Sea Eagle has skegs that glue on. Follow the directions to the letter, and you should by fine.

You could probably tie one on using a rope harness over the top of the boat, you can do that on anything, but why would you want to?

It is not going to track really well in any event, and so you will just make it slower. Inflating it rally really well might help. This is a short boat and I suspect a bit high-sided, so it will catch the wind and it is more-or-less flat bottomed so it will spin a bit. (YMMV.)

SOURCE: is it worth get a skeg (non moving rudder)($75)

We have a 20ft Necky Tofino, and I installed a new SmartTrack rudder system on it last year. My wife is 5'2" and I'm 5'11", and we both love it because it's easily adjustable while you're sitting in the kayak. We can switch seats at any time with no problem.

The whole thing came to $250 with a spare blade.

Sevylor st5656 what air presure should be in it

The ST5656 is a low pressure hull, so shouldn't be inflated to more than 1 psi, or about as firm as a ripe grapefruit. If you leave it out in the sun you need to let some air out or the air inside will expand and it will blow up

Practice your paddling. Seriously.
I know someone who cannot paddle a kayak in a straight line because she puts more power on one side than the other and cannot seem to learn how to even it out.

    Sevylor river xk2 does not track well on still water

    This inflatable kayak is meant to turn to facilitate maneuverability in whitewater; it needs to turn.

    Try attaching piece of plastic as a skeg, perhaps the skeg from the Sevylor Tahiti will suffice (or a piece of lucite or a plastic cutting board). A skeg makes a boat track straight.

    My Sevylor Colorado came with an optional skeg which I only attach on flatwater (never whitewater).
