  Skegs increase waterline length?
  Posted by: Northyak on Nov-08-12 11:31 AM (EST)
 

From a hydrodynamic perspective, does a deployed skeg increase the effective waterline length of a boat, and thus increase the (effective) maximum speed and/or add more efficiency? Does this balance the negative effects of added drag?
