I just fitted a set of spay skirts to my TI. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.
Sure, you still get wet, but you don't get drowned.

I love them,,,,, but more importantly men,,,,, my wife loves them.

Great Video! Shows what it can do, much better than I have described. Good Job!

Do they fit okay with tramps? My three-year-old gets a little annoyed at getting green water in his face when h's on the tramps!

Yes, they mount underneath the tramps.

I sailed 5 years without them. I thought my TI was fitted with a turbine. Since I fitted the spray skirts, the whining from the front seat ceased.
THEY ARE GREAT!

Here's an alternative to spray skirts: a 2-mil hooded parka (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007P ... UTF8&psc=1)

I got mine a size larger than what I officially take and it has turned to be a great garment - both for sailing and general nasty-weather use.

That looks nice. What do you pair it with on the bottom? I'm really enjoying sailing my Island in this 50-60 deg weather, but could use a little more insulation for my head and bottoms. Don't really want to get a scuba hood and full wetsuit.
