jeff-whoosh-t37 skeg

I don''t know anything about a Tartan 372 losing a skeg. I don''t like the idea of a bolted on skeg as it is very hard to build one that has sufficient strength. If I were designing a boat for myself that had a structural skeg, the skeg would be constucted over a male molds and then installed in a scaboard which then would be glassed into place with knees extending a long distance in four directions.
