Write a review for Ocean Kayak Prowler 13 Rudder Kit
*Please Note: Both colors and patterns are for general reference only. Colors may vary from computer to computer.
Installing was fairly painless, I
don't know why I waited so long
to do this, makes a huge
Great product! Installed without
The instructions were easy to
follow. I installed over 2 nights
for a total time of about an hour
Peter from Australia
Great addition to my Prowler
13, much easier to paddle when
the wind is pushing the front
of the kayak to the side.
Installation was quite easy
with help from the YouTube
video. I didn't have to make
the large hole behind the seat
due to the advice got from ACK
A big thanks. With a bit of
patience I was able to get the
cable tubing through the the
holes by tipping the kayak on
its side. Had to drill some
holes in the rudder bracket as
the holes didn't line up with
the screw holes on the back.
My Prowler didn't have the
marks where to drill either
however just put them roughly
where they show on the video.
Best to look at the
instructions on the Internet
as they are much clearer than
the ones supplied.
Havent had it out yet but it appears to be
working fine mechanically and is sturdy
looking. Three star review is for the
installation instructions from Ocean Kayak. Be
ready to improvise. For instance my Prowler
13T didnt have the pre marked drilling holes
noted in the instructiions. OK customer
service tried to help but in the end I just
made a leap of faith based on pictures in the
written instructions and a freeze frame of the
OK video instructions on their website. Also,
highly recommend both watching the video and
reading written instructions as they arent
always the same. Little items but it is very
helpful to have both sets of instructions
The rudder is excellent and works
perfectly. The only reason I did
not give it 5 stars is because of
the assembly instructions...
There were three sets of photo
copied instructions packed with
the rudder and the pictures were
in black and white (dark and
difficult to see) and pretty much
useless for clarifying the
instructions. I would recommend
anyone buying one of these kits
to go online and print out the
instructions in color before
starting the assembly. I really
believe for the price, color
instructions should have been
included with the kit; it would
have saved me several hours of
trying to figure out the rope
installation before I finally had
to stop and go print out the
color instructions to complete
the job. The mechanical part of
the assemly was easy and took
very little time to complete.
Although I am very happy with the
finished product; the
instructions that wasted my
valuable time kept me from rating
your kit with a 5 star rating. My
recommendation to you is to spend
the extra few cents to include
color instructions with your
kits. Since I am done with the
job there is little you can do to
help me now and I do not expect
you to do anything further for
me. I will inlude my email
address if you are interested in
any further explanation...
We agree that the instructions would be better in color, but they are supplied and packaged from the manufacturer in black and white. We have instructions on the site for all rudder kits in the Articles and Research section or at this link http://www.austinkayak.com/articles/articles.php
rudder is great! make sure you have a 2008 or later version of the boat because the boat changed shape
All Ok. Thanks
Outstanding addition to the kayak, makes controlling during running tides and excellent fighting against the wind. A must for tidal yakers. Remember measure twice cut once, play with the rudder to determine cable lengths.
Item was easy to attach to our ocean kayak. We used it out in the bay fishing and even with some wind it was easy to control.
I installed the rudder kit in my Ocean Prowler Thirteen Angler and I really enjoy the difference,especially with a quartering or side wind and waves. Now I can better enjoy the experience on the water and not feel worn out trying to fight wind and waves, and maintain an easy, relaxing trip.
