Why are the skegs so tight to install?

The function of the skeg is to enhance lateral resistance, diminish packraft wobbling, improve tracking and speed, and maintain the boat’s direction. If the skeg is added loose, it can be easily lost during paddling.


  • 1.It is recommended to install it in an deflated state.
  • 2.Shaking it to effectively decrease resistance when you install or remove the skeg.
  • 3.Pouring water to the mount during installation to reduce resistance.
