Installing rudder on tandem kayak
Posted by: old_user on Jul-22-13 4:48 PM (EST) Category: Kayaks
Purchased a used, tandem Riot Sea Chaser kayak this weekend, and I find I'd really like to add a rudder to the boat, if at all possible!
The rear of the boat (see pix) appears like it might support a rudder, but as I'm a n00b to paddling I'd appreciate any advise re: any universal rudder kits that may work on this boat?
Many thanks in advance!

Feathercraft and SmartTrack both make aftermarket rudders, but they're $200+, and you'd still probably have to make a custom bracket for your stern.

You can see the two bolts at the stern; these are designed to hold on a bracket for the rudder as mentioned above. Most bracket bolts I've seen are aligned vertically as opposed to horizontally.
