sounds about right

I think the "debate" begins when people talk about using skegs NOT for wind, but to compensate for a hull that may be too loose, or for a paddler's technique causing side-to-side veer. Or, in my case, just to coast in a straight line when not paddling -- messing with a camera. Some of us have found that the skegs cause drag and impede speed. I often forget to put my skeg up, after taking photos. I soon notice that the boat feels sluggish.
