Skeg-retro fit

Post by Greenlandpaddler »

I live near Poole in Dorset and I am looking for someone who can retro-fit a skeg on a composite sea kayak. There used to be a guy called Peter ? In Weymouth that was very good at this sort of thing, but I cannot seem to find him. Does anyone know of someone who can do a good job and are not too far away from the Poole area? Thanks.
