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.
Good product, easy to install with help of Ocean Kayak video on YouTube
It give you a great control. The ACK people install it without any additional charge. Thanks.
