I'm not sure what the back of the boat looks like but Pat from Onno Paddles hooked me up with his P41 kick up rudder and a special bracket for my V10 Sport and it's awesome. A real work of art. Check out his web site and give him a call or e-mail and he'll help you out. Real great guy to work with. Chaz

Maybe the over stern from a down river K1? Just need to cut the back of the ski a bit, pop in a bracket, glass it up again and you're set.


Pretty easy, and they don't cost too much either.

Thanks Chaz,

Indeed my rudder will work just fine on the XT or any other Fenn kayak. No need to cut off the back ... Couple options for super clean mounting ... None requiring a blade.

please feel free to give me a shout anytime ...


thanks.

My past experience with "economical" rudders wasn't great. The economy was soon forgotten when I had to live with the thing. Those were made of sheet aluminum and did turn the boat, but other things would have worked better.
Probably the least amount of surgery done to your boat is best.

YES ! : )

If you have the various cable cables set up for different boats it would take less than a minute to interchange between boats.
