You ever tried to steer a boat without a rudder? Lol
At 70mph there isnít much of it in the water to begin with, not to mention it looks like he knocked most of it off.#keyboardcritic
70 mph with underwater hazards is the biggest issue IMO.
I would imagine the propulsion from the prop and the lower unit alone is enough to safely steer the boat. Iíve done it before, just not at 70 mph, but thatís kinda my point.
Skeg does more to protect prop than to assist steering. Iíve seen plenty motors with missing skegs and have driven a few of them. They donít handle any differently.
