the seal fit great. I have an extra large cockpit so I was worried about getting a really good fit. This seal does the job. Thank you

I was happy to see prompt delivery of the Rutabaga cockpit seal. Quickly removing the blue poly-tarp from my Necky Monitor, I attempted and tried numerous times and various methods to stretch and fit around cockpit. Evidently I am needing to work out more and grow a third arm before cockpit seal will fit boat. In the mean-time I ordered and fit to boat a competitor's nylon seal which is suitably keeping weather etc. out of kayak.
