  why vulnerable?
  Posted by: nycmhandy on Nov-11-12 9:06 PM (EST)
 

I hadn't thought about the possibility that a skeg box would make the stern more vulnerable in whitewater than it would otherwise be. You mean because the skeg box locally stiffens the hull? Or do you mean that the hull itself would be okay but the skeg box would be damaged by impact transmitted through the hull?
