No, I think the kayak is fine. Maybe it's that in flat water on a windless day you feel drag easily when you don't want to feel any drag at all in those conditions. I "estimate" that my skeg slows me down about 20%. I would call it significant. Significant enough that I avoid the skeg if at all possible. But if the end result without the skeg is that I'm exerting effort unnecessarily to stay on course, then I would use the skeg.
