Question: What is a jupe skirt?
The jupe skirt, also know as a cell skirt, consists of several cells
look like cones with their tops cut off and have their bases attached
to the bottom of the craft. When inflated, these cones readily
support the weight of the craft upon a stable cushion. A jupe
skirted craft generally utilizes a minimum of 2 or 3 cells surrounded
by a large jupe that encompasses the perimeter of the craft.
Although a jupe skirted craft is very stable, it will experience
difficulty when attempting to inflate the jupes on a rough terrain
such a tall grass or deep gravel. Jupe skirts also tend to scoop
water in rough conditions and drag on grass.
