Old Fiberglass Frontiersman(Rudder/Skeg/None?))
Date: 6/7/2001, 3:02 pm

I have an old Fiberglass Frontiersman Sea Kayak. It was probably manufactured in Canada (New Westminster BC) around the late 1960's or early 1970's. Should I consider putting a rudder, skeg on it our should I just leave it as is? Can I build one? What is the big difference between a rudder and skeg? (performance wise?)
