I use skeg position very often when anchored in my boat. I anchor from the bow and let the tide/wind position the stern downcurrent. If I want the stern to shift to the port side, I turn the steering wheel to the right so that the force of current can push against the skeg and move it to the left. I do the opposite if I want the stern to shift to the starboard side.

It's not unlike wind on a sail.
