Here's where you get your hands dirty, so to speak. So if you like to build or customize things for the yak, this is your forum

To prevent damage to the skeg of the prowler i shaped a 300mm length of 12mm wide brass strip to the shape of the skeg and attached it using some car inner tube between the brass and the yak to provide a seal. This has proved to be very successful in preventing scrapping type damage.

Hey Glint,

I think I know what you've done but would love to see a picture if you have one?
