With the addition of a rudder to your kayak, you'll be better able to navigate ocean waves, steer through tight inlets, or quietly slip into the perfect spot to land a record large mouth. You'll also enjoy better control when winds kick up or you hit turbulent water. If your kayak was made in 2005 or after, you can attach a rudder to your kayak with the Necky Single Touring Rudder Kit the kit includes all of the parts and hardware you need. The rudder included in the kit is made of durable aluminum that stands up to run ins with rocks, and with proper care, will last a lifetime. Once installed, you'll be able to deploy the rudder, control steering with easy to operate foot pedals, and lift the rudder back up in shallower water.
