  Trackmaster Plus
  Posted by: gstamer on Nov-14-12 10:01 PM (EST)
 

While that is correct for the start of her trip, while underway she was outfitted with the new "Trackmaster Plus" rudder. The newer rudder has a carbon blade that retracts like a skeg, into the rudder housing, and drops down to get a "deeper bite". It gives better steering response. The whole rudder can also be "locked out" (no movement) for paddling in reverse, etc.

I have the same rudder on my 18x and prefer it to the old design.
