Scupper Pro Scupper Stoppers

Recommended Posts

I need to keep the seat and tank of my Scupper Pro dry when on the river. OK don't list stopper sizes for the Scupper Pro anymore but I found some mention online that the tank uses Extra Small and the cockpit Small.

 

Nucleus sent me some Small stoppers which seem to be OKay for the tank but poke out of the bottom of the boat rather alarmingly when used in the cockpit.

 

What size are other Scupper Pro paddlers using and do they normally stick out so far below the hull?

 

Thanks in anticipation,

and they do poke out the bottom! you wouldn't want one in the tankwell either, as it would be damn hard to open if you were swamped by a wave.

I loved my scupper stoppers before I got my drysuit, but have to be able to pull them out quick if you get swamped, which will happen eventually!

Thanks for that. I've never used stoppers before and the fit took me by surprise. I guess there is some leeway in sizing if you are using mediums since the smalls seem to fit and also to be listed online for the Pro.

 

I only want stoppers for river paddling, especially since the Scupper Pro has a permanently wet seat, I would never use them at sea. The tank one will help to keep my lunch dry!

The practice golf balls (very soft foam) are ideal! Push a needle through them and attach them together with nylon twine (a couple of foot long) push em in place and the string "loop" can be pulled quickly if you need to in emergency!. Or you could do similar to the bespoke stoppers by doing similar with twine. Works great even under the seat one! just lift ya bum yank the string and out they come!! ATB
