Getting the right fit


N/R sizes (nylon or neoprene decks)
Nylon decks are marked with N sizes and neoprene decks are marked with R sizes. Because nylon spraydecks do not stretch like neoprene ones, touring boats with exceptionally large cockpits will usually need a larger size nylon deck than a neoprene one. A size 6 cockpit will often take a size 5 or 6 deck in neoprene.
A tight fit
The easiest spraydeck to put on might not stay on the best or keep the most water out. Which is most important to you? A neoprene spraydeck will become easier to put on a kayak when wet, so wet out the edge of your deck as you get in your boat. Over time, a neoprene spraydeck will stretch with use, becoming easier to put on your cockpit. KNytex, Gripsil, and other protective materials will reduce the amount of stretch in a deck making a good fit even more important. Nylon spraydecks do not stretch, so make sure you get a good fit before you buy, especially with larger cockpits. These charts are only a guide, kayak cockpits vary greatly in size and shape. Visit your local retailer and try the gear on to be sure of a good fit.
