Don't really want to add one...but it's the better half's kayak...so her boat, her call....
The original Tchaika did not offer it (95'), but it was offered starting in 98' and was sold until 2003...so it may have been a needed/demanded option for some... ( http://www.wildernesssystems.com/content/wildernesssystems.com/assets/page/archived_catalogs/Wildy%20Boat%20History.pdf )
If anyone has a Tchaika with a rudder, I would be most grateful if you could post or send pictures of it.
