Shearwater kayak - fixed v deployable skeg?

Me again,

I have a Shearwater kayak on order (S&G). I intend to use it occasionally on the sea, but it will get quite a bit of use on our local river.

My question is, has anyone ever considered a deployable skeg for the Shearwater, rather than the fixed? Or is the boat manoeuvrable enough as-is, without the 'fun' of building in the box and cordage necessary for such a system?

Many thanks,
