    We received the rudder kit quickly with everything needed. The directions could have been better, thank goodness for u-tube video to help. The screws given to us to install the cables for the up and down of the rudder were too long; but it was easy to find shorter stainless steel screws that worked. The rudder workers great.

    Review:
    Installed on Tarpon 140 - easy to install, one minor deviation from the instructions - said something about removing covers from the cable guides - mine did not have anything - simply inserted and pushed - twist a bit when it gets to the other end to help it through. A bit worried about the longevity of the bungi-cord at the end but I expect it will be easy to replace if/when it breaks. Like the foot braces that come with this kit MUCH better than the stock ones (which flexed too much)

    Haven't try the rudder on water yet. Installation went smootly. I recommend viewing of installation videos available on the Internet to ease the process. All parts were were in the package and well designated. GREAT service from ACK: delivered on time and quick answers even about Canadian delivery.

    Fantastic - the kit worked great. The handling in rough water & high winds is so much better. I found a couple of YouTube video's that helped show how to assemble.

    If you put your tarpon in a river with some current, this rudder is a necessity. I worked my butt off in a local river without this rudder. With this kit the boat handles great.

    Works great and easy to install on my Tarpon 140. If you need a rudder on your Tarpon save money and do it yourself.

    Haven't tried out yet. A little tricky to install with no illustrations, but was not too bad. Seems to be a great fit

    Review:
    My Tarpon 160 w/rudder rocks. Even though I bought a left over 2012 from the outlet side I expected more from ACK. Based on looking at the protective wrapping and quickly opening it up when it was delivered I signed for it because I had to rush back to work (my fault). Upon further inspection it looked like it was tossed around. Surface scratches on the forward and rear decks and the sides and bottom of the hull. Like I said before, I based my initial inspection on the protective wrapping and a quick cut open. That won't happen a 2nd time. Not happy. Again, my fault for not performing a more thorough inspection. It still paddles like a dream. Yes, I will buy more stuff from ACK. They still are 2nd to none.
