Re: Strip: Building Bjorn Thomasson's Frej

I have used a permanant skeg located just behind the cockpit on a couple wood kayaks also. This location worked great. The kayak lost very little maneuverability and gained all the tracking needed. The part I liked the most was that it reduced broaching from rear or rear quartering waves. I'm still surprised that no production manufacturers have used this location as an advantage in handling over their competitors.
