Re: Skeg or not to skeg ?
Posted by craig on Oct 20, 2005
My Pax came with a skeg kit and, it being my first boat to build, I installed it. I lowered it once and realized how much drag it creates and never used it again. I added a rudder for river racing "cuz hard chine boat carve loooooooong graceful curves, but sometimes drag you through the bushes. The skeg is one of the reasons I am putting a new stripper deck on the boat. To get rid of it and install an under the hull rudder.
