I am currently building a Mill Creek 13 for a person who wants to give to his wife as a present. Wants me to put a four foot tapered skeg on the stern bottom to help it track true when paddling. I showed him the plans for the movable skeg from CLC. He mentioned that is was another thing to think about while paddling; wouldn't a small skeg function to the same thing for tracking? Dimensions are @45" X 2.5" X 1/2" tapered down to 3/4" ; would be using a straight piece of mahagony with brass 3/8" stem band on the bottom--weight is not a consideration. Any thoughts about a small skeg on a kayak?
