    An All Plastic Add-on Skeg for a Sevylor Inflatable Kayak

    Please forgive me if you had no interest in my first skeg prototype and that interested has declined with each new iteration.

    For that one person who cares, here is, what might be, the final design. It is fabricated with commonly available tools and materials, is made entirely of PVC, and is sealed so it floats.

    If you are interested, please see

    Your comments are welcome. All of us are smarter than any one of us.


    Thanks,

    Not sure what you mean by "declining ones". Please educate me.

    In your original post you said, "Please forgive me if you had no interest in my first skeg prototype and that interested has declined with each new iteration."

    Perhaps I misunderstood? I just meant to convey that I'd never seen your prior posts. i.e. this is the dirst one I've seen, and I liked it. So I thanked you for sharing your experience. I'm confident that as the weather warms up, I'll be building one.
