The Wilderness Systems BTS Rudder Kit helps you gain control and efficiency in wind or fast current. The Wilderness Systems BTS Rudder Kit is the factory rudder for the Wilderness Systems Tarpon series, Pamlico Series, and Ride Series and Perception Essence kayaks. The Rudder Ready kit is for all 2009 - 2014 Wilderness Kayaks with cable tubing already installed. This kit includes all the necessary parts, hardware, and instructions to install a rudder on your boat.
This actually the second rudder kit I have purchased from ACK for Wilderness Systems kayaks. As with the first, this one came with all the required hardware and more. While the instructions aren't perfect, this isn't rocket science and the installation is a piece of cake. I highly recommend this product,
Like the previous user, the rudder is great once installed. Way too extra unneeded parts and a very poorly (an out-of- date) installation manual adds a lot of time time to the install.
