I happen to have one right here in my hands -- a replacement that will get installed in a few weeks, hopefully.
It is essentially a long, narrow right triangle, with the right angle radiused (rounded) in by about 3/4-1".
Take a piece of suitable wood (mahogany, teak, etc) and cut it to a rectangular shape with dimensions 30 3/4" x 3 3/4". Then cut it down the diagonal -- the hypotenuse (the side that will attach along the underside of the hull) should now measure out at about 30 7/8". But measure carefully, and don't forget to factor the kerf of your saw blade.
You now have two skegs - a replacement and a spare!
We went with a thickness of 1" for our replacement -- to beef it up a bit. But if I recall correctly, the original is 3/4" thick.
We also used the router to cut the hand-hold, which I wouldn't be without. It is very convenient when lifting and flipping the dinghy.
P.S. I can take some photos if it would help.
