Gadget designed to dampen boater distress.
The Skeg, available in three sizes, is made of a durable composite material that is attached by means of special adhesive. This provides a flexible barrier against the walls of the keg, say designers, which in the event of an unwanted impact distributes force in all directions.
It retains its shape "through the innate memory of the composite which is aided by the adhesive makeup," says a spokesman.
