  Skeg
  Posted by: rjd9999 on Nov-06-12 3:38 PM (EST)
 

A lot of energy is wasted making correcting strokes and wind and stroke imbalances may exist when paddling, even on flat water.

A skeg is probably the best method of both reducing the required number of correcting strokes during any distance paddling. They also provide the benefit of resisting whatever mild wind may affect tracking. Skegs tend to have surprisingly mild effects on overall drag, so deploying them in flat water is something I'd recommend.
