    The instructions were very detailed but not completely accurate. The suggested hole size to drill for the control line was too small by about a quarter inch which left me increasing the size one 0.0001" at a time until I could get the guide for the control line to fit. The holes in the bracket for the rudder did not line up with the pre-installed threads in my boat (both Hobie). Inside the hull, a rubber tube is supposed to hold the two ends of the guild for the control line together. The tube was not tight enough, so the guides would fall out and bang on the hull. This was resolved with crazy glue. With all this said... the install was probably easier on my Hobie than it would have been if I had purchased a generic rudder kit. Function is fine. It made my Quest track a million times better. I enjoy the ability raise the rudder from the cockpit of the boat.

    Good - Rudder mechanism is solid, and works. Bad - Instructions are almost worthless. I had to throw them away, lay out all the parts, and figure it out through trial and error. The tube that encloses the control cord is too short to meet in the middle. To trim the system, after installation, you wrap the cord around a screw. Tacky.

    The rudder is very well engineered and functions fine. But, getting there was a pain for me. The instructions were not clear. They could have been more clearly written. The pictures were out of focus and not much help. The instructions leave out the specifics about hooking up the up/down lines to the spool. Fortunately, there were instructions on the Hobie website that I found helpful. I apparently have an older model Quest 13 and the rudder control pedals have changed. The instructions said new pedals were included, but they were not. I had to devise a different method of attaching the lines to the pedals until I can get newer pedals. Once I got the installation done, I am satisfied with the product.

    Very complete kit. Everything is included. Instructions were detailed but could be better. The photos are in black and white and some details are hard to see. The overall quality is excellent.
