This video below instructs and demonstrates how to convert one of the Ultraskiff Covers into the new "Skiff Poncho". The Skiff Poncho is a partial cover that protects the rod holders, cup holders and compartments from rain water while leaving the boat fully outfitted with a motor, battery and seat system. WIth the Poncho on you can still keep your phone and gear in the cup holders and you can still open and close all of the compartments while allowing ALL of the water that hits the skiff to be directed into the drainage canal below your seat. You can also leave the boat fully outfitted while docked or on a trailer in the rain. When you fish in the rain in the Ultraskiff 360 without a cover, water will get into the rod holders, cup holders and some water will leak into the compartments. After a storm its usually just a very small amount water in the compartments which if the boat is laying flat and upright uncovered you just have to lift the boat up to empty it out. For those diehard fishermen who find themselves in the rain, the Skiff Poncho is an excellent accessory.
