  Nordlow better without skeg
  Posted by: M-J-B on Nov-13-12 9:58 AM (EST)
 

My experience on flat calm water is that deploying the skeg on the Nordkapp LV adds drag and causes a slight speed penalty when I attempt top speed. Going straight is a matter of paddling technique and even a polo kayak goes straight with the correct technique and concentration. (I use a short paddle and high angle.)
