  I can address the Tempest RM
  Posted by: edzep on Nov-06-12 4:07 PM (EST)

(not sure about other boats)

I have to put the skeg down frequently, if I want to line up a picture, or do anything else while not paddling, since the Tempest will otherwise drift off in one direction or the other. And, almost as often, I forget to bring the skeg up when I'm back under way. So, I'm paddling along and start to wonder, "Why am I slogging?!" D'oh, skeg down, again. It's very noticible, if you're paddling with any vigor.
