This skeg will fit 10" Kayak groove only. A few of these kayaks have a 6" a groove. Please measure groove before ordering. Improved Replacement Skeg for Intex Challenger K1 and K2; & Intex Explorer K1 and K2 inflatable Kayaks. I own both of these inflatable kayaks and really enjoy using them with my family. The only issue that I have with them is that at times the skeg comes out and it's just about impossible to find (as it is black and it sinks). The kayak is very difficult to maneuver without it. Being a manufacturing engineer most of my life, I set out to make a few improvements to this part to make sure that there were no issues with these kayaks on our vacation. Listed below are the improvements: 1) Made from "High-Density Poly Vinyl Chloride Plastic", a very tough material 2) This material is slightly more buoyant than water, so if it comes out, "it floats" 3) The material is bright white, so it can be spotted from a distance 4) The material is thicker than that of the original, allowing it to "shoulder up" on both sides of the groove on the kayak. This gives it a "tight fit" resulting in a much lower chance of it coming out. I think these enhancements greatly improve the skeg design, making it less likely to come out; and if it does it is much easier to find and retrieve as it floats. This replacement skeg is not manufactured by Intex.
