I have never understood why anyone would be in the "no rudder" club. Especially those who say they don't "need" a rudder. No one should need a rudder, but many will find that a rudder increases efficiency by a few percent, so why not? Rudders are very nice, so are skegs, so are boats without rudders.
A deployed skeg might be even harder on your shoulder than no skeg, since it could require stronger sweeps.
