listed for the Explorer and Romany classic and the Surf has a bigger cockpit.

Does Keyhole B still fit for the Surf or do people go with another size?

Many thanks in advance!

If you send Reed a paper template of your cockpit they will give you the size to match or make one specifically if necessary - I've always found them very helpful. Worth a phone call first.

I'm pretty sure it is "Keyhole B", but not quite confident enough to say the OP should deffo go with that.

In general I would echo the above, certainly for a home made boat or something a bit obscure, but they're not going to need a template sending for a Surf.
Either give them a shout, or just tick the "Not Sure" box for size while ordering online and comment to let them know what boat it needs to fit.

We ordered one from them two weeks ago and we sent them all the NDK cockpit measurements from the NDK brochure at the link below:

Delivered spraydeck was a perfect fit and was for the Romany Surf (Carbon Kevlar)
