    I put this on my Hurricane Sojourn 135. The boat was already set up for this exact rudder and installation was very simple for me, although I do similar work like this daily. The rudder adds so much control to the kayak. There is no more constant correction to get where you want to be. The foot pedals are an engineering work of art. You can adjust the placement of the pedals and never loose tension of the cables. The pedals are comfortable and easy to use. Hurricane kayaks has a youtube video showing how to install the rudder on one of their boats. It's very informative and I'm sure will help anyone who is planning to put this rudder on whatever kayak they own ad well. The pop up feature on the rudder is very easy to use and keeps the rudder safe even if you forget to pull it up in shallow waters. I had to purchase the cable cover and the rudder bracket separately for my application. Now if you really want to have fun add an umbrella to your boat and get out there in some wind, the rudder makes kayak sailing a breeze (yeah I just said that). I don't think you'll find a better system than this

    I purchased this kit for our WS Pamlico 145 tandem, which gets a bit squirrelly in our mostly tide-current swept local waters. ACK shipped fast and the rpice was very cometitive. I was attracted by the materials used in construction as well as the NACA airfoil section and shape of the rudder blade. It's a very efficient design and the tandem size offers a balanced design to minimize drag and create some lift. I've been a sailor for more than 40 years, doing all my own maintenance, so while this was not a super-easy install, it wasn't really very difficult for me, especially as the kayak was set up for the mid-pin tail mount already. Only a few holes had to be drilled, but having installed through-hulls in a fibreglass sailboat, drilling in polyethylene was no biggie. I would just stress: measure at least twice and mark and use a centerpunch to start the drill bit, before drilling. Fibreglass can be patched and repaired, but not so much, poly. I needed to purchase both the tubing kit and the stern bracket. The bracket is not included despite the listing copy indicating all mounting hardweare is included. I was especially pleased witht he footblock, toe-activated rudder pedals' design and the ingenious, cool wedgies thingies for attaching the rudder cables to the rudder quadrant control arms. I'm looking forward to our first ruddered launch, very soon!
