    Skeg is a raised area on the rideplate running from front to back. Originally a skeg was the part of the boat that connected the bottom of the keel to the bottom of the rudder and provided support for the rudder, but now it's used to describe anything that sticks down from the rear of the hull. Skegs help in the tracking (ability to hold a line) and stability in turning.

    Bling (bling bling) is a slang term for something that's shiny, sparkley, or flashy and meant to draw attention and show off that it's either expensive or looks expensive.

    Skegs: The fins that are on the bottom of the R&D rideplate
    Bling: The shiny factor of a certain product...or a sickening display of chrome, on parts they don't belong on (see RXP) .

    '05 Pump: The inside diameter of the '05 pump is 75mm, which is larger than the earlier GPR model pumps and the same as a Skat Trac magnum pump.
