VENTURE - Skeg (Ranger 162)

We’re not sure how it’s taken over 10,000 years to come to this, but we’re here now! A canoe… with a skeg! When Pyranha introduced skegs to kayak designs beyond the sea kayak realm, they did so to help ease the learning curve for those developing their forwards paddling and trying to go in a straight line; a skeg in this context makes even more sense on a canoe. A skeg for a canoe is also relevant in the same ways as it is for a sea kayak (i.e. to counteract lee cocking or weathercocking), and thanks to the fact that most canoes can be paddled facing in either direction, in an even more versatile manner.
