swede and fishform relate to where the maximum water line beam is in relation to,,,oh heck I forget,,in relation to some 'center',,i forget what that center is. The amount of weight you're putting in the stern is huge. I wonder how much the problem is expections, paddling technique, leaning WHILE introducing a more sweeping forward stroke, AND the hull. How does it paddle compared to Current Designs Caribou or Wilderness Systems Tempest? Those are two skegged kayaks that weathercock and respond to leaning yet a skeg is a necessary part of the design.
