  My over the stern skeg probably does
  Posted by: ricknriver on Nov-08-12 12:01 PM (EST)

a little as I would guess a partially deployed rudder. Little skeg experience till now but seems from the posts "it all depends" on the boat, conditions, skeg style/shape, paddler, etc. Just got my Easy Ryder Dolphin with an over the stern skeg and like it so far. Thin metal (rudder-like) blade, wider at the bottom than top so counter balanced and deployed by its weight from a line to the cockpit - very simple. Down it tracks very straight on all points of wind, up very maneuverable, in between can be tuned as you like. Thinking about one for my canoe. Just thoughts, R
