Deck for a narrow cockpit - Explorer

Post by tizereyes » Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:07 pm

Hey folks
I have an old NDK Explorer. The cockpit is only 44cm wide. Could anyone suggest a spray deck that would fit tightly?

I currently have a Lomo which was OK, but the body tube has frayed. So not that keen to get another one.

They should have a standard size to fit it, and if not they will make a custom if you draw round the coaming and mark where the back of the seat is (so they can get the waist tube in the right place).
