Re: Other: Through-deck skeg experiences?

Hi john,
I did similar on my Petrel.Several skegs later and I have settled on a Perspex material.
There is a significant side clearence with no resonating rattle.Control lines were duplicated on top during a paddle with a loop going rond the coaming and a knot showing Skeg position.I am pleased with this design function.

All the best.
