    Easy enough install, straight forward directions. Amazing control on the open sea. Should have installed rudder years ago.

    The kit is yet to be tested but appears to be good quality. It was missing hardware, two Strap Eyes, and contained hardware that did not match the directions. As an example, the Rudder connection bolt was supposed to be a 4" was was supplied as a 6". The bolts to attach the Cam Cleat were to short by 3/8" to even get threads to show through the lock nut. The kit only had 2 blind rivets in it and called for 6. That's just the highlights. Overall, I think I will be very satisfied with the rudder kit but the Quality Control in putting the kit together was lacking.

    Top Question & Answer
    Q: When paddling, I like to be "locked in" with some pressure on the pegs. If I install this rudder but don't deploy it, will that affect the "feel" of the foot pegs? -alternately phrased- If the rudder is "up," are the pegs prone to moving as they are when the rudder is being steered? I hope my question is not confusing! :-)
    A: Yes, you will see notable rigidity in the foot pegs when the rudder is in the up position. The reason being, there is a rudder catch that locks the rudder in one place when the rudder blade is in the up position.

    Q: I have a ok prowler 13, older than 2009, bought used in 2008. would this rudder kit work with my prowler?
    A: To determine what rudder would work, we would need that exact year of your kayak. The last two digits are the year of that kayak. In the link provided, there are instructions on how to locate that number. http://bit.ly/1Cqj1Ra
