Like most racing boats NEED the rudder, many standard kayaks perform better the skeg.
I like that you took the GPS and made your own discovery with it. I learn the most about my different boats by trying to pay attention to how it responds in different situations, but I'd do better if I kept notes.
Right now, my newest boat does not respond well to an outside edge but really turns with an inside edge which is opposite of what I do most of the time. It is really taking me a long time to adjust. I hope to become unconsciously competent with it, but then I wonder if I'll be able to go back to a sea kayak and paddle using mostly the outside edge.
