    Creates lift for less drag...equals more speed!

    SKEG = Sliding Kalibrated Extruding Girdle

    it enhances handling and makes the ski handle liek it's on rails, which it quite frankly is with these on. with these protruding down, it forces the ass end of the hull to lift higher out of the water thus reducing the wet surface and increasing top speed

    Green Hulk will be selling them, and they are prototypes being tested. should be avilable within next few weeks. Applied with a strong marine epoxy
