Re: Skeg installation
Posted by Matthew Keller on Sep 3, 2006
I used the CLC plans and installed a skeg on my Patuxent 19.5. This boat is similar to your boat but just a couple feet longer. The skeg is great. It makes the boat track like a train. When your out on the water and you just want to fly, it can't be beat. I am a Greenland paddler now but I still love taking out that boat and just cruising. No corrective strokes are needed. Just drop the skeg and go, pull it up to turn, or just don't put it in if you don't want to. CLC has a great design and it is fairly easy to put it in an existing boat. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
