    Tell the guy to show you the rxp that lost speed after he installed these skegs.

    Ask him how they are going to cause drag when they lift the ski out of the water slightly, reducing the "wet surface" area which reduces drag and increases speed.

    The guy is talking out of his ass, plain and simple.

    You said it, way to go!!!!

    If this person is such a smart ass, have him quote the repeating number of pie, (as in Math, not an apple pie you sick dirty people).
