Need an skeg for an Impex Assateague kayak. Now that Impex has folded, any suggestions on parts for their kayaks. Have tried local kayak shops without any luck. Any clue if the skegs where out-sourced to another company?

Broken, cracked, bent? |

If the attachment point on the kayak is OK, it isn't rocket science to make one from scratch. If it can't be done with glass, carbon, and epoxy, check out machine shops, sailboat repair. They have to fabricate from scratch.

Kayak was purchased, missing the skeg. Boat is in excellent condition, minus the missing skeg. It was acquired, after Impex closed shop. Figured parts would still be available. They seem to have dried up quickly. May have to go the homemade route.

North Shore Kayaks skeg blades are interchangeable. Valley Canoe Products Large Oval and Small Round Hatch Covers are what Impex used.
