Source for rudder replacement - Fenn Mako6

Hi Folks,
I'm sure this has been discussed before.
I want to replace the stock rudder on my mako6 for a
elliptical rudder 9".
Are there any good guys for this on this forum?
I'm in San Diego, CA.

Thanks.

Contact Hein van Rooyen at Carbonology Sport.

He sometimes visits this site.

Thanks RubberDuck,
I just sent them a message through their website.

Does anybody else please have any suggestions too?

I do not see any rudders listed on their website but you may want to contact Ocean Paddle Sports, they may be your closest Fenn dealer.

Huki may also be able to build you one based off a number of Jude's rudder designs.

Thanks for the answer folks.
Jude @ Huki is going to make me one.
I just have to send him the current one for correct fitting of the new one.

Hi Folks
Just got my new rudder back from Huki.
4 days between shipping my OEM rudder
for fitting and receiving it back together
with the new one + washers
I got the 9" elliptical. It's carbon over foam core
I think..sturdy and really well made.
the fitting is perfect ..no need to change anything or cut the cable etc...

And when I picked up a new rudder plus a spare for my V10, I had to cut about 5mm off and only use one of the locating pins because they stuffed up in manufacture.

Follow the path of the independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of 'crackpot' than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that are important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.--- Thomas J. Watson
